Kids Bedroom Funiture | Youth Bedroom Furniture | Children's Bedroom Furniture, Juvenile Bedroom Furniture - The Furniture Authority

Room to grow...

The Furniture Authority, a recognized leader in the US for top quality bedroom furniture and accessories, has partnered with 50 leading brands to offer a huge selection of kid's beds: children metal bunk beds, kid's solid wood bunk beds, kid's bunk beds that fuse a twin bed with a futon, and kid's bed frames. Nightstands and toy chests are offered to match many of these kid's beds. Most styles are offered in twin size and full size. Many of the bunk beds actually separate creating two distinct pieces of furniture.

Your child's room should be a haven of imagination. If should be bright, beautiful, and comfortable so that all of the castles, cars, fairies, and farm friends that are featured in books and captured in your child's heart can come to life with ease. Parents, help your child's dream come true by purchasing the ideal bed.

Today children's beds come in a variety of styles that include bunk, loft, canopy, sleigh, captains and daybeds. Beside the "cool factor" of kid's bunk beds, there are several practical benefits to choosing one for your child's bedroom. Whether it's one kid or two, bunk beds are a great space saver in any kid's room. They generally have storage (making them an economically wise choice), work well for sleepovers, and can stimulate the imagination as your child's bed becomes a pirate ship or dollhouse. Loft bunk beds are perfect for students. They feature a comfy bed up above and a desk, shelves and bookcase down below. They are great space savers too and work best for sleepovers and families with two or more children sharing a room.

Futon bunk beds feature a twin size bed on top and a full size futon on the bottom. The futon on the bottom can be converted from a full size bed to a couch, giving you great flexibility while maintaining ease of use. They also come in different styles and finishes (just change their covers to get new looks for your room). A daybed with an optional trundle drawer makes a handy extra sleeping space. Just pull the drawer out and put a mattress inside whenever you need an additional bed for sleepovers or overnight guests. Captain's kid's beds offer additional storage for clothes, toys and extra bedding with several spacious drawers. Your child's room will have a rich, elegant feel with a sleigh bed. A canopy bed, on the other hand, will lead your child into a world of fantasy to live his/her dreams. Expand these with a decorating theme - a race car, golden coach, sailor's private boat - and you have a winner on your hands.

When decorating a child's room, it can be difficult to make everything come together. Children's bedding sets can really help to set the tone for your child's bedroom. They are great for infants and for teenagers alike. They make it convenient to choose the style that you and your child like best. Children bedding sets are versatile. With reversible comforters, neutral sheet sets and a couple different accessories, a room can easily be changed as the interests of the child changes. A bedding set for your child will also be easy to clean and offers the child a chance to express his/her individuality with ease. Additionally, shopping for bedding is significantly easier, as the sets contain everything one needs and eliminates the need to match colors or styles. Today there are choices galore: character beddings, bed linen, accessories, quilt covers, curtains, wallpapers, borders, blankets, beach towels, rugs, wall clocks, alarm clocks, mirrors (Disney, Postman Pat, Cinderella, Winnie the Pooh, Bratz, Walt Disney, etc.) and more, depending on your budget and imagination.

Canopy Beds by The Furniture Authority

Canopy Beds by The Furniture Authority
When royalty, warmth is your preference!

The bed is the heart of the bedroom. It is an extension of your style. It is a place to rest, recuperate, romance, or recharge. Canopy beds could be just what you need to show the world your style. The canopy bed has four posts that are connected together at the top with rods. These can be draped with beautiful, stunning sheer fabrics to create an old-world charm of romance and grandeur. The Furniture Authority offers a unique range of top-quality canopy beds at incredible prices.

Canopy beds are stylish remnants of medieval functionality. Medieval ceilings were made of much less sturdy material than we have nowadays, including wood, clay tiles, and stone. Dirt, pebbles, insects, and various other droppings would often fall from the ceiling, so canopy beds were used in order to prevent these from falling onto a slumbering person. Royalty also used canopy beds, although they certainly did not need protection from falling debris. For royalty, the canopy beds offered warmth and privacy, as well as ceremonial importance.

Today's modern canopy beds in metal try to recreate the sense of style and romance with graceful swirls, exquisite craftsmanship, ornate curves on grills, bold shapes, carefully engineered framing systems, beautifully crafted headboards and footboards and more. Some of the canopy beds by The Furniture Authority are manufactured from genuine or plated brass, cast zinc or aluminum, and steel or iron, and are so solidly built that they can last generations.

The design options in wood canopy beds too have shown greater innovation to reflect serenity and style. Wood canopy beds with quality framing system, intricate woodwork, rich finishes and sheer drapes lend themselves well to the classic and traditional style. Canopy beds with a touch of gold and sensuous curves in inlaid wood seem to be quite the rage. Rich finishes, classic designs, striking grills and dramatic motifs recreate the grandeur for those who enjoy a dash of adventure and drama in everyday life.

Children can also enjoy the presence of a canopy bed. Little girls might enjoy a canopy bed with a white powder coat finish and pretty flowing drapes that will take them away into their own magical dream world. Canopy beds can be fitted with cartoon themes, pastel shades, or delicate lace drapes to add personal style that your child will love. A canopy bed in your child's room is sure to spark amazing imaginative possibilities that will leave you amazed and your child ecstatic.

Canopy beds come in different sizes, from Twin to Full to Queen to King to California King. Twin is also known as Single (38" x 75"), Full as Double (53" x 75"), Queen as Queen-size (60" x 80"), King as Eastern King (76" x 80") and Cal King as California King (72" x 84"). California King-size beds are typically 12" wider than a Queen-size bed and 4" longer (best for tall people).

The Furniture Authority has partnered with more than 50 leading brands in furniture manufacturing to offer you the best canopy beds in quality and price.
