Bed Frames

To complement our top quality organic mattresses, we offer sturdy and beautiful bed frames.

Local Hardwood Bed Frames

Our hardwood frames are handcrafted in Tompkins County from locally grown and milled cherry, walnut, ash and maple. Master furniture craftsman James Nagel hand selects the lumber for our custom frames, searching out extraordinary boards with beautiful grain patterns to feature in the headboards and footboards. Because our region is rich in hardwood tree species, local solid hardwood furniture is one luxury that is still sustainable. The sturdy 4" wide slats are made from select clear maple for optimum strength. Many of our frames are made from local ash, a species which is being rapidly harvested to minimize the spread of the invasive emerald ash borer. Frames can be ordered in the designs shown here, or we can customize your dream bed from your own design ideas or sketches. Wolff and Nagel can also consult with you on a design that will harmonize with your existing furniture. Each frame is elegantly designed by Elisabeth Bly Wolff & James Nagel for maximum ergonomic comfort, and solidly constructed to last for decades. Frames are finished with AFM Naturals Oil Wax finish (made with polymerized linseed oil, organic safflower oil and other plant-derived oils and waxes).

Upholstered Bed Frames

Made by Cisco Brothers using their unique Inside Green construction, these beds are built around certified sustainably-harvested harwood frames, and create a space of natural comfort using materials that include natural foam rubber (latex), domestic wool, jute, linen and organic cotton. Cisco Brothers has received awards for creating and sustaining good jobs in south central Los Angeles.

The Sweet Trees Bed

Made by Wolff & Nagel (Brooktondale, NY)

This gorgeous frame is made from local cherry, with a figured maple panel showcased in the headboard. Craftsman-style details include through-tenon joinery and tapered square legs, and elevate this piece to the realm of fine furniture. Maple and cherry call to mind the syrup of early spring and the fruit of summer - hence the name, "Sweet Trees". Customizations are welcome, e.g. you could opt for a solid headboard without the two "windows".

This handsome frame is made from local ash. Its elegant and modern design features a horizontally slatted headboard with (optional) circular cutouts, and subtly curved feet. Customizations are welcome.

The Minimalist Bed

This straightforward no-headboard design combines elegant simplicity with solid, durable construction. Made from local ash. When placed against a wall, we find that large pillows (like our kapok fill euro size pillows) make excellent back rests for reading, so a headboard is not always functionally necessary.

The Freeport Bed

The Aidden Bed
