Description We were so excited when we came across this fabulous mid-century modern full-size bed (along with several other matching pieces from the same collection so check our other listings)! It is by Franklin Shockey Furniture and from their Sculpted Pine Collection. Comprised of SOLID knotty pine! No veneers at all on this piece and it has all the natural character of the natural wood knot holes and all. This line of furniture by Franklin Shockey is a pleasant combination of the sleek undulating lines of mid-century modern mixed with the rustic pine of Dude Ranch or Adirondack furniture. Its arched legs and softly rounded edges have some similarities to Heywood Wakefield’s solid maple mid-century modern pieces as does its smooth beautiful finish. This bed has a gorgeous slab headboard and footboard, but the footboard is broken up with a great keyhole design. It comes with iron side rails. It will be amazing wherever you use it!

The Franklin Shockey Furniture Company of Lexington N.C. has a unique story. Franklin Shockey owned a financial investment firm in NYC. Sometime in 1940 he travelled south with his business partner, George Ennis, to purchase plywood for a small wooden item Mr. Shockey had invented. He fell in love with the beautiful solid woods he found there, purchased a factory, and began making his solid wood furniture. The furniture company became very successful operating into the 1960s. Although the furniture business was successful Mr. Shockey never stopped being involved with his investment firm. In 1980 Franklin Shockey passed at the age of 80.

We know you will love this bed as we do. Make it yours!

Handsome mid-century modern full-size bed with headboard and footboard by Franklin Shockey Furniture from their Sculpted Pine Collection. In wonderful vintage condition with a beautiful age patina. We have not refinished this piece but restored with some touch up to the natural dents and dings due to age and use and applied a new coat of polyurethane for durability. We allowed the beautiful age patina and that of the knotty pine to shine. There is a repair to legs. The original wood side rails were missing, and we have added metal side rails. Please see photos. Circa 1950s.
