We craft our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame with sturdy natural timber and assemble it with eco-conscious materials. We offer two constructions: maple or walnut. The slats are made of maple or walnut to match the frame. Handmade in our sustainable Los Angeles facility (just like our Green and Vegan mattresses), which marries traditional craftsmanship with high-tech capabilities, the platform adds elegance to any bedroom. Inspired by mid-century design, the bed employs clean, simple lines to create a classic piece that will stand the test of time.
A lot of furniture is mass-made with cheap particle board, synthetic laminates, or veneers. Each piece looks exactly the same. That's not how we do things at Avocado. We individually handcraft all our furniture with 100% solid, FSC®-certified wood. We believe in letting the rich character of the wood speak for itself. This way, every piece is original, with its own slight variations. It costs a little more to do things this way. But our customers love having unique, durable, thoughtfully crafted furniture that will last generations.
We only use materials that are safe for you and your family. We stain the Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame with a zero-VOC finish called ECOS® WoodShield stain, which is organic, non-toxic, and odor-free. For assembly, we use safe, fumeless Titebond Wood Glue that meets the requirements of ASTM D4236 for use with arts and crafts and has been approved for indirect food contact. All materials are American-made.
Furniture paints and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution because they emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In fact, the Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and particle board commonly used in furniture construction often contain known carcinogens, such as Urea-formaldehyde or Phenol-formaldehyde. Our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame doesn't use any of these materials. As members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest assured that our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame supports healthy, environmentally friendly living.
The angular legs highlight the simple, elegant design of our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame. It's an heirloom piece with a timeless aesthetic — a rare piece of furniture that becomes a story, inevitably passed on from generation to generation. Plus, setup is easy. Just follow these simple instructions.
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the life cycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Mid-Century Modern Bed entirely with real wood. The natural materials make the bed frame biodegradable. What’s more, our GOTS certified (CU863637) California factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning almost nothing gets thrown away. We upcycle all our material byproducts. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.
Every decision we make takes social and environmental implications into consideration. That's why we source the most sustainable timber and use the healthiest finishes on the planet. Our wood furniture can even earn points toward the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program — a nationally recognized rating system for sustainable building by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame is handmade in our FSC®-certified (C156318) facility in Los Angeles. Our updated version now ships via FedEx. Furniture is not currently available to ship to Alaska and Hawaii. Optional in-home setup does not include hauling away your old bed frame. At this time, furniture and mattress and/or bedding orders can not be coordinated to arrive at the same time.
Assembly of our Avocado Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame with Optional Headboard is easy and only requires an Allen wrench. For more about assembly, see our Help Center article here.

We do not use traditional lacquers or varnishes, which typically contain harsh chemicals and have strong fumes that can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Instead, our bed frames use a zero-VOC ECOS® WoodShield stain, which is organic, non-toxic, and odor-free. It conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use), as well ASTMD-4236, specifically concerning oral toxicity, skin irritation, and respiratory effects
Our assembly utilizes Titebond® wood glues, which are safe and produce no harmful fumes. They meet the requirements of ASTM D4236 for safe use with arts and crafts and have both been approved for indirect food contact. The finished bed is Greenguard Gold certifiedfor low emissions. This means it meets the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
In 2019, Avocado Green became the first non-founding company to become Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business carbon neutral. A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Avocado works with Climate Neutral to reduce its emissions, then we measure and voluntarily offset more than 100% of the rest, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions. But we know offsets aren’t enough. That’s why we also advocate for legislation that will mitigate climate change and protect people and the planet.
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the lifecycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Mid-Century Modern Bed Frame with natural, solid wood, which makes it biodegradable. What’s more is that our GOTS certified factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning we upcycle or recycle nearly all of our waste. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.
All of the furniture from Avocado is made in our own FSC® certified woodshop in California, where standards for sustainability and social responsibility are high. No Avocado wood furniture is imported.
We operate an FSC® C156318 certified woodshop — in a facility completely separate from our mattress factory, in Los Angeles — which produces wood dust. Read California's required Proposition 65 warning for wood dust.
All furniture sales are final, with the exception of any defects in workmanship. Defects in workmanship are covered by our 10-year warranty.
