Quick OverviewThe Gustavian bed is hand-planed to smooth its finish while keeping the distinctive appeal of the vintage fir's knots, nail holes and weathering scars.
About 250 years ago, Sweden's King Gustav visited France and returned with a passion for ornate French neoclassical design. Swedish woodworkers tossed out the frou-frou but wisely kept the striking and unusual arched, scalloped furniture silhouettes. Our reclaimed Douglas fir Gustavian headboard adds a contemporary green twist and honors the character of the rare first-growth fir used in its construction.
Up to a century old, the rich hue, deep patina and tight grain of the wood - from razed buildings - simply cannot be duplicated in new timber. Our bed is hand-planed to smooth its finish while preserving the distinctive textural appeal of the fir's knots, nail holes and weathering scars. Its light water-based stain, and hard oil wax, both eco-friendly, highlight the fir's singular beauty.
If you wish to use as a platform bed (without a box spring) please add the platform converter kit to your order. Platform slats are custom made for your bed and must be ordered at the same time. Includes headboard and bed frame. Assembly required. Made in USA.

- Eco Info
An estimated 25% of municipal waste consists of wood from both construction and demolition. Hardwoods that could be used to make furniture are being disposed of in landfills in the US, while deforestation happens in other parts of the world in order to make furniture to export to the US. This American-made vintage Douglas fir piece not only uses reclaimed wood it's US-origin means fewer resources are used in it's transportation. Only water-based stains and formaldehyde free glues are used in it's manufacture.
