Eco Wood Collection
Materials & Build:
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.
Eco Wood Bed Frame
The Eco Wood Bed Frame by Avocado is a simple and modular design. It does not feature a headboard which you may or may not find appealing. This bed has a much higher profile than the City Bed.
It has plenty of breathing room underneath the bed, makes for easy cleaning or potential storage. Overall, the Eco Bed is a simple frame that highlights the beauty of the reclaimed wood. It will work with most interior design styles.

The mid-century modern design also gives this bed a more stylized look and appeal. Coming in at the most expensive in the collection, this is going to be reserved for someone who truly adores the design, and is willing to pay extra for this aesthetic.
Best Value for Money – Natural Wood
In our opinion the Natural Wood Bed Frame and furniture collection is the best value for your money. The headboard is often preferred by most sleepers, and the style is classic and timeless. Making it a great choice to look fabulous through the ages.
The Eco Wood follows close behind as it is also a great price point and gives you a lot for your money. Although, it is narrowly beaten by the headboard design used for the Natural Wood Collection.
