Oak Bedroom Furniture

Furniture Traditions - Begin in the Bedroom with Oak Bedroom Furniture that's Made in America

Our bookcase headboards work great with any of our softside waterbeds and all regular mattresses. They are freestanding so all you do is put them behind your mattress and frame and you're done. No assembly required and you can also use them with our drawer pedestals as shown below.

We display nine Oak Headboards and three different Oak Bedroom Furniture Collections that are available in several finishes. There are three styles to choose from; traditional, mission and modern. Our Oak Bedroom Furniture is Made In America and built to last a lifetime from Northern Red Oak, a hardwood that's sustainable and comes with an excellent environmental record. We think it's the best Oak Bedroom Furniture that you can find.

We also offer 14" tall matching Oak Six Drawer Pedestals that provide organized storage space under the mattress plus they feature two cubby doors at the foot of the bed to maximize storage capacity. These drawers are functional and sturdy, too. They are so strong that will easily support the weight of a softside waterbed!

Headboards and drawers are not for waterbeds only - use any type of mattress you choose!

Venetian Oak Bedroom Collection

King 76 1/2" Tall X 18" Deep X 128" Wide - Queen 76 1/2" Tall X 18" Deep X 114" Wide

 

At first glance, some people think the King Venetian Pier Wall won't fit in their bedroom but most likely it will. It takes up the same amount of space as a king size headboard with a nightstand on each side. The Venetian Pier Wall and Drawers is actually ideal for a small bedroom giving you lots of storage space where there was none before. To get the point across, we show one in king size in the store in a room that's only twelve and a half feet wide! Shown with the optional 14" tall six drawer pedestal that provides organized storage under the mattress plus they now feature two cubby doors at the foot of the bed to access even more storage space.

Mission Creek Oak Bedroom Collection

The truly unique pyramid and mission styling of the Mission Creek Collection both reflect the original designs of the American Arts & Crafts movement. With timeless styling and heirloom quality construction, the Mission Creek Bedroom Collection is unlike any other.

Handcrafted in the USA from North American Red Oak, all furniture case pieces feature unrivaled quality features like one inch thick solid oak tops and drawer fronts with aromatic cedar drawers throughout. (Drawer pedestals have 9-Ply Baltic Birch instead of cedar). The drawers also feature English Dovetail construction, two full extension, side mounted Ball-Bearing Glides and individual Dustproofing on each and every drawer.

The Mission Bookcase Headboard features two electrical outlets, two USB Ports, two reading lights, one cord hole exit with cover and two pull out drawers. Even the small drawers in the headboard are full extension drawers, cedar lined and constructed with English Dovetails! It also has a tall pillowstop behind the pillows that provides an excellent prop to lean back on and watch TV or read in bed. This is a completely free standing headboard and can be used with any type of mattress, with or without the drawers underneath.

The headboard drawers are as easily removable as all of the drawers are in the Mission Creek Furniture Collection. They all have two black release tabs in the drawer glide track, one on each side. Pull up on one while pressing down on the other and then the drawer can easily be pulled out. My thumb is pushing down on one of the release tabs in the photo.

If you zoom in, you can see the control panel with the two electrical receptacles and two USB ports. You can also see the on/off switch for the two headboard lights. The Deluxe Mission Creek Bookcase Headboard has all of the extras!

We stock it in the Eastern King Size, like this one, for our Softside Waterbeds and in Cal King for our Hardside Waterbeds. The Eastern King is a completely free standing headboard and can be used with any type of mattress, with or without drawers under the bed. We display the Mission Bookcase Headboard both ways in the showroom for you to compare.

The fake drawer fronts are there just for looks and it's totally open on the inside to accommodate your bulky comforters. All four sides and the bottom are cedar lined and the top is a solid piece of one inch thick Red Oak. It's a sturdy piece of furniture and a good place to sit and put your shoes on!

Oak Platform Beds With Six Drawer Pedestal Bases

Not to be confused with drawers for a hardside waterbed, these are actually platform beds with storage drawers that have a platform bed rail built in. Half inch sheets of oak plywood decking on top of the drawers, instead of slats, add strength and help distribute weight evenly. These drawer pedestals are designed to be used under any type of mattress and built more than sturdy enough to support a Softside Waterbed and its sleepers!

Our Oak Platform Beds With Six Drawers can be used as a stand alone unit without a headboard, with your existing free standing headboard or choose one of our matching headboards. At 14 inches tall and used with a low profile foundation and Softside mattress, the total height is around 27 inches which is about the right height for most people.

They're perfect for smaller bedrooms or maybe you just have a lot of stuff to store, either way, they can really dress up your bed and they have more storage space than most dressers without taking up any extra floor space.

We stock our Platform Frame and Drawer sets in three styles and three finishes in both Eastern King (regular bed size) and Queen.

Made in America

Assembly Instructions

Position the drawer bases in front of the headboard or wall. Note that the drawers that go towards the head are offset by 9 inches so they will allow the end drawer to clear a night stand when pulled out and drawers at the foot of the bed are only one inch from the end. Now is a good time to make sure the two drawers at the head will pull all the way out and check them again just before you put the decking on.

Fully extend the drawers at the foot of the bed on both sides and place the Cubby Door Kit in front of both sets of drawers. Make sure the door kit is in proper alignment with both bases and press down down on the top corners, as shown in the photo, to keep the corners level. Then secure the door kit from the inside of the compartment by screwing through the back of the drawer compartment and into the back of the door kit. Install the screws in the corners where the drawer casing meets the footboard starting at the bottom corner with one screw to anchor and insure the footboard and drawer stay in proper alignment and then placing one screw in the middle and then one at the top corner.

Install the three 24" deck boards by laying them on the lip on the inside of the platform bed rail. Start at the foot of the bed leaving a space at the head of the bed for the eight inch piece. Push both drawer sets in towards the decking on each side for a custom, snug fit. Install the spacer board to cover the space between the two drawer sets at the head of the bed by placing one screw through each corner coming in from the backside. Install the eight inch deck piece at the head and screw all deck boards down to the ledge on the platform frame with one screw in the corner of each piece.

Optional: If using a headboard, you may want to install L brackets to anchor the headboard to the drawer pedestal to help keep it steady. To see where to place L brackets, zoom in on the first photo in this section and you will see where the L brackets should be attached to the headboard and decking.
