Clean and classic lines, strong joints and handmade
craftsmanship mark the Neahkahnie line of platform beds. The Manhattan
Poster 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
Manhattan Poster Bed is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and
King sizes. With clean and simple lines, The Manhattan Poster Bed offers a contemporary
spin on the old European aristocratic four poster beds of antiquity.
The Manhattan Poster Bed comes with four 75" posts
connected all along the top by 3-1/4" cross-boards. The Manhattan
Poster Bed includes the Columbia Headboard (shorter version of the
Brighton Headboard shown below). However,
optional headboards are available (see below). You may also add an
matching footboard to complete your bed. For extra storage space
underneath your bed, add a set of Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers to your

platform beds come with solid poplar wood slats
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
the slats will be reduced to approximately 1.65". If
you select the Ultimate Slat Upgrade (additional fee), the space
the slats will be reduced to approximately 1/2". For futons, we do not
the Ultimate Slat Upgrade as futons need space between the slats in
to breathe properly. Latex or foam mattresses, however, benefit from
having smaller spaces between the slats. Simply click on the "Add to
below and then make your choice.
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
below and then make your choice. (The picture above right
shows the Astoria Platform Bed in Maple with
Artisan Frame Upgrade for illustrative purposes only.)
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
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
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
below and then make your choice if you wish to add this option.
Wood Type: You have
a choice of either second growth solid American Red Oak or second
solid Eastern Maple. Both choices are extremely solid and

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
