Acadia Live Edge Bed (Cherry)

Regular price $ 1,575.00

Chilton's Acadia Collection is crafted in Maine from solid cherry, walnut or spalted maple. Each piece features clean minimalist lines with a contrasting unfinished edge from the bark line of the tree. This raw "live edge" ensures that each piece is both dynamic and unique.

Inspired by George Nakashima, this bed marries a modern aesthetic with a reverence for the tree from which it was hewn. Also available as a stand-alone frame without headboard. Headboard height and shape vary from piece to piece based on the individual characteristics of the wood. This bed is a platform bed that only requires a mattress.  A foundation is not necessary.

Chilton is honored to have had its Acadia Live Edge Bed featured on the cover of the annual edition of artmaine. magazine.  Chilton is also honored to have provided its Acadia bedroom furniture for the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired tree-house featured on Animal Planet's Treehouse Masters, which you can read more about here.

Product Details:

Platform consists of 12 hardwood slats 4-3/4" wide by 3/4" thick.  They are spaced 1-1/2" apart, separated by wood spacers. Distance measurement is consistent with major mattress warranty standards.

Please note that when your new cherry wood furniture arrives, it may be lighter in color than the wood shown in the accompanying photo.  New cherry wood is initially a pale, straw color and gradually darkens to a beautiful amber over time with exposure to light.

Built to Order

Standard build times are 10-12 weeks. Due to high demand, we are currently experiencing higher build times for this piece. You will currently find our shortest lead times on our Penobscot and Bethel collections.

Platform vs. Standard Bed Frame

A Standard bed frame typically comes with 3-5 "slats", or pieces of wood that lay across the side rails of the bed frame. These slats are designed to hold a traditional box spring, or foundation, which sits under a mattress to provide support.

A Platform bed has either plywood or sufficient slats running down the length of the bed frame to directly support a mattress without the need for a box spring.

Platform beds typically cost a little more than Standard ones, but they avoid the need to purchase a box spring and allow for a more modern, lower profile look.

This is a beautiful headboard and we were allowed the option of selecting the headboard built for us or the floor model. We chose the latter. Since these pieces each have their own patterns and are a conspicuous focal point of any bedroom, it may be important for some buyers to have more options but I don't believe that is possible under the current arrangement. Also, studying the construction of the frame, it would appear that more options should be available to better accommodate different foundations if desired (we have a power foundation we would not want to be without).

This is a wonderful company! Have had two of the live edge beds delivered to Florida. They do a fantastic job in delivering and setting up. Have both the Cherry and Walnut. Both beautiful.

The cherry Edge bed is beautiful and has a very different look. I am elated to find a company where the product is made in New England. Chilton is such a professional company.

Our live edge bed is absolutely beautiful! We are very happy with the solid, quality construction. Chilton Furniture is a great company, and we will be repeat customers, even though it took a bit longer to make our bed than projected. So happy with our purchase. This bed is built so well it will last way longer than we will.

April, So glad to hear that you are happy with your new bed! We are sorry it took a little longer than you expected--we try to be conservative with our estimates but that bed has been particularly popular. Please enjoy it in good health for years to come and we hope to see you back soon. Warmest regards, Chilton Furniture Co.

Jeff C

A beautiful piece of furniture that matches well with the chest of drawers and end table. One drawer sticks a bit but customer service has been helpful.

Jeff, Thank you for the kind words and we are glad you like your new bed. It sounds from your message that you were able to resolve that sticky drawer but if not, please let us know and we will get it resolved. Thank you again and very best, Chilton Furniture Co.


The bed is in our guest room, and a number of family & friends have used it since it was delivered. All have complimented us on the purchase, especially on how comfortable it is.
