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.



All of our items are made to order from FSC-Certified Wood. This listing is for a solid maple bed in the size of your choosing, finished with waterborne lacquer in the color of your choosing.

We finish these with an eco-friendly waterborne lacquer which has a satin sheen. It is a durable, cleanable finish. We can use any color from Benjamin Moore, so take your pick! (If you choose a custom color, please enter the color name and code into the order notes.)
