Slate flows like a river through two solid pieces of sustainably harvested cherry in the Cayuga Bed. This platform bed frame with a solid cherry base is meant to be used with a mattress alone, allowing almost the entire headboard to be seen. The design can be proportioned to be the right height for you if you use a box spring, and can accommodate variations in bedding. The Cayuga bed design can be ordered as a complete set with the Cayuga Nightstands, as a stand alone bed or just the slate and wood headboard. The related Cascade Buffet, Cascade Door, and Holman Dining Hutch employ similar combinations of slate and wood.
