Burnette Bed

Regular price $ 2,005.00


Our Shaker style Burnette bed offers a classic spindle bed form with a low profile and clean lines to reflect a modern minimalist sensibility. Vertical spindles pierce the graceful, curved head and footboards using classic mortise and tenon construction, and are split and pegged with contrasting wood wedges. 

Shown in solid cherry and solid walnut. Also available in maple.

Please note, this is a handmade bed crafted by the original artisan in Mid-coast Maine, and typically has longer lead times.  Please see latest estimates below.

Other Bed Dimensions
Rails - 5 1/2"H x 1 1/4"D
Slat Height is 11 1/2" off floor and 4 1/2" deep on rail (where bed foundation will rest)

This bed is a platform bed that only requires a mattress. A foundation is not necessary. Platform consists of 20 hardwood slats on queen and kings. They are 2-1/4" wide by 3/4" thick.  They are spaced 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.

Standard build times are 5-6 months.
SKU: BURNETTEBED

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.

This bed is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully made. It also matches my very old but still modern Charles Webb oak furniture. This was a terrific investment.

An amazing bed, beautifully crafted!

We have had very good experiences with Chilton Furniture. We absolutely love the design and quality of their furniture. It is especially gratifying to know that they are products of the USA and made locally. The showrooms are lovely and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. This includes the sales staff and the delivery personnel. We ordered several pieces of furniture via both showroom and phone order. Because the furniture is locally crafted and not mass produced, we did not mind waiting for our furniture to be delivered. We own the Burnette queen bed, Shaker lateral file and Shaker writing desk. We are very happy with our Chilton quality furniture!

Ted S

This bed is a work of art as well as a sturdy bed. The spindles are slightly tapered and thin which gives the bed a delicate look but when assembled it is as sturdy as the rocks on the Maine coast.

Ted, It warms our hearts to read your review of our Burnette bed, not just because we love it so much as well, but also because we are so fond of the builder who makes it. He is a true artisan working in a one-man shop and we will be sure to pass along your kind words! Thank you, Chilton Furniture Co.

Jim V

This is a well-made bed of a simple, yet beautiful design. I've used it every night for more than two years and it has held up remarkably well, with no issues at all. The mattress-only configuration has been comfortable, so I don't miss having a box spring.
