"I fell in love with the wooden aesthetic of the bed. It's beautiful!"
We hear it every time.
People's first reaction to the Slash/Bed is always disbelief that it's not made of some plastic or metal frame, which is typically used for furniture made to disassemble. But that's just not good enough.
We considered many different types of material but kept coming back to issues. Metal is noisy, plastic is environmentally no-good, boxsprings are huge and ugly, particle-wood (basically sawdust and cardboard) falls apart at the screws and can't be rebuilt and moved. Real hardwood solves all these problems. The only downside of wood was the cost, but we figured out a way to make up for it by saving on other expenses, like shipping and storage (learn more about that here!) *hint: we slashed the bed in half!*
Then why doesn't a bed like this already exist? Well, timing mostly. Today is the day for a modern bed. By removing inefficiencies, we're able to help you save money, get better quality furniture, and do good for the planet.
