The simplicity and elegance of Japanese furniture has had a major influence on contemporary furniture design. Our Zen platform bed is a perfect example of this trend. We utilize key design elements and decorative joinery to give the Zen a spare sophistication. Designed to use only a mattress (no box-spring), it is entirely handcrafted from oversized solid lumber stock which we cut and kiln dry ourselves. The Zen's exposed joinery allows for movement of the wood which naturally occurs with seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. The deep, rich espresso finish is applied in layers and hand rubbed to accentuate the natural wood grain.
Other Japanese inspired platform bed styles in our collection include the Alana, Barcelona, Cherry Platform and other contemporary styles such as the Monterrey all of which reflect the best in contemporary international design.
All of our Japanese inspired platform beds are designed to use a mattress alone rather than a traditional mattress and box spring. In addition, all include an upholstered wood platform engineered to provide a rigid base for uniform support of the mattress..
When Charles P. Rogers founded our company in 1855, he probably would not have imagined that his company would be as long-lived as the beds he made. Today we celebrate over 150 years of business with an ever-expanding selection of models and styles, including classics from our early days, contemporary designs from the entire 20th century and most recently, even premium bed linens, duvet covers and bedding.
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 materials and complexity, but, because of our "factory-direct" business model, all prices represent substantial discounts over what you would pay for comparable quality in traditional retail stores.
By necessity, we have remained a small company as our products cannot be mass-produced. The advantage for you is that our staff understands and cares how a bed is made and they know the best way to get one to your home 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 Florida 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. Simply order online, by telephone (800-582-6229) or by visiting one of our factory showrooms in NY, PA, or NJ. We look forward to assisting you in any way possible.
