The Shaker Bed: Not Just Another Wooden Bed Frame

shaker-style bed


The Shaker Bed is the newest piece of furniture added to the Union Wood Co. collection of wooden bed frames made in Canada. The bed got its name directly from the Shaker style of furniture design and construction. 

Shaker furniture is one of our favourite furniture styles because the simplicity of the designs allows for the quality of craftsmanship to shine through. Each piece has a distinct character of handmade furniture.

Shaker Bed - Who Are the Shakers?

The Shakers were a religious sect of people from the 18th to the 20th century who were known for their principles of simplicity, unity, and honesty. Their dedication to the Shaker faith influenced the way they approached construction and design. Furniture was made to serve a function, so Shaker woodworkers only included details that enhanced the quality of what they were building.

In the traditional spirit of the Shakers, the Shaker Bed was designed with the simple intention of providing you with a bed you can always count on. Instead of being made to follow current trends, the bed is built to be a classic piece of furniture you will always treasure. Check out the product page to see this bed's dimensions and available wood options.

All of our wooden bed frames are handmade in Western Canada at our Vancouver workshop. Every piece of furniture we make is made to order. We deliver right to your front door, anywhere in Canada or the United States.
