Who said wood had to be rustic?

Whilst modern wooden furniture is great and can easily act as a stand-out piece, sometimes there is just no beating reclaimed wood.

This is one material, particularly suar wood or Douglas fir, that is great for making bed frames that are like no other.

Croft House LA created a rustic looking bed that triples as a bed, seat and a table, thus there is no need for a night stand or stool.

It’s something different from the usual bedroom furniture and can act as a nice change from the common lay out.
