This modern style platform bed has a beautiful satin sheen that keeps it from feeling too rustic. It has very clean lines and a slightly higher headboard height to show off the solid Alder wood panel above your pillows. Alder is a hardwood with very little grain pattern, so it is a great medium for stain. We show it in this contemporary Driftwood color, but there are 12 colors to choose from so you can customize it to change the look or to match existing furnishings. The 2 West is built in Ohio in the tradition of the Amish furniture builders so it is made to last.
