When it comes to wrought iron bed frames, we prefer those with a more contemporary look; here's a trio of sourcing ideas.

Above: Tropical estate Maison Couturier in Veracruz mixes a clean white iron bed with bold choices, like a black-painted wall as headboard backdrop.

Above: Schoolhouse Electric's Hamilton Steel Bed Frame references early 20th century iron bedsteads. Made in North Carolina exclusively for Schoolhouse, it's built of welded steel and is available with a gray, white, or bright yellow powder-coat finish; $1,250.

Above: The Millbrook Iron Bed from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child is available in a twin ($499) and a full size ($599);
