Mackintosh

The natural steel construction of our Mackintosh bed provides a modern interpretation to a classic Arts and Crafts design. Each bed is crafted by hand, from the individually welded spindles to the lacquer finish. Choose the Tall profile for greater clearance between the side rails and the floor. 

This bed features a mattress platform made of steel slats, eliminating the need for a box spring or foundation. We recommend a mattress height of 13 inches or shorter to achieve the ideal bed proportions. Shop our mattresses for a perfect fit.

    I'll Bet It's Nice

    Customer comments about Mackintosh California King High Footboard Bed:

    I ordered this piece almost 2 months ago. After waiting and waiting the the bed finally arrived. The delivery guys got it set up but told me that the slats were the wrong size (so they were going to have customer service send me new ones). They were about to hop in their truck and leave when I noticed that the bed seemed crooked. Turns out the headboard and footboard were not even the same size (width)—which is why the slats wouldn't fit. Luckily I caught it because the delivery/assembly guys were oblivious to the fact. They took the bed down and returned it. So, here I sit, waiting patently for the correct bed to arrive, but feel quite frustrated by the poor communication from R&B. I'll bet it's a really nice piece, but not sure if it's really worth such a ridiculously long wait/the hassle.

      I instantly fell in love with the simple design of the Macintosh bed. It sits high off the floor, appearing to almost float.

        We purchased this bed 18 years ago when we built our house. It is as rock solid as the day it was delivered. No wobbles, squeaks, nothing. Just know this bed weighs a LOT so put it where it will stay as moving it intact is difficult.

          Customer comments about Mackintosh King High Footboard Bed:

          I love this bed. My home a 1920s Dutch colonial, but I have fairly contemporary minimalist style. This bed foots the bill perfectly for a transitional home that doesn't was to be overly modern, and the architecture is a great classic look. It could work in any home. It's also well built. Using the platform and a foam latex mattress it works well, although I could see where making the bed could be a problem without the platform to raise the mattress up a couple inches.

              The bed is gorgeous and very sturdy, but the side rails have rough edges. If you sit up and slide out of bed you will scrape the undersides of your thighs. These edges need to be rounded or polished in some way. Even though, I still love the style and look of this bed and most of all it's sturdiness.

              This is my second king size Macintosh bed, having parted with the first one in my divorce. I really missed it and promised myself I'd replace it as soon as my life/finances got back on track. It is just as I had remembered it;-)
              I'm very happy to have another one.

                  I've had this bed over 10 years. It looks as good today as the day it was delivered - and it's traveled with me cross-country! The design is a great marriage of arts and crafts style and contemporary materials. It is solid and sturdy without appearing bulky.

                  I added 3/4 inch plywood over the slats to provide solid support to my mattress.

                  If there was one thing I would change about the bed, it would be, well, nothing!!!

                    Customer comments about Mackintosh King High Footboard Bed:

                    This is a great bed! It is incredibly sturdy and well-made. It is very simple to assemble. I initially got this bed because I was living in an apartment with little storage space and the height of the bed allowed me to store things under it. Now, even though I do not need the storage space, it is nice to be able to vacuum under the bed. My only complaint is that the foot board is right at hip height, so if you are not careful, you can run right into it. I ordered a mattress that is a little oversized and it fits the bed perfectly. I am purchasing another bed from R&B (steel another design) for the guest bedroom.
