Shaker style, handmade solid cherry wood bed, with arched top and tapered legs, from Maine's Chilton Furniture Co.
Classically styled bedroom with Shaker cherry wood bedroom collection from Maine's Chilton Furniture Co.

Shaker Arch Bed

Regular price $ 2,015.00


Chilton's modern version of a classic Shaker design. Built to stand the test of time; this Shaker style wood bed is as solid as Mount Katahdin's granite.  This bed can be made as a standard bed which accommodates a box spring and mattress or as a platform bed which only needs a mattress. Your choice. Crafted in Maine.

Chilton was once again honored to be able to showcase our furniture in an episode of the National TV series Tree House Masters as seen on Animal Planet.  This project was close to home as a they built a beautiful lake side tree house in Monmouth, Maine.  This project featured two of our solid wood beds, the Penobscot Sleigh bed and the Shaker Arch Shaker inspired bed.  We are hoping they are providing a restful night sleep after a day of play and adventure in the canopy of the forest. You can see the full 2018 episode here.

Shown in solid cherry. Also available in maple, walnut, white oak, and quarter-sawn white oak.

Conventional: This bed accommodates a standard mattress and foundation and includes 5 hardwood slats each 5"W x 3/4"D and 3 center support legs.

Platform: This bed only requires a mattress. 18 poplar slats, each 2.5" wide, run horizontally across the bed, spaced 1.5" apart. An additional center rail runs head to toe for added support. 

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

Our Shaker furniture pieces are currently at an unusually high build time of 16-20 weeks due to high demand, as well as social distancing requirements in the building process. We are taking steps to accelerate that timing, but please count on this time frame to be conservative.
SKU: SHAKERARCH

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.

"The delivery service was wonderful. All the furniture was wrapped to protect it from any damage. Chris and Chad 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.

I am pleased that I went with Chilton Furniture. I went to the showroom because I was hesitant to buy without seeing the piece. It is beautiful. The delivery was great My only concern was that the bed did not have any "gliders" on the legs. (Scratchy floors) I would recommend Chilton

This is such a beautiful, simple, design, exactly what I was hoping for. It works with previously purchased dressers perfectly, and I should have done this 10 years ago! Delivery people also were efficient and neat... very happy with the bed.

John L

Excellent craftsmanship with the simplicity and beauty we were looking for. Extremely well put together with all pieces fitting precisely at the time the bed was assembled.

Robert W

Its gorgeous! I LOVE your furniture - simple, beautiful. Appears to be very well made.

Thank you for your kind words! :) Enjoy your new bed and hope to see you back soon. Chilton Furniture Co.

We recently ordered two shaker beds. The first bed, in all cherry, is perfect. The wood selected for the headboard are well matched and the cherry nicely figured. It is already darkening a bit and is a lovely color. For the second shaker bed, we ordered a bird's eye maple headboard with a cherry frame. This bed is outstanding. Again, the bird's eye wood in the headboard is well matched and looks fantastic. The folks at Chilton's were wonderful. We picked up our own bed frame and staff helped us load our truck and properly care for the bed frame pieces. Overall, we will continue to buy from Chilton's and recommend their products to all!
