Description

PLATFORM BED No.1 IN SOLID MAHOGANY by WILBUR DAVIS STUDIOS

This bed is simple, elegant, and strong.  The square rails give the bed a lightweight appearance while maintaining a completely solid stance.  We designed this frame to come apart easily and move without a lot of fuss.   Once assembled though, it becomes clear that this is a piece that is here to stay.

For durability, we utilize mortise and tenon joinery in combination with bed bolt hardware.  The mortise and tenon is one of the oldest and strongest joints in a woodworking. We use this joinery technique throughout this bed, but many of the joints are permanently glued.   The exception to this is the rails.  Instead of gluing these in place, we utilize high-quality bed bolts for the 4 points where rails meet head or footboards.  These bolts lock the mortise and tenon in place with incredible strength, yet allow for easy disassembly when it’s time to move it.  Beds that don’t use bolts can loosen up over time, leading to a permanently wobbly bed.  This system of fastening stays perfectly tight and will serve you well for many years to come.

Our bed is built with robust poplar slats that nest into pocketed solid maple rails. Beds larger than twin are constructed with a solid maple mid beam to prevent sagging. The bed is designed for use without a foundation or box spring.

PLEASE NOTE: The bed photographed shows a plywood foundation. All new beds will be produced with a hardwood slat system.

Materials & Sustainability

All of our items are made to order from FSC-Certified Wood.

On our furniture pieces, we use 2 different eco-friendly finishes, depending on wood species.   On darker woods that benefit from a slightly amber tone we use a zero-VOC oil-wax finish (Rubio Monocoat).  On lighter color woods where a non-yellowing finish is preferable, we use a low-VOC waterborne lacquer (Agualente from ML Campbell).

Woods finished with Rubio Monocoat:

  • Walnut
  • Mahogany
  • Cherry
  • White Oak (upon request)

Woods Finished with ML Campbell Aqualente

  • Maple
  • Ash
  • Beech
  • White Oak (upon request)

    We’ve been searching for the “perfect” bed frame for the past quarter century (far more impressive than 25 years, right?) We’ve hit every specialty furniture store and crafts fair in New England. We came close a couple of times, but there was always some small detail that didn’t work for us. We first saw Kelly’s & Matthew’s work at a friend’s home and within weeks visited their studio. Following a couple of questions and outlining some particular criteria, we paid our deposit. Literally, this was the fastest decision we’ve made in our marriage – other than my decision to propose after four weeks. As soon as Kelly and Matthew finished installing the frame and we could see it in all it’s glory, surrounded by our furnishings, we knew we’d made the right decision. Trust me, you can’t go wrong. The craftsmanship is exceptional, the materials top-of-the-line, the attention to detail magnificent, and you’ll never work with two nicer, more genuine people.
