The bed is the foundation of your sleep. It must provide a healthy (metal free, natural oil finish) and solid base on which the whole system can rely upon.
No metal : just plain massive wood
First and foremost, our beds are made without metal. No metallic frames, no nails, no screws just plain massive wood. Metal is conductor and acts like antenna for all the electrosmog that surrounds us. It is not something one wants to sleep with night after night.
The assembly is made out of traditional proven methods such as dovetail joints.
That traditional assembly has the the additional advantage to be easy to disassemble and reassemble. Our beds are therefore easy to move. They will resist the test of time even through numerous moves.
No varnish : just plain natural oil
Wood takes all its magnificence when properly finished. Finition ought to be natural, let wood breath and must not pollute your bedroom with any kind of volatile organic compound (VOC).
Natural oil finish, based on linseed oil is environmentally friendly and emits no chemical emissions. It gives an overall organic look and rich patina appearance. It has fantastic effects on solid wood.
