Complete your organic bedroom with a 4 poster solid wood bed frame made with a natural wood finish. These bed frames are handcrafted in New Mexico using only the finest and simplest materials:

1. Wood

Our bedframes come in either a maple or an oak. The maple comes from Michigan, while the oak from the US north-east

  • The wood is truly untreated, not even exposed to any fungicides when initially cut 
  • The wood travels to New Mexico, where its pieces are assembled by hand

2. Slats

Often times, conventional beds use laminated slats to support the mattress. The lamination used to the seal the wood can contain harmful toxic chemicals. On the contrary, our slats are made with poplar woodnever treated with a laminate. 

  • Each wooden slat is 3" apart from the next slat. Natural rubber mattresses require a maximum 2.75" space between each supporting wood slat to properly support it- we advise you purchase an extra set of poplar sets if you sleep on a natural rubber mattress.
  • Each slat is 2" Thick

3. Headboard

Decide between either Mission (3" wide slat) or Sandia (dowels) style

3. Finish

Select 'Untreated' or

'Treated' - i.e., to finish the wood, we use Tried and True Danish oil.

This oil finish:

  • Requires no chemical dryers
  • Beautifully exposes the grain of the wood
  • NO petroleum solvent thinners
  • NO metallic driers
  • NO VOCs
  • FDA approved for food contact

Odour - since Tried and True Danish oil is based in linseed oil (derived from the seeds of the flax plant), there will be a low odour initially that will dissipate quickly.

But is it safe? 

"According to their MSDS, HMIS health rating is 1, which is low. Exposure limit is none. Can’t get any better than that!" according to toxic exposure consumer advocate Debra Lynn Dadd

4. Assembly

The Regular height for the bed frame (from the ground to base of the slats) is 11.5"

  • Option to add 3 inches to elevate the bedframe (total height from the ground to base of slats will be 14.5")

There are no glue ledgers used to assemble our beds. The pieces are fastened using metal hardware, to avoid the use of toxic glues or chemical fasteners.

These four elements come together to form a superior bed frame- ideal for those with chemical sensitivities to toxic glues, laminates and finishes often found in conventional bed frames. 

Superior form, superior function, superior strength.

Add-ons:

  • If you are looking for a more distinctive foot board, such as what is shown here, simply indicate that you would like a matching foot board. This adds an extra crosspiece, as well as an extra 7" in height, to any standard foot board. The foot board and headboard will then match in appearance.
  • Need underb the bed storage space? Consider adding a set of drawers, such as the ones seen here. These drawers have a maple/oak front and sides and a poplar backing. They have 4 wheels that allow them to roll smoothly under any of our bed frames. Great for kids bedrooms! 2 in a set.
