If you're in the market for a new bed frame, there are a few things you should consider if you want to go the eco-friendly route: look for frames made with sustainable and/or recycled materials, like FSC-certified wood and recycled steel, and non-toxic, water-based finishes and adhesives. We've put together a list to help get you started, with low, medium, and high-end options.

From low to high:

  • Keetsa Bed Frame ($189-$284): Made out of recycled steel (and can be recycled again)
  • Solid Oak Unfinished Platform Bed ($169-$199): Made with unfinished and chemical-free FSC-certified PA oak
  • Platform Bed and Headboard from Lax Studios ($1,060-$1,270): When going green, getting more for less isn't as important as getting more from less (as Michelle Kaufmann says). That's what this bed—with its built-in headboard storage—does.
  • Plank Bed from Viva Terra (sale $1,675-1,775): Made of reclaimed Douglas Fir with an eco-friendly wax finish.
  • Beam Daybed from Shimna ($3,600): Bench-made in the USA using locally produced components wherever possible. Most of the wood is locally sourced from family-owned lumberyards using traditional and sustainable harvesting techniques, and it's then constructed and fabricated using only water-based adhesives and finishes.
  • Area Bruno Bed ($3,900 for queen): Made in the USA with FSC certified sustainable solid hardwood and aluminum die cast legs and support.
  • Shannon Bed from Vivavi ($3,900): Made with FSC-certified wood frame, recycled steel hardware, non-toxic, water-based finish and adhesives, and natural latex cushions in organic wool wrap.
