It's no secret that we love wood, after all, it's the material that we built our entire operation around. We do, however, think that we take extra steps to preserve and safeguard the organic beauty that his ever-evolving material offers and our Barn Wood Bed with Natural Slab is a perfect example of our leanings towards natural beauty stewardship.
A solid night's sleep
Let's start by taking a look at the frame. Strong and built to last, natural wood furniture doesn't get much more stoic and masterful than this. Designed to use 6" x 6" barnwood timber posts, this frame makes a statement in any bedroom and has been built to withstand years of happy use.
Rustic but not unapologetically so to the point where the bed would look out of place in a modern home, this is a wonderful representation of how adaptable reclaimed wood furniture can be, when it is left relatively untouched. The secret is all the history already ingrained in every post, plank, and slab.
Preserving valuable history
What makes our reclaimed wood and the furniture made from it, like this bed, so special? The fact that we are diligent when sourcing our material. Some furniture companies make do with 50-year-old timber that hasn't had the requisite amount of time to properly weather and patina, but we have patience and a keen eye. We seek out timber that is at least 100 years old and has served a meaningful purpose already. Every nick, rough sawn mark or nail hole is a glimpse into the past of this incredible material, which you can sleep on, proud to know that you are safeguarding a slice of American history, right there in your home.
The finishing touches
A rock-solid real wood furniture bed frame, crafted from reclaimed timber is special in its own right but our designers went one step further and introduced a hearty live edge slab into the mix as well, as a unique headboard. No two will ever be the same, though the quality and care put into each one will be identical.
Perfectly held between two reclaimed wooden posts, the slab showcases exactly why so many discerning customers fall in love with live edge furniture. It's responsive, warm and yearns to be touched and cared for, but never hidden. This is why we only apply a clear finish, to let Mother nature's art speak for itself and also why we handle the wood the old fashioned way, with time and thought. There's a place for modern techniques, but this bed requires a more holistic and natural touch.
Available in four sizes, from twin to king, each frame can take around eight weeks to complete before being shipped, free of charge within the USA. We are always looking for new ways to exceed customer expectations, so custom tweaks are never off the table and we are always ready to start a conversation about how to create the absolute best piece of furniture for every individual customer.
Now that's something that will guarantee a great night's sleep!
