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.

        The bed was set up in about 3 minutes, shockingly fast, by the delivery people. The design is simple and straightforward which facilitates set up. It looks exactly as it does on the web site. The support people were very communicative and helpful both by phone and email. The mattress I purchased locally fit perfectly. No bad surprises.

          Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Bed:

          I ordered the bunky board since I have a Tempur-pedic mattress, and I'm very pleased. I do not find it difficult to make the bed. I got the tall leg option since my home has 9 foot ceilings, and the proportions are terrific. After a year of use I started hearing squeaks and discovered it was the bed rubbing against the wall, not the bed itself. I pulled the bed back to its original position (half an inch from the wall) and the squeaks stopeed. The style of this bed goes with almost everything; I use it with a mix of modern, mission, and colonial furniture. Because my bedroom is on the second floor up a spiral staircase, I needed a platform bed that was easy to move but could still support the weight of a heavy mattress. This fit the bill admirably. The only care the bed frame needs is an occasional wipe with a slightly damp dust cloth. I can't comment on assembly because I used R&B's delivery and set up service, which was terrific.

            Great product. Second metal bed frame I have purchased. Strong, easy to set up, and attractive.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Service truck arrived at 1am during a terrible snowstorm -- the guy was great! He kept us informed the whole time and we said we would wait up. Once the bed arrived, we quickly set up the bed in time for my sister to sleep on it that night (she had also driven from Iowa through the storm earlier that day)!

            This is the second metal bed I have purchased from Room and Board. Delivery service is always fabulous.

                This bed is a bit difficult to tuck covers on bottom. I may purchase a board for that purpose. We have the pre-curser to this bed in our bedroom. Due to my husband's new job I needed to move to a different room to sleep. Every night I truly love to crawl into this bed.

                  Solid construction, durable finish. We ended up moving soon after we purchased this bed, and even after a move, the bed is still as solid as when it was first unpacked. The original delivery was easy, with competent assemblers.

                  We ended up putting a Slim console table at the end of the bed; they pair well.

                    Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Bed:

                    I have read some of the comments about the bed being hard to make. I have a 2 inch bunky board under my mattress and it raises the mattress just enough so that I'm not having to contend with the steel frame while making the bed.

                    I love the height of the bed. It is built very solid and worth every penny. This bed is an heirloom that will be in my family for generations.

                    Now I need new nightstands, my current bedside tables were for a much lower bed. I think that a set of 28 inch nightstands will work perfectly.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery to the northern part of the delivery area (for the Seattle location) was exact to the minute. The crew worked expeditiously and diligently. I did not use customer service for anything.
