You need a bed frame that functions. You'd like it to have a headboard so your pillows don't fall behind the bed, to get your mattress off the ground, and be structurally sound - no fuss, no muss. Well, the Greenfield is not only functional, it is built like a tank! This bed is designed by us and each one is built by hand by a single woodworker in Vermont. It is made of solid ash (think baseball bats) so it has some interesting grain patterns and has a double spine center support with inset slats. A solid base for your mattress.
