Here is one of the many "perks" you get when using and orginal old antique iron bed.......STORAGE SPACE, under the bed. Clearance on most old iron beds is 13". Modern bed have only 5". That's a whole lot of great space that can be utilized for storage.
A simple/classic design such as this iron bed, can be all that's needed to give a peaceful serene setting like this what it needs. A more elaborate style or design would have taken away from the feel of the room.
