English term or phrase: Sleigh bed
Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleigh_bed

A sleigh bed is a style of bed with curved or scrolled foot and headboards, thus resembling a sled or sleigh. Often made of wood and quite heavy, the sleigh bed is a result of the French and American Empire period of the early 1800s. The Empire style drew its inspiration from the empires of ancient Rome and Greece.
