I just stumbled across this Charles P. Rogers Marseille Forged Iron Bed ($500-1,400, reduced from $700-1700), and I'm totally in lust with it. I love how, while it does have ornate iron scrollwork and decorative castings, it's still not too fussy. The negative space, almost creating a fleur-de-lys shape, is where its beauty lies. The frame itself isn't too thick either — as opposed to Pottery Barn's heftier iron beds — giving it a much more delicate shape. Better yet, it's on sale for $200-300 less than its original price! Of course, it's still an investment, but it's one you can count on with such a timeless shape.
