At Scott Jordan Furniture, we prefer to use through bed bolts to construct our bedsteads. Through bed bolts are a fail-safe method of insuring a very tight connection that eliminates bed rattle, shake, and motion transfer, insuring generations of service.
Furthermore, we only use standard hardware in our bed construction. All of the components can be found at a good hardware supplier. This avoids the troubles of specialized furniture hardware that might be difficult to replace if lost, especially years from now.
We have produced thousands of beds over a period of thirty years and we know from experience that our methods are sound. If there is any improvement possible we would be very interested to consider it.
The slats are supported by a center leg that insures that the slats will not bend and sag over time. This also provides a firm, level, foundation for the mattress.
Our bed slats are made from sound hardwood; we use a variety of woods that are suitable to the function: oak, maple, ash, beech, cherry, according to what is currently available from our lumber supplier. In any case we select only locally raised hardwood.
All of our beds are constructed one at a time, just like in the old days, allowing for a wide selection of size and designs. However, we employ computer guided machinery to produce the parts one at a time very precisely. This modern combination of building techniques offers a very high degree of accurate fit with the finest hardwoods in a wide selection of styles and customization possibilities and we do it in our workshop in New York City. Please visit our showroom, open 7 days a week, at 137 Varick St in New York City, corner of Spring and Varick, and work with our expert design staff to find a solid wood platform bed tailored to your interior and your specific interior needs.
