Our Modern Shaker Bed is distinctly modern, as the name suggests, yet unmistakably warm. Characterized by clean lines, the bed is in perfect union with the strength and beauty of natural woods. Designed with a low profile and a shaker tape headboard, this bed is truly unique.
Our Modern Shaker Bed is a platform bed and does not require a boxspring. Available in rift-sawn oak, walnut and cherry. An original Chilton design, made in Maine.

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.
