Our Waverly Platform Bed has been a favorite for many years. The construction of our platform beds is accomplished by bolting the side rails to the posts. No stronger system exists.
Like all of our beds, our Waverly platform bed is available in any size from a twin, full, or queen size all the way up to a king or California king.
At our workshop we use only select hardwoods that are from local, sustainable sources; these include maple, cherry, and walnut.
The mattress rests on a sturdy array of hardwood slats supported in the center by a central leg and beam. There is no need for a box spring or foundation.
Our goal is crafting heirloom quality furniture. From our study of traditional methods we know that a solid mortise and tenon, bolted construction will enable our bed frames to endure for generations. We believe that they can last for the lifetime of the wood itself, which can be hundreds of years if preserved properly.
We know from experience that one major reason that a bed frame becomes unusable is that the owner loses the hardware for assembling the bed. This often happens in moving. To address this issue we decided years ago to use only hardware that could be easily obtained from a well stocked hardware store. We do not use specialty hardware, specific only to the furniture industry, which might prove difficult to replace when lost.
The Waverly Platform Bed is crafted in our Brooklyn Workshop. Please visit our showroom located at 137 Varick St in New York City or call us at 212 620 4682.
