With the rise in popularity of modern design in the mid-20th century, the contemporary platform bed has become one of our best-selling styles. Sleeker and lower than a traditional bed, it is designed to use a mattress alone (no box spring), so it requires a solid support structure.
At Charles P. Rogers, our contemporary platform bed styles represent the best of modern design from Japan, Europe, and America. Offered in wood, metal and upholstery, all of our platform beds include an internal framework and solid wood base to provide strong rigid support for the entire mattress. Our wood platform bed models are sturdily constructed from solid hardwood planks matched for quality and grain. Our durable hand-rubbed finishes enhance the natural beauty and character of the wood. Each bed is precisely fit and finished in meticulous detail, courtesy of over 150 years in the bed-making business.
When Charles P. Rogers founded the company in 1855, he could hardly have imagined that the business would be as durable and long-lasting as the beds he made. To this day, original Charles P. Rogers iron and brass beds are still seen in high-end estate sales and antique shops around the world. Meanwhile we celebrate over 150 years of business in Manhattan with an ever-expanding selection of models and styles, including classics from the 19th and early 20th centuries, contemporary designs from the 20th and 21st centuries and even premium linens that will enhance the comfort and elegance of any bed in our collection.
The products you see on our web site are different from those on other web sites and in catalogs or stores. Each is an exclusive original design, designed in house and made by expert craftsmen in our own factories. We offer these items to you, our customer, directly from our factory stores. Do not be fooled by inferior imitations. We use authentic materials and time-tested processes in the construction and pay particular attention to proportion and detail in order to retain the integrity of classic designs while accommodating modern mattress and linen sizes.
All of our products are made to the same high standards and offer quality and value that becomes ever more apparent over a lifetime of ownership. Our range of prices is representative of differences in material costs and construction complexity, but, because of our factory-direct pricing, all prices represent significant discounts over what you would pay for comparable quality in traditional stores.
By necessity we remain a small company as our products cannot be mass-produced. The advantage for you is that our staff understands and cares how our products are made and they know the best way to get them to your home securely, efficiently, and economically.
Since our inception, we have manufactured and sold our products directly to the public from our Manhattan factory showroom or by mail or phone in our catalog. Our warehouse in New Jersey is also open to the public. Right now, a large selection of our most popular styles are in stock and available at substantial savings from made to order prices.
To order a piece of Charles P. Rogers heirloom quality furniture, simply place an item in your online shopping cart, call us at (800)582-6229 or visit one of our factory showrooms located in Chelsea (Manhattan) and East Rutherford, NJ.
