All told, we spend a good portion of our lives in bed—it’s where we recharge. It is our quiet space to heal both body and mind through rest and relaxation. A place to reset from a long day, to dream, to read, to think, to make love, and to find solace. When you start to think about it, we spend some of the most intimate and important moments of life in our bed.
When we get a good night sleep we often feel rejuvenated, happier, and function better throughout the day. The power of sleep is universal, it is at the core of our being and one of the few absolute necessities of life.
That is why we believe in the power of honoring that space with a solid framework. We have worked tirelessly designing and building several different bed frames, tweaking and perfecting, each time trying to come closer to a design we are proud of. Our guidelines have been the following: A frame that is built solid but lightweight enough to move if needed, sturdy when assembled yet easy to disassemble by hand without tools, that supports the body evenly yet uses the least amount of parts possible, that is made with responsibly sourced materials and no harmful chemical finishes, and a design that’s made with sacred proportional geometry so that the frame will withstand trends of the time and go beyond to impart a timelessness that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Materials: Currently we are offering the Grdlok bed in Ash wood. We chose Ash wood because it is a beautiful hardwood grown locally in New York, where currently thousands of Ash trees are dying due to an infestation of Emerald Ash Borer beetles. Rather than allowing these trees to go into landfills, or become mulch or firewood, we respect their beauty by giving them a lasting second chance.
