Did you know that, when you have the right bed frame, you can make your mattress last longer? In fact, you can enjoy its comfort and support for as long as a decade when you invest in a quality foundation. Considering the value of your mattress, you want it to last as long as possible.
The product we’re looking at today can help you do just that.
I recently received my Mid Century Reclaimed Ash Barn Wood bed frame by eLuxury, and I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now. This is a high-quality product that can go a long way in helping you keep your mattress in good shape, so let’s take a look at how it’s worked for me so far.

A Little Bit About the Company
If you’re the type who likes to learn about a company before you give them your business, I think you’ll appreciate the values of eLuxury. The products are made by US veterans, and operations are set up in Evansville, Indiana.
As one of the Internet’s most trusted linen providers, they must be doing something right, and I think it has a lot to do with their philanthropy. Some of the organizations they support include:
- St. Mary’s Foundation
- March of Dimes
- House of Bread and Peace
- Toys for Tots
- Support the Troops
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- Soldier Dogs for Independence
- The Arc Evansville
You can buy the bed frame with or without the headboard. Pricing is as follows:
- California King
- Frame and Headboard
- California King
If you’re also in the market for a mattress to go with your bed frame, eLuxury offers a special for bundled orders. You can enjoy a $100 discount when you purchase an eLuxury mattress with your frame.
Careful Selection Process
You can see the bed frame is very nice to look at, and this is because each piece of wood is carefully selected for individuality and imperfections. While many companies use commercial sanders and low-quality paint or stains to cover up knots, holes, and saw marks, eLuxury allows them to shine, and this gives the final product a rustic look. In my case, I painted the headboard, and I love the way it made these features stand out.

Special Note on Painting Your Headboard
If you like how mine looks and want to paint yours, keep in mind it has a grey stain and clear coat on it. Make sure you sand it down before painting.
Use of Other Headboards
We all want to save money. If you already have a headboard, you may be wondering if you could just attach it to the frame. This product is manufactured with pre-drilled holes for the complementary eLuxury headboard. Yours most likely doesn’t have holes in the right spots. If you want to use your own, you’d need to level it with the pre-existing holes. Keep in mind, this could void your warranty.
Headboard Installation Tip
When you try to screw the nut onto the two bolts that hold the headboard up, you may find there’s not enough space to fit it tightly. I found that, by hammering the head of the bolt into the wood, it frees up just enough space to secure it well.
What Color Is It?
There is some confusion when it comes to color. On some pictures online, the frame looks brown. In others, it appears grey. This is an important detail to consider as you decide whether it will look good in your room. As we mentioned, a light grey stain is used. The color is very neutral, and this allows the frame and headboard to fit in well with most color schemes.
No Pre-Treatment Chemicals
Many bed frames are pre-treated with chemicals, and this can cause irritation for some consumers. One of the things I really like about this product is that the old barn wood used only has a grey stain and clear coat applied during manufacturing.

Our Final Verdict
I love the craftsmanship that goes into each and every eLuxury product I’ve tried out. The rustic look of the Mid Century Reclaimed Ash Barn Wood bed frame creates a pleasant aura in any room, and there’s no need to use box springs with it. I think you’ll be happy with how easy it is to put together. Just make sure you have someone around if you buy the headboard as it can be difficult to hoist up onto the frame.
