Made to Measure Bed Bases for Your Antique Bed

If you have an antique bed frame which holds sentimental value or complements the style of your home but is not offering you the quality of sleep that you need, getting a replacement bed base for your antique bed could be the solution.

Antique metal sprung bed bases were typical for their time, and were characterised by exposed springs. Although these exposed springs might be authentic, they are unable to offer the correct support for a modern sprung mattress.

At The Odd Company we provide a shallow upholstered version of this base, which will correctly support the mattress and complete your antique bed, whilst retaining the traditional appearance and character you love.

Custom Antique Bed Base

Just like our mattresses, all of our bed bases can also be made to measure.

Antique beds were often made custom, meaning they come in all sizes. Because of this, if you have an antique bed frame you probably need a custom-made mattress that’s tailored to your bed frame dimensions.

If you have a typical antique bed with a low metal frame, you’ll need a sprung box base, otherwise the mattress will sit too low on the frame. We make sprung box bases to customer specification, depending on the size and style of your antique bed frame.


Quality Antique Bed Base Materials

All of our antique bed bases are made with high quality materials including a choice of either a cream cotton or traditional striped ticking for the upholstery. This means you can match the base to your room, or make it fit in with the colour or material of your mattress.

"I spent a lot of time checking the measurements of my bed and bed base. I was so impressed by Neil’s patience and knowledge. He guided me though and reassured me. When the bed base arrived it fitted like a glove and I was thrilled- plus , the turnaround was very very fast."


"The Odd Mattress continue to provide the best service and the most unbelievably comfortable beds in the UK. From order to making through to delivery, the whole experience was so professional. They provided top advice and delivered to central London up four floors bang on time and to perfection. We can't recommend the Odd Mattress Company more highly and in fact just ordered another!"

Mr. Clark
