The Arcadia Platform Bed

The Arcadia PlatformBed offers handcrafted quality and tantalizing beauty

Made in the USA ~ Abundant Earth

Clean and classic lines, strong joints and handmade craftsmanship mark the Neahkahnie line of platform beds. The Arcadia Platform Bed may be used as a platform for a mattress or futon only or with a mattress and box spring (see Box Spring option below). The Arcadia Platform Bed is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full and Queen sizes. The Arcadia Platform Bed combines modern chic with exotic Eastern flair. The Arcadia Platform Bed comes standard with a 38-1/2" headboard. Choose either the Arched Back version shown above or the Straight Back shown below. For extra storage space underneath your bed, you may add a set of Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers.

Our Neahkahnie Platform Beds and Bedroom Furniture products are made with the finest second-growth (no old growth) American Red Oak and Eastern Maple wood. Finish options include unfinished, finished with a hand rubbed Danish Tung Oil, or finished with a Dark Walnut Oil (oak only). Our unfinished and Danish Tung Oil finish options are available at no extra charge, and the Dark Walnut Oil finish is available for an additional fee. A VOC-free All Natural 100% Danish Oil is also available for an additional fee. All of our products have concealed connectors and are easy to assemble and disassemble if necessary. *Please note the picture above shows the Arcadia in maple.

Options: Click on the "Add to Cart" button and then select your options from those listed below.

  • Slats: All platform beds come with solid poplar wood slats and are held together with straps for easy assembly of your bed. Our platform beds are made with futon, mattress and foam pad requirements in mind and are built to offer sturdy support to all. However, if you are you concerned about needing extra support for your spring mattress, latex or foam mattress or futon, we offer options to increase the amount of slats on your bed. Our poplar slats are approximately 2" wide have about 3.2" of space between each slat. If you select the Premium Slat Upgrade (additional fee), the spaces between the slats will be reduced to approximately 1.65". If you select the Ultimate Slat Upgrade (additional fee), the space between the slats will be reduced to approximately 1/2". For futons, we do not recommend the Ultimate Slat Upgrade as futons need space between the slats in order to breathe properly. Latex or foam mattresses, however, benefit from having smaller spaces between the slats. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then make your choice.

  • Artisan Frame Upgrade: The standard Neahkahnie platform bed frames are built solid and sturdy with 3-1/4" rails, headboard and footboard crosspieces. However, for those who want a more traditional heirloom look with even more support and strength than our solid standard frame, we offer the Artisan Frame Upgrade with 5-3/4" rails, headboard and footboard crosspieces. This upgrade significantly changes the look and feel of the bed while still retaining the beauty and distinctiveness of this platform bed style. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then make your choice. The picture above right shows the Arcadia Platform Bed in Dark Bamboo (bamboo is no longer available) with Artisan Frame Upgrade.

  • Finish: You may choose to have your bed unfinished or finished with Danish Tung Oil. For an additional fee, you may have your bed finished with Dark Walnut Oil (Oak only) or finished with our special VOC-free All Natural Danish Oil. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then make your choice. Please Note: Because the All Natural Danish Oil contains no petro-chemical driers (VOCs), it stays wetter longer and therefore emits an odor longer than the standard Danish Tung Oil. For people with chemical sensitivities (MCS) or odor sensitivities, we strongly recommend ordering your bed unfinished and applying your own finish.

  • Y-Leg Support Legs (Full, Queen and King Beds Only): The standard Neahkahnie platform bed frames are built solid and sturdy. The standard Full and Queen size beds have a center rail that runs under the slats from the front to the back of the beds and provides extra strength and support to the frame. Optionally, though not necessary, you may add a "Y-Leg" Support Leg (extra fee) for placement under the center support rail on the Full or Queen beds. The King beds come with 2 Center Support Rails so you may add 2 Y-Leg Support Legs (1 under each Center Support Rail). The Y-Leg Support Legs add additional support and strength to the frame and is a platform bed requirement by some mattress manufacturers. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then make your choice if you wish to add this option.

  • Wood Type: The Arcadia Platform Bed offers you a choice of either second growth solid American Red Oak or second growth solid Eastern Maple. Both wood choices are extremely solid and durable.*Please note the pictures above and below show the Arcadia in Bamboo which is no longer available. The Arcadia is only available in oak and maple. Arcadia Straight Back Headboard

  •  Headboard Style: The Arcadia Platform Bed is available with the Arched Back Headboard shown above or the Straight Back Headboard shown on the right. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then make your choice.

  • Bed Height Options: You may add 3 inches to the height of your bed. This will make the platform sit higher and add to the space under the bed. Alternatively, you may lower the bed height by 4" or 7". You will not be able to use the Underbed Drawers or the Box Spring Option (see below) if you choose to lower the height of your bed. Also, the Box Spring Option lowers the height under the side rails by 3 inches.

  • Footboard: The Arcadia Platform Bed's foot stands at approximately 14".

  • Headboard Gap Option for Thick Mattresses and Box Spring Option: Do you have an extra thick mattress or futon (thicker than 8 inches)? No problem. You can increase the space between the top of the slats and the bottom cross piece on the headboard and enjoy a fuller view of your headboard above your tall mattress or futon. See the table below. If you will be using a box spring with your mattress, you will want to choose the Box Spring Option. For any of these options, simple click on the Add to Cart button on the bed of your choice and then select your options from the drop-down menus provided on the shopping cart page. Please note, you may not use the Box Spring Option if you choose to lower the height of your bed.

Underbed Drawers:
Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers
For a unique storage option, add a set of two Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers to your order. The picture on the right shows the standard Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers with Oak Fronts and Sides. Each of the Underbed Drawers measures 32" wide x 17" deep x 6" tall (drawer front is 32-1/4" wide and sits on free rolling casters (the total height with casters is about 7-3/8"). Our standard Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers come with either Oak or Maple fronts, and Poplar sides. If the sides of your drawers will be visible from the end of the bed, you may want to add the "Same Wood Side Upgrade" for an additional fee. These upgraded Underbed Drawers use the same wood and finish on the sides that you choose for your drawer fronts (either Oak or Maple). The Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers are only sold in sets of two and will not work on any option where the bed is lowered including the Box Spring Option. You may fit up to four Underbed Drawers (two under each side of the bed) for Twin, Twin XL, Full and Queen sized beds.
