The Puritas Furniture Company beds are classically designed with studied proportions of the solid hardwood frame. The slatted frames are optimized for support and breathability. Each frame has unique, hand-worked details and is easy to assemble without tools. These frames are as beautiful as they are functional. Rest easier knowing that your bedroom furniture was made with thoughtfulness and good intention.
All sizes besides the single frames have a center support beam. Furthermore, queen and king frames come with a 5th leg at the middle of the center beam. The 5th leg is not absolutely necessary, but will give the platform a more solid feel if desired.
Each piece is made one at a time, this is not factory furniture.
Using only the finest North American hardwoods, Puritas takes the time to hand pick each board, celebrating the woods natural character and creating visual harmony in the final appearance of the piece.
Whether it’s the time-tested traditional joinery techniques or hand-rubbed finishes, Puritas takes the time to do things right.
Puritas rejoices in the experience of a paper thin curl of wood as it shoots out of a sharp hand plane. We believe that handmade things have a certain quality that recommends them above relentless technological perfection.
Perched on the edge of the wilderness in the foothills of Mt. Shasta in far Northern California, Puritas Furniture Company is a small, low impact, family-owned woodworking and design studio immersed in and inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Puritas believes it is a revolutionary and deeply caring act to support local and regional craftspeople and the communities in which we all live. Puritas strives to provide you with beautifully designed and finely crafted classic hardwood furniture while keeping the footprint low and leaving the factories, overseas shipping, and the politics out of it.
These classic designs will never go out of style. The high quality materials and craftsmanship mean your furniture can last a lifetime.
The hardwood lumber comes from carefully managed North American forests. These producers follow the strictest standards in order to ensure long-term viability through sustainable harvesting and management practices. The native west coast softwoods are sourced from carefully managed private lands. Puritas can also accommodate requests for reclaimed and salvaged wood options as well.
Puritas promotes the use of non-toxic finishes and healthy environments. The preferred finish is an all-natural, zero-voc combination of beeswax, linseed oil, and pine resin. This blend is not only non-toxic to the maker and the end user, it is also easier on the environment in its raw ingredients and production.
Puritas also participates in active waste reduction and recycling programs. In addition all power is provided by renewable sources through Pacific Power’s Blue Sky Energy Program.
