Anyone know the brand/style/era of this bed/dresser set?

I picked these up at a local thrift store for $30/each. I’m going to attempt to refinish them or chalk paint them but my curiosity can’t stop wondering about these! I wish I knew more about them. And ive had these for weeks and can’t decide what I should do to them. So any suggestions would be great too! I keep trying to look up ideas but I have no clue what this style is called or anything. So any help would be fantastic!!! And my garage is a mess I know. 😔 oh and also they only had two of the bed post finials and I’m wondering how I could replace them or get something similar or what I have no clue.


Thanks for your help!!

    I think it’s a pineapple headboard - here’s a little history for you:

    I believe that style is French provincial with pineapple finials. Look for any markings on the piece. If you find a letter, number or image, try to Google it. This will help you to pinpoint the Era. Sometimes it's difficult to differentiate an antique from a mid-century reproduction. They will both be made of good wood. The devil is in the details.

    It's hard to tell from the picture. These pieces look to be from a bedroom suite that was popular in the 90's. The dark wood and stylized Victorian look in oversized furniture was very popular then. You certainly got a very good bargain. To reduce the amount of prep work, you might want to try a chalk paint in a lighter color, and then apply a darker coat of wax to seal it and highlight the carving. Talk to anyone that sells chalk paint. They often have sample boards to show the finished look.

    No, it is not French Provincial style. FP does not have pineapple motifs and has borders and posts that are more delicate.

    Victorian styling with Tropical twist- should have Pineapples or Knobs on the top (Wood or Brass).

      It would say Thomasville some where on it if it is Thomasville made. Also, Thomasville closed it's doors back in that era because they could get the furniture made cheaper in China and avoid the shipping cost. It may still say Thomasville, but it was not made in Thomasville. That is my home town and now it is almost a ghost town. If you think it is Thomasville made, please check the history behind the Thomasville Furniture Company. Just to let you know some history. Good Luck.

    It could be in the late 60's or 70's but then could be later. I have my headboard which is rather antique and bought it new in the 60's. Your pieces are very beautful.

    it's colonial plantation style....the pineapple is a welcoming symbol of hospitality. common in british territory islands.

    unless it was redone.looks like a reproduction of a Federalist era type. It is definitely not French Provincial. Federalist furiiture was very ornate think Lincoln era but doubtful it is an original. Looks in too good shape

    Hi Heather:

    It looks like teak or mahogany furniture I have seen in antique malls before that came from British territory islands. Looks like you really got a bargain. You could remove most of the ornate carvings on top of the fluted part of the columns on either side of the headboard, and maybe just keep the ball portion. Of course this would make it shorter, but could be a simpler look.
    Nice find.

    OMG... Check out this link!!
    You could email Tracey and she'd be able to give you more info!!!
    This bed is her most requested piece! (Almost exact, but yours may be better!) And you'd have a great idea for what to do with it!
