9 Best Wooden Bed Frames of 2022 | Architectural Digest

4 min read

According to AD design editor Madeleine Luckel, West Elm’s narrow Midcentury frame is the perfect fit for a smaller, New York City–sized bedroom (in fact, it’s even followed her to every apartment she’s lived in since 2014). Madeleine particularly liked the frame’s “clean and elegant lines,” and that “the tone of the wood had a nice warm glow to it.” Though buyers should be aware the frame’s relatively low-profile design makes storing taller items more difficult. “Some things that I would like to store underneath it (such as my standard-size Away suitcase) don’t fit,” she notes.

West Elm Simple Bed Frame

Wood type: Solid and engineered wood with wooden slats

Senior SEO manager Katie Henwood’s search for a taller frame that maximized storage space and fit her “minimal midcentury style” eventually led her to West Elm’s solid wood platform bed. With easy set up and ample room to store under-bed storage bags filled with extra bedding, coats, shoes, and more, it’s clear why Katie dubbed this platform bed “the Mary Poppins bag of bed frames.” Most importantly, the wood frame allowed Katie to make the most of her limited square footage. “Anyone looking to create more space in their small apartment, this is the bed frame for you,” she says. “It’s not bulky like some bed frames that come with storage built in, and is simple enough to take with you wherever you go in the future.”

Wood type: Reclaimed pine with a distressed white finish and castors

With no assembly required, Shabby Chic’s twin-sized Folk Beds were the perfect choice to transform commerce partnerships director Jacqueline Wladis’ childhood bedroom into a guest-friendly space with “a casual, boho-chic vintage look.” In fact, the “super sturdy” beds have since stayed in Jacqueline’s family home for more than seven years running. Jacqueline even told us that when her mom recently mentioned replacing the heavy duty twin beds with a queen-size bed, she fought to keep the stylishly rustic frames. “I slept on this bed for about three months during the pandemic—maybe it was the mattress, maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline—but I never had any issues.”

Zinus Linda Wood Platform Bed Frame

Wood type: Solid wood slats, headboard, and foundation

Zinus’ ethos is centered around accessibility and the belief that quality products can come at low price points (the brand’s metal platform bed frame is a great example of that). The wood Linda frame’s subtle “Scandi Vibes,” impressed our commerce editor Rachel Fletcher who declared that the piece felt neutral and looked “way more expensive than the less-than-$350 price tag.” Sturdy wooden slat support (no box spring required here!) with a built in metal interior frame made the bed feel ultra secure, while the overall high quality exceeded her expectations. “The style of the Linda is pretty agnostic—it’s a little midcentury, a little Scandinavian—so much so that I can imagine it fitting into a host of home decor aesthetics, from a cozy cabin to something more minimalist, or beach-y, or boho!”

Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed

Wood type: Kiln-dried solid wood and veneers

Features editor Nick Mafi described Pottery Barn’s Farmhouse bed frame as “sturdy but still soft” and was drawn to the fact that it “looks like something you’d see in a country home.” Besides the aesthetic appeal and hassle-free white glove assembly service, Nick appreciated the cozy-looking design (featuring both a headboard and footboard!) had been screened for over 10,000 harmful chemicals and felt it was ultimately worth the higher price tag. “Like most pieces of furniture that expensive, it’s built to last,” he says. “The design of the frame is important in that, even five or so years from now, it won’t scream dated.”

Wood type: Solid oak, Andorra wool

Modloft’s Haru bed has a “subtle, Japanese Scandi-inspired design aesthetic” and overall high-end look that made it the ideal choice for our commerce writer Audrey Lee. Though she notes it takes a little patience to fully assemble the new bed, once it comes together, you might just spend all day admiring it. “Unlike my last bed frame, I don’t hear any creaks or find myself having to move the frame back into place because it’s shifted places,” she notes. In addition to calling it “the nicest frame [she’s] ever owned,” Audrey went on to say, “If you’re on the hunt for something timeless and willing to spend a little bit more, this frame’s got a light and airy quality that will never go out of style.”
