PRICE DROP - American / Danish Modern Teak Bed Frame - $45!!

Retro Modern Vintage Scan Type Twin headboard and footboard - $45 (Chantilly)

This listing is for a mid century modern twin-sized headboard and footboard. This is a simple but beautiful design that is unique relative to other modern and mid century beds. The first time I saw this listing I passed it by because the style seemed too "arts and crafts" for my taste. But on second look, the design feels more like a mix of American modern and Danish modern from the 1960s, and I actually think this is a great looking bed frame. The seller states that the piece is made of solid teak, and this appears to be the case based on the photos. It is missing the bed rails, but these are easily and cheaply replaceable. If you are looking for a twin bed frame, this could be a great option at a reasonable price of $85.

  1. Drexel Declaration was designed by Stewart MacDougall and Kipp Stewart. The headboard was made by Drexel in their Declaration series which was indeed intended to be a Danish mod twist on what was then a penchant for Colonial furnishing knock offs in middle America. Some of the Declaration pieces are quite sought after today. I personally love their magazine side table and short book case.
