Since the rise in popularity of modern design in the mid-20th century, the platform bed has become an essential element in contemporary bedrooms. Our platform bed models are beautiful, original designs; the finest examples of American, European and Oriental modernist design movements, sturdily constructed by our craftsmen from solid hardwood planks and featuring traditional hand-rubbed finishes.
Though modern in design, our platform bed models are made with the same skill and craftsmanship as our more traditional iron beds, including our exclusive multi-step finishes. All of our platform beds are designed to use a mattress alone rather than a traditional mattress and box spring. In addition, all include a solid wood platform engineered to provide a rigid base for uniform support of the mattress.
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 with an ever-expanding selection of models and styles, including classics from our early days, contemporary designs from the entire 20th century and even premium bed linens and bedding.
The products you see on our web site are different from those on other sites and in catalogs or stores. Each is an original, exclusive design, made in our own factories and available by you, our customer, for direct purchase from our factory stores. We use authentic materials and processes in their construction and pay particular attention to proportion and detail in order to retain the integrity of classic designs while accommodating contemporary bedding sizes and linens.
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 of construction, but, because of our "factory-direct" business model, all bed prices represent substantial discounts over what you would pay for comparable quality in traditional retail chains and specialty stores.
By necessity, we remain a small company as our products cannot be mass-produced, without sacrificing our trademark quality. 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 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 stores are also in New Jersey, Florida, and Pennsylvania and are 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 or by visiting one of our factory showrooms. We look forward to assisting you in any way possible.
