Antique Rope Beds
Rope beds became a staple until the 19th century in America. In a rope bed, ropes created a
criss-cross support system for these hay and straw mattresses. Thus, they spawned the phrase
"sleep tight," because rope beds always needed tightening. A period rope bed will have pegs
on both the side rails, as well as on the footboard and headboard
