The design of the Sheraton Field Bed was introduced towards the end of the 18th Century, is largely attributed to Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite, two English craftsmen who published pattern books during the second half of the 18th Century. Their books, which made their way to colonial America, acted as design references for the many cabinetmakers throughout New England and beyond.
