When you buy a piece of furniture from Maple Corner, you are buying a collectible. This bed is handcrafted in VT by highly skilled artisans that are dedicated to making the highest quality solid wood furniture. The pared down Shaker styling of this bed features complimentary arches to the head and footboards as well as four-sided tapered corner posts with chamfered edges, cradling the sleeper in a moon shaped embrace. The components are well proportioned for a delicate yet sturdy appearance. It is constructed from select wide cherry boards (no sap streaks or pin holes here!) responsibly harvested in Pennsylvania that are color and grain matched creating a seamless look. Then it's finished with a hand rubbed non-toxic, zero VOC Danish oil which allows the heartwood cherry to get to its deepest russet patina.
