River House Guest Room Bed updates the traditional spool bed

The new River House Collection of home furnishings by Paula Deen Home for Universal Furniture captures the beauty, history and hospitality of life on the Savannah River. Designed to be loved and enjoyed, River House furniture has a timeless design and is well suited to the bustling activities of today’s busy families.

One versatile piece in this new collection is the Guest Room Bed, which comes in both King and Queen sizes. Constructed of metal, this bed simulates the spool-style design of the traditional wooden Jenny Lind bed. Jenny Lind, the Swedish opera singer known as the “Swedish Nightingale,” was one of the most popular singers of the 19th century. She made a concert tour of America beginning in 1850, and legend has it that the “Jenny Lind bed” was the sort of spool-turned bed that Miss Lind slept in while on her American tour.

This updated version of a spool-turned bed has a dark brown River Bank finish, and a matching Bobbin Side Table is also available.
