ULTRA LOW PROFILE PLATFORM BED by WILBUR DAVIS STUDIOS
This ultra low platform bed is designed to keep the bed height to an absolute minimum, while also keeping the mattress off the floor and allowing adequate airflow. The piece functions wonderfully in a finished attic space or other room with low ceilings, or any space where a low profile bed is desirable.
Like our other beds, we designed it with strong joinery and a clean simple appearance. 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. To accomplish this, 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.
SUSTAINABILITY AND MATERIALS
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.)
The ultra low platform bed uses the same joinery system as our other platform beds. See how easy it is to assemble here in this video of Platform Bed No. 1:
