Our Natural Wood Bed Frame is made exclusively for us by one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of sustainable furniture. It proudly features reclaimed wood, eco-conscious materials and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Handmade in sunny California (yes, just like our Green and Vegan mattress), our Natural Wood Bed Frame features clean, modern lines that complement its vintage aesthetic. It complements healthy lifestyles and promotes the larger sustainability values that are of paramount importance to us all.
Solid Douglas Fir is “rescued” from local sources in California, with all of its rich character, blemishes and nail holes carefully smoothed and plainly on display. No MDF or particle board is used. The result is an heirloom-quality piece of furniture that is enhanced, never diminished, with life’s little dings and scratches.
A Greener Choice
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board that are commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Natural Wood Bed Frame uses none of these materials.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Natural Wood Bed Frame is a step in the right direction toward healthy, environmental-friendly living.
Solid Wood, Not Particle Board
The reclaimed wood used in our Natural Bed is solid, beautiful and unique, sourced from local sources in California. No trees are harmed in the manufacturing of our furniture, which in turn, helps to protect our natural resources, reduce waste (through reuse and building quality products that last) and promote sustainability.
Old Growth Durability
Much of our wood used is reclaimed from buildings that were built 50 to 100 years ago. Because it is mostly dense-grain, old-growth material, our reclaimed wood is harder and more durable than any new lumber. New lumber often contains sapwood, and as a result, is less dense (because it comes from younger trees), contains larger & looser knots, and exhibits a higher moisture content (making it more prone to warping, twisting and bending).
Because no trees are cut down or transported to a mill, wood waste from building is diverted from landfills. This also reduces emissions associated with the logging, transport and processing of new wood, while helping to safeguard our natural resources. All of the woods used are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). It is also helpful to note that the use of reclaimed wood can earn points toward The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program — a nationally recognized rating system for sustainable building by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
