Inspired by the Shakers' rope beds, this bed is also available with a high footboard. While originally designed for use with a standard mattress, this bed can be modified to take a futon or boxspring and mattress set. When you order your bed we'll ask for the thickness of your mattress or mattress and boxspring and adjust the bed accordingly. For more information on bed construction see my bed construction details page.

Bed Height: Overall bed height will depend on the thickness of your mattress (or mattress & boxspring). We will place the bottom of the headboard 2" above the top of your mattress. The height to the top of the headboard will be 17" above the top of your mattress for twin, full, and queen beds and 19" above the top of the mattress for king and California king beds.

The inside dimensions of the bed frame are 1" longer and wider than the standard mattress size to allow for bedding.

Low post beds are available in these standard woods:

  • Cherry
  • Maple
  • Walnut +$450

The base price for this bed is for either cherry or maple and includes a slatted hardwood platform for your mattress. No box spring is required. If you would prefer to use a box spring we can supply angle iron supports rather than slats. King size beds also include a center support beam and post.
The following optional items are also available:

  • Center support beam and post for full or queen beds +$150

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 12-16 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.
