Updated Jan 2023: These type of beds are getting harder to find. Every year I have to update this post and have to change out beds that are no longer sold. I’ve added some more French-looking beds that are equally if not more gorgeous!

I get so many questions about where I got my upholstered bed. I bought it just before I moved in this house over eight years ago at Restoration Hardware online and unfortunately they no longer carry it. Isn’t that always the case?

But today I’m sharing 14 French wooden and upholstered beds and that are similar to the bed frame I have.

French bed Details

My French bed has curved feet and white distressed wood and a soft linen upholstered headboard. I do not have a footboard as it’s nice to be able to sit on the end of it and have the duvet hang over the end of the bed. The ones I found had either no footboard or a short footboard.

So these are the features that I kept in my mind while searching for beds that were similar to mine:

  • Wooden frame
  • Upholstered linen headboard
  • Wooden feet

14 French style beds

1. Toulouse wood and upholstered bed

Although this bed isn’t curved like my headboard, I really love the natural wood finish with the linen fabric and nail heads. And it’s a bestseller!

2. Evelyn upholstered bed

This is a quintessential French bed!! It’s a gorgeous color and I love all the detailed features on it.

3. Kellyton upholstered bed

This one is very similar to my bed. I love the subtle curves and color of wood. It does have a footboard but it’s very shallow than most.

4. Layton upholstered platform bed

I love the big upholstered headboard to this bed. It gives you a feeling of a modern but still gorgeous French bed.

5. Linwood upholstered bed

I love the masculinity of this bed but with the touch of linen. A great compromise for a spouse that is opposed to the curved lines of a French style bed.

6. Lafayette upholstered bed

I love this bed and recently featured it here in this neutral bedroom design. It’s the perfect mix between modern and French style, the slight curve of the headboard is just the right amount.

7. Colette upholstered bed

This bed has nice clean lines with just a subtle curve on the headboard and legs. It is fully upholstered so it’s extra cozy.

8. Delaney platform bed

I know this has gold metal legs instead of wood but be still my heart! I have the Delaney marble coffee table in my living room and love it.

9. Malena upholstered bed

This bed reads modern French with the metal on it. I think it’s stunning and very comparable to the the Delaney bed (#8).

10. Lyell upholstered bed

LOVE the curve piece of wood on either side of the bed. This would be another great substitute for a partner that doesn’t like big curved details.

11. Caracole upholstered bed

This upholstered beds has curves in all the right spots. I love the subtleness of these curves, so beautiful.

12. Olympia bed from Eloquence

Eloquence has THE most gorgeous French furniture but pricey. So much fun to look around their website and drool.

13. St. Martin upholstered bed

I love this one! It looks so similar to my bed. It’s curved without it looking too feminine. The legs are my favorite.

14. Aguirre upholstered bed

Doesn’t this bed look just like the Toulouse?? And for a fraction of the price! It’s a beauty.

  1. It’s a great roundup of beds. My favourite for the shape is the Elwyn. Unfortunately, you can’t buy just the headboard. Buying the whole bed really ups the price. Like you, I like to see the bedskirt show (custom made). I have a beautiful bench at the bottom of the bed so a footboard would not be seen anyway. I’m sure this will be helpful to others though. Thank you for doing this
    PS If you ever decide to sell yours, let me know and I’ll be there.😉

    1. Hi Joanna,
      I agree, the price is definitely steep as you’re not just buying a headboard. I love the Elwyn too. This bed was definitely a splurge for me but the bed I had before this one lasted 25 years so I thought it was about time.

    1. I would die over an Eloquence bed!! Did you buy it from Lidy? I thought I remember seeing something about that awhile ago. I think you should just set it up already!

  2. Okay…so I just might have signed up for a Beautiful Bedrooms Home Tour that starts in 2 weeks…and I absolutely do not have a beautiful bedroom! We don’t even have a headboard! Our bedroom was way down on the makeover list, and I thought I might try doing something with it later this summer, but now am trying to pull something together before this blog tour! This post was perfect inspiration! We have several different wood tones already in the room, so I am thinking a linen or leather headboard or maybe a metal bed might be the best choice. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh Amber, you sound like me! I use tours as a deadline to get my butt in gear, haha. Good luck putting together your bedroom. I’m sure it will be gorgeous!
      Hugs, Jamie

  3. I like your style and this article. I really liked the Fallon Upholstered Bed because it’s romantic and classic French. It reminds me of the Villa Royal Upholstered Bed, the traditional style bed we carry on Bombay. Bombay carries a lot of French style vintage furniture. You should come check it out. Are you Canadian or based in WA?

  4. Hi Jamie,
    Your bed looks stunning!
    Was your bed frame in white distressed wood when you bought it or did you paint it yourself?

  5. Where did you get the spread your kitty is on? As well as the bench in the same photo? Both are gorgeous. Your cat is beautiful, too!!! TIA
