It is not really surprising that a search for the best North Shore bedroom set for sale on Amazon would yield some slim pickings. The “North Shore” style refers to a collection of Ashley Home Store that features delicately carved wood headboards and cedar-lined drawers. Here are five North Shore bedroom set reviews for the few pieces that are on offer on Amazon, all from Ashley Furniture.
Ashley North Shore Canopy Bedroom Set
Unsurprisingly, this is the best North Shore canopy bedroom set on the list, but it is truly a set. The king-sized bed has a carved headboard with leather inlays and four tall wood posts with a metal canopy. It also includes a nightstand and dresser with mirror. It does not include the required box spring mattress, so its price tag is a bit steep, even accounting for free shipping. There are other, cheaper alternatives. Be prepared to need help in setting this up because they are really heavy. It also makes a large bedroom look small, and requires a high ceiling. If you have the money and really like the look, you can leave behind the fully assembled mattress box foundation. You can’t go wrong with this one.
Ashley North Shore King Canopy Bed in Dark Wood
This one is not a set yet (you can get the set for an additional cost), but it is a true North Shore design from Ashley. This has an upholstered headboard and removable canopy. Like the one above, it is extremely heavy and nearly impossible to move once it is assembled.
There is some question about the quality control over the wood used,; there are some claims that the grand spiral posts started to split within a year. The company does take back defective products but it may entail some effort to get it done. It looks nice, but we would not recommend this bed because of the price. This listing does not include the mattress.
North Shore Sleigh Bedroom Set
This is in the tradition of the North Shore signature design, but it is called a sleigh bed because it is in the shape of a sleigh. Also known as a North Shore B553, the North Shore sleigh bedroom set features a bed with no posts or canopy, which may actually be good for a medium-sized bedroom with a low ceiling. Instead, it has an elegantly-carved foot board. You can get just the bed (no mattress), or you can get the set which includes the nightstand, dresser, and mirror. We would recommend the bed only which already sets the tone of the bedroom without the additional costs associated with the other pieces.
Old World Queen Bed in Dark Casual Finish
We are not certain why this is not listed as a sleigh bed as it is identical to the Sleigh Bed in the previous review. The price is also a bit of a mystery until you do the math and it is a reasonable facsimile of the price for the king-sized bed above if you account for the size difference. Very slick. In any case, this Ashley creation is again just the bed with no mattress, made of dark wood and elegantly carved. This is recommended as well if you want a smaller bed to impart the elegance of the North Shore looks to your bedroom.
Much like the Sleigh Bedroom Set the Ashley Furniture North Shore Panel Bedroom Set has the decorative crown and beautiful carvings. The high headboard gives the bed a luxurious look. Furniture Barrel has the Millennium North Shore Panel Bedroom Set available for the Queen Bed, Nightstand, Dresser and Mirror. Add other pieces to suit your bedroom needs.
North Shore Panel Headboard King
If you really just like the North Shore look but already have a perfectly good bed, you may want to consider just getting the headboard to get a North Shore Panel Bed. This listing is for a California King- sized bed, but it is also available for a queen-sized bed. It is made of the same opulent dark brown wood with the signature decorative pilasters and appliqués of the North Shore style. However, the price is a bit steep to pay for a headboard. You may want to consider getting an entire bed for a couple of hundred more.
