  • Options & Customization

The delicately tapered octagonal posts of my pencil post bed are capped with finials (as shown). An optional 4 or 6 piece canopy frame with or without finials is also available. When you order your pencil post bed we'll ask for the thickness of your mattress and boxspring so we can adjust the height of the headboard accordingly. Sturdy angle iron brackets support your boxspring and mattress and knock down mortise and tenon joinery permits complete disassembly for UPS shipping. If you'll be using your pencil post bed with just a mattress or futon we will build the bed with a maple slat platform which provides excellent support while still allowing your mattress to breath. All king size beds include a fifth leg in the center for added support for split boxspings or slats. For more information on bed construction see my bed construction details page.

Guarantee: As with all my furniture, my pencil post bed comes with a lifetime guarantee to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship. (Guarantee does not apply in cases of abuse, misuse or neglect nor to normal wear and tear.) Also, if for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your pencil post bed you may return it within 30 days of delivery for a full refund of the purchase price. (We do not refund shipping costs and do not accept returns of customized beds. Returned beds must be in resellable condition.)

All beds are built to order so that the headboard can be placed at the correct height in relation to the top of your mattress. When we receive your order we will contact you to get the thickness of your mattress or mattress and box spring. If you will be purchasing a new mattress but haven't picked it out yet please don't let that keep you from ordering your bed now. We typically have an 8-10 week backlog so you'll have at least a few weeks to get your mattress dimensions to us. Placing your order right away will get your bed in our production schedule while you pick out a mattress. All types of mattresses can be used on our beds.
