There are countless rustic wooden bed frames out in the universe to choose from. So what makes the Avocado Bed Frames special? Simply put, The Avocado Brand does things differently. They don’t just create a product as cheaply as possible and then ask the price they believe they can get out of it.
Avocado goes out of their way to create products that are good for the environment, the people making them, and suite the high demands and requirements of the customer. Then they ask whatever price is appropriate for the finished product.
They also search out as many third party certifications as possible to ensure their customers that their products are the real deal. No green washing here. Just plain good old fashioned handmade American products. Using reclaimed and ethically sourced materials. Keep reading to get all of the details on the Avocado Eco Wood Bed Frame and their Avocado Reclaimed Wood Natural Bed Frame.
What exactly is “Eco Wood” you ask? Well in this bed frame Eco Wood is reclaimed hard wood which is sourced out of California. By reclaiming already used wood and giving it a new life, this prevents more trees from being cut down in order to make more furniture. This reduces the waste and is a more sustainable way to create beautiful wooden bed frames.
Most of the reclaimed wood used in the Avocado Eco Wood Bed Frame comes from building from 50 to 100 years old. The lumber used in these buildings were older trees that are dense and more durable overall. New younger lumber tends to be more soft and less dense, making it less likely to last as long.
The wood used in the Reclaimed Wood Natural Bed is a different type of wood than Avocado uses in their Eco Wood Frame. They use solid Douglas Fir that is “rescued” in California.
Since the wood used in these bed frames, they will have unique nail holes, marks, scratches and so forth. This rustic look means each individual bed frame is completely unique. This look also allows the bed frame to look great with age wear and tear.

While the value of an item is typically subjective, we tend to characterize an items value off of the quality of the product you are getting for your money. When it comes to the quality of materials, construction, economical and ethical consideration of the Avocado Beds, they really can’t be beat. However, we find the pricing to be interesting on these for these bed frames. They appear to be priced more based off of labor than materials. We say this because the prices between the Twin and a California King is only $200.
To build any size bed frame takes a very similar amount of time and labor, simply with different length cuts of wood. Which is why they are priced so similarly. Compared to mattresses where the big cost difference is in the amount of materials used between sizes.
