NEW! Natural Wood Bed Frame
A NATURAL BED, LOVELY TO BEHOLD
Our Natural Wood Bed Frame is made exclusively for us by one of the nation's leading manufacturers of sustainable furniture. It proudly features reclaimed wood, eco-conscious materials and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Handmade in sunny California (yes, just like our Green and Vegan mattress), our Natural Wood Bed Frame features clean, modern lines that complement its vintage aesthetic. Consistent with our company values, we handcraft our furniture to meet the highest standards of safety and environmental responsibility.
GLORIOUS RECLAIMED WOOD
We rescue Douglas firfrom local sources in California, with all of its rich character, blemishes, and nail holes carefully smoothed and plainly on display. No MDF or particle board — just real, solid wood. The result is an heirloom-quality piece of furniture that is enhanced, never diminished, with life's little dings and scratches.
A GREENER CHOICE
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Natural Wood Bed Frame uses none of these materials.
As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Natural Wood Bed Frame is a step toward healthier, environmental-friendly living.
SOLID WOOD, NOT PARTICLE BOARD
The reclaimed wood utilized in our Natural Bed is solid, beautiful, and unique — and sourced from local sources in California. No trees are harmed in the manufacturing of our furniture, which in turn, helps to protect our natural resources, reduce waste (through reuse and building quality products that last), lessen our footprint, and promote sustainability.
OLD GROWTH DURABILITY
Much of our wood used is reclaimed from buildings constructed 50 to 100 years ago. Because it is mostly dense-grain, old-growth material, our reclaimed wood is harder and more durable than any new lumber. New lumber often contains sapwood, and as a result, is less dense (because it comes from younger trees), contains larger & looser knots, and exhibits a higher moisture content (making it more prone to warping, twisting and bending).
Because no trees are cut down or transported to a mill, wood waste from building is diverted from landfills. This also reduces emissions associated with the logging, transport, and processing of new wood, while helping to safeguard our natural resources. All of the woods used are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). It's also helpful to note that the use of reclaimed wood can earn points toward the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program — a nationally recognized rating system for sustainable building by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Shipping & Delivery
Our Natural Wood Bed Frame is handmade in Los Angeles. Shipping and delivery coordination requires approximately 10 days. The bed frame will ship crated and disassembled. White glove delivery and in-home setup is included within the continental United States only. Furniture is not currently available to ship to Alaska and Hawaii. White glove service does not include hauling away your old bed frame. Our shipping provider will contact you directly to schedule your delivery. At this time, furniture and mattress and/or bedding orders can not be coordinated to arrive at the same time.
Solid Wood Construction
Reclaimed (upcycled) solid vintage wood — much of it from old-growth Douglas fir ecosystems in Western North America — is sourced locally from the greater Los Angeles area, where it has been seasoned for decades. Woods slats (1.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide, also made from reclaimed wood) are left unfinished, and placed 3 inches apart along the rails. Wood that has been previously chemically-treated wood is never used. All of the wood used will exhibit the character of vintage wood, to include smoothed nail holes, natural patina, fine cracks, and other weathering. With unparalleled stability, the bed can easily support a foundation and mattress, or just an Avocado Green Mattress on its own (as is our preference, as shown on this page). No tools are required for assembly.
No traditional lacquers or varnishes are used, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong chemicals that can cause headaches, nausea and respiratory issues. Instead, our beds use a zero-VOC Ecos® WoodShield stain, which is organic, non-toxic and odor-free. It conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use), as well ASTMD-4236, specifically concerning oral toxicity, skin irritation and respiratory effects.
Safe, Odorless Glues
Our assembly utilizes Titebond® wood glues, which are safe and produce no harmful fumes. They meet the requirements of ASTM D4236 for safe use with arts and crafts, and have both been approved for indirect food contact.
Carbon Negative Production & Shipping
Avocado is a carbon negative business. That means we voluntarily offset more than 100% of our emissions, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
