I want to get into some of the perks of bamboo furniture for a minute, so feel free to click here and skip ahead to get to the good stuff!
Benefits of a Bamboo Beds
If you're on the hunt for bamboo beds, I would bet you're already pretty familiar with bamboo's myriad benefits. For the uninitiated, or those of you considering a faux bamboo bed, let's quickly sum up the big two:
Bamboo Is Ridiculously Durable
If you're around "that age," you've probably grown tired of hearing that "things just aren't made the way they used to be." Actually, I sort of get that... Maybe I'm getting old too!?
Let's go back quickly. 50 years ago the average piece of lumber came from a tree that was at least 4-5 decades old, and a 2x4 was actually, you know... 2-inches by 4-inches. My '58 Mid-century modern house had legit lumber - a full 4-inches by 6-inches used for the rafters!
Nowadays, the average piece of lumber is cut from a tree roughly 2 decades old, and don't get me started on "nominal" dimensions! #NominalIsShortForWhatItShouldBe #ButNotWhatItIs
As any old-school contractor will tell you, wood just isn't the same as it used to be. So, bamboo is unique in that it grows faster and can be harvested substantially more often without compromising the quality of the lumber. AND bamboo is still 20-100% harder than Oak. So harder, more durable wood - faster. Not bad!
Bamboo is Eco-Friendly
Aside from the above mentioned fact that bamboo is viable for harvest way sooner than typical hardwoods, bamboo is also great for the planet even before it's harvested. Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than comparable tree stands, and our manufacturer uses 100% of the wood.
So, even before it's harvested and transformed into one of our modern bamboo beds, you're choosing a material that's providing a net positive for the environment.
Bamboo has more benefits, but I think we've covered the major advantages worth pointing out. If you're interested in our complete line, you can check out more about bamboo furniture.
Now let's get to our Top 10 Bamboo Beds!
Every one of these bamboo beds is crafted from 100% solid Moso bamboo, including the slat support systems. Additionally, every one is platform style, so there's no need for a boxspring. And, they all include free shipping!
One of our newest bed frames! Create a casual and sophisticated look with Greenington's Santa Cruz Modern Bamboo Platform Bed. The sleek modern design and simple clean lines of the Santa Cruz platform bed features a craftsman-built frame in solid Wheat bamboo, with two removable back cushions adding a dramatic focal point to the headboard, angled for good looks and comfortable lounging.
One of the newest and most popular additions to our collection, Mercury blends a solid Moso bamboo frame with a gray upholstered tufted headboard. We think the results speak for themselves!
Mercury's low-profile lines, angled legs, and rich brown finish all speak to interior design elements of the 50's and 60's. Horizontal tufting gives Mercury a softer side that's sometimes missing in hardwood beds. The included slat system enables you to pair Mercury with your favorite mattress, and upgrade your bedroom in style!
Mindfully manufactured with sustainable solid bamboo, Scarlett features a stunning silhouette, splayed legs, and an amber color that lends an earthen feel to your room. Scarlett is supported by a European slat system, which allows you to pair it with any standard innerspring or foam mattress, without a boxspring.
The most popular of our bamboo platform beds (hey, we sell modern furniture!), Azara boasts stunning construction elements from top to bottom!
Curved in all the right places, Azara's tapered lines provide a clean modern look that pairs perfectly with the slatted headboard and angled legs. Azara features a Tiger accent on the headboard, with is subtle or striking depending on which finish you choose. Regardless, it's pretty easy to see why Azara is one of our best selling bed frames!
Looking for a bed that celebrates the natural beauty of wood? The Ventura Bed is perfect for you! This bed is made from solid Amber bamboo, which features a rich variety of colors. The modern style and simple clean lines of the Ventura platform bed show off the grain of the bamboo perfectly. The expert construction features a craftsman-built frame in solid sustainable bamboo, and the smooth detail where the headboard and footboard meet the frame is especially stunning. You'll love the way this bed looks in your bedroom!
Our Currant Bed takes the slatted bed concept in a whole new direction, adding graceful curves to the classic shape.
Currant carries the curved theme to each piece of the bed, from the rounded footboard to the contoured side rails. Supported by angled legs, you've got a stunning bed that's at home in any decor, from transitional to contemporary. Available in Caramelized or Oiled Walnut stains, you're sure to love Currant.
Sienna is the OG of our bamboo collection, and was my personal favorite until the Mercury came along. Like the Currant, Sienna puts a bold twist on the traditional, and re-imagines the classic slatted bed as something more.
Sienna makes small elements beautiful: adding a slight angle and taper to the legs, beveling the side rails, and spacing out the slatted headboard. Each twist gives Sienna the bona fides of traditional style elements with the updated look of today. Available in several finish options, you can go classic caramelized or dark mocha to complete your dream bedroom!
Winona Bamboo Bed
When you picture a bamboo bed, we're pretty sure you see something like Winona in your mind's eye! Winona is the prototypical bed, placing just the right amount of emphasis on the beauty of its substrate.
At home in any decor, Winona leans traditional with a few hints of contemporary appeal. Winona's curved headboard dips in symmetry with the footboard, which seems to really make the beauty of the bamboo pop. With larger panels than the other beds, Winona places an emphasis on letting the bamboo do the work, giving the bed a stylish appeal perfect for the purist.
Looking for a modern and stylish bed that's also eco-friendly? Look no further than the Monterey Bed! This beautiful bed is made from solid sustainable bamboo, with a rich amber finish. The craftsmanship is impeccable, with turned and tapered legs, and a prominent headboard. The Monterey Bed is sure to become the centerpiece of your bedroom!

Sometimes finding the right design to complement your style is tricky, so I hope one of the above bed frames caught your eye! Then just shop, choose your bed size (sadly no full or twin size bed for now), and get ready to create your dream bedroom!
