The Manhattan Poster Bed


The Manhattan PosterBedoffers handcrafted quality and beauty in American Red Oak and Eastern Maple

Made in the USA ~ Abundant Earth

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 Optional 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 order.

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.

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.


    Astoria Platform Bed in Maple with Artisan Upgrade

  • 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 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.

  • Extra 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 an extra "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 extra 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: You have a choice of either second growth solid American Red Oak or second growth solid Eastern Maple. Both choices are extremely solid and durable.
     

  • Mattress Height and Height Under the Side Rails: The top of the slats sits at 15" inches. You mattress height may be determined by adding your mattress thickness to this height. The height under the side rails is 13.5 inches.
     

    Optional Brighton Headboard Optional Bay City Headboard
    Optional Cape Mission Headboard Optional Arch Wave Headboard


    Headboard Configurations: The Manhattan Poster Bed comes standard with the spindled 31" Columbia Headboard (shorter version of the Optional Brighton Headboard). For an additional fee you may change the headboard to any one of the headboards below.

    • Optional Brighton Headboard: A taller version of the Columbia Headboard, the top of the Brighton Headboard stands at 38" from the floor.

    • Optional Bay City Headboard (not avail on King): This 38" headboard is similar to the spindled Brighton Headboard, except for the curved top cross-board which is reminiscent of the sun rising or setting over a body of water.

    • Optional Cape Mission Headboard (see picture at top of page): For those who enjoy a more classical early American Mission look, the 38" Cape Mission Headboard is very popular.

    • Optional Arch Wave or Arch Cape Headboard (not avail on King):  Mix a touch of class with a large dollop of whimsical and the 38" Arch Wave Headboard is born. You choose any combination of straights lines (Flat), arches (1 Wave) and multiple waves to make the perfect platform bed headboard to fit your creative personality. The Arch Wave Headboard offers a headboard with two cross-boards that are customized for you. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button below and then select your Upper Headboard Cross-board and Lower Headboard Cross-board choices.
       

  • Footboard: Optionally, you may add a footboard (additional fee) to The Manhattan Poster Bed as the perfect complement to your headboard.
     

  • 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; the Box Spring Option lowers the height under the side rails by 3 inches.

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, Queen and King sized beds.
