The Penobscot collection is named after the great river that runs through the center of Maine and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Before dams were placed on the river, ocean ships could travel all the way inland to Bangor, which was the lumber export capital of the world in the 1800's, to pick up their wooden cargo. There were so many boats in the river it is said you could walk from deck to deck to cross between the two cities of Bangor and Brewer.

Built to Order
Standard build times are approximately 12-14 weeks, plus delivery.
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.

"The delivery service was wonderful. All the furniture was wrapped to protect it from any damage. Al and Jason did a great job unwrapping and carefully assembled and set everything up where we wanted it ... They did a great clean up afterwards. They made sure that we were happy with the furniture and its positioning before they would leave. Thank you!"- Tom & Cathy K.
