The shape does matter, in my opinion. I recently got rid of my scrolly metal bed and replaced it with a bed that has gorgeous straight modern lines in brass. If you stick with a simple straight shape, a brass bed doesn't have to feel like it's your grandma's. I think these clean shapes will be classic and timeless.
Ok and maybe even better then brass, copper. Holy Cow, I need a guest room so I can get mya hands on these gorgeous copper master pieces?
Copper and pink - does it get any better?
So what do you think? Can metallic bed frames feel modern and fresh, or is it hard for you to see past the dated brassyness?
