First appearing around 50 years ago, modern platform beds have carved out an important place in contemporary design. Considered by most designers to be an essential element of the modern bedroom, contemporary platform beds combine function and form at the highest levels.
As American's oldest bed-maker, Charles P. Rogers has expanded its range over time to include a superb collection of high quality platform beds in solid wood, metal and upholstery. Our wood platform beds are sturdily constructed from solid hardwood planks selected for strength and character. The beds with a steel framework are made with the same skill and craftsmanship as our more traditional iron and brass models. We use precise joinery and hand layered finishes for protecting and enhancing the natural beauty of the finished piece.
Whether in wood, fabric or metal, all our contemporary platform beds include a solid wood platform and an integrated structure that has been engineered to provide a rigid base for uniform support of the entire mattress. All upholstery is designed for comfort, style and durability. Every platform bed is precisely fit and finished with our 150 years of bed-making experience. Skillful design, engineering and durability make our platform beds some of the best values in modern design available today.
When Charles P. Rogers founded our company in 1855, little did he know that his company would be as long-lived as the beds he made. Today we celebrate over 150 years of business in New York City with an ever-expanding selection of models and styles, including classics from our early days, contemporary designs from the entire 20th century and even a premium linen line that complements our bed selection with comfort and elegance.
The items you will find on our web site are different from those on other sites and in catalogs or stores. Each is an exclusive, original design, conceived by our in-house design team, hand-made in our own factories and available by you, our customer, for direct purchase. Do not be fooled by inferior knock-offs and cheap imitations. We use authentic materials and processes in our construction and pay particular attention to proportion and detail in order to retain the integrity of classic designs while accommodating contemporary mattress sizes such as Queen, King and California King.
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 construction complexity, but, because of our factory-direct business model, all bed prices represent substantial discounts over what you would pay for comparable quality in traditional specialty stores and retail chains.
By necessity we have remained a small company as our products cannot be mass-produced without sacrificing our trademark high quality. The advantage for you is that our expert staff understands and cares how our products are made and they know the best way to get them to your home safely, efficiently and economically.
Since 1855, we have manufactured and sold our products directly to the public from our Manhattan factory showroom or by mail or phone orders from 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 purchase a piece of heirloom quality furniture from Charles P. Rogers, simply place the desired item into your online shopping cart, order by telephone or stop by one of our factory showrooms in NJ or NY. We look forward to assisting you in any way possible and we can't wait to add you to our growing list of delighted customers.
