Baks Bed

Starting at $17,500 USD

Our Original Designs are made to order by master craftsmen, with a lead time of 12-14 weeks. Make it yours by selecting your choice of wood finishes.

Our team of Design Specialists are ready to answer any of your questions and help inspire you from frame to finish.

Bäks is the phonetic spelling of “box” and ours features firm box-beam construction and precisely fitted corners. The balanced platform mixes a floating and cantilevered presence. A large characteristic bevel runs along the footboard edge. Cutouts on the platform provide flexible support and ventilation for your mattress, eliminating the need for a box-spring.  We have been sleeping on this model for over twenty years. 

Choose from a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods with natural finishes.

Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer’s Roman and Williams Guild Original Designs are each branded with our insignia and delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
