Complete your organic bedroom with an El-Paso style wood bed frame made with a natural wood finish. These bed frames are handcrafted in New Mexico using only the finest materials:

1. Wood

Our El-Paso bedframes come in either maple or oak. The maple comes from Michigan, while the oak comes 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

Oftentimes, 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. 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
  • Contains no petroleum solvent thinners, metallic driers or VOCs
  • FDA approved for food contact

Odour - since Tried and True Danish oil is linseed oil based (derived from the seeds of the flax plant), there's a slight odour initially that dissipates 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 of the bed frame (from the ground to the base of the slats) is 11.5" and the headboard (ground to the top of the headboard) is 35"

  • 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 the types of toxic glues, laminates, and finishes that are often found in conventional bed frames. 

Superior form, superior function, superior strength.


  • If you're looking for a more distinctive footboard (such as what is shown here) simply indicate that you would like a matching footboard. This adds an extra crosspiece, as well as an extra 7" in height, to any standard footboard. The footboard and headboard will match in appearance
  • Need under the bed storage space? Consider adding a separately attached set of drawers. These drawers have a maple/oak front, sides, and a poplar backing. They have rollers for easy access from under the beds. Great for kids bedrooms! Two in a set.
