Looking for pine beds? Here you can see the collection of Natural Bed Company beds available in solid pine.
Pine can be clear lacquered (above), or stained White Wash or Wenge (see below).
Over a period of time, depending upon the intensity of daylight available, the colour of natural pine will mellow i.e. become darker. The mellowing of the pine furniture occurs rapidly for about the first 2 years. It then appears to slow down and eventually the furniture will reach full “maturity”. If you are looking to colour match with current furniture please request a timber sample from us. Please note, wood samples should be taken as indicative of the wood and finish. It is not possible to guarantee an exact colour match.

At Natural Bed Company, for our wooden beds, we only use timber from sustainable sources and never use endangered tropical hardwoods. All our timber is from a legally certified source and purchased under the EUTR (European Union Timber Regulation). Our pine is from Scandinavia and our hardwoods – ash, oak, maple, cherry, walnut and beech are from the USA or northern Europe.
Buying timber from managed forests ensures that new trees are planted and the cycle of planting, growth and harvest can continue. We think it is important that the amazing natural resource of timber should be used to make furniture that will last. Many of our customers order their bed in a hardwood. However, we also offer most of our beds in pine! We’re aware that people have different budgets and we want to make our designs as accessible as possible.
Unless otherwise specified, our beds are finished in a durable Natural look (low sheen) lacquer. This provides an easy to care for and durable finish that doesn’t compromise the natural beauty of the wood grain.
Solid woods may expand and shrink slightly with differences in temperature and humidity. Take care not place your furniture next to radiators or anywhere subject to any excessive changes in temperature or moisture content. If you are using our bedside tables – we recommend that any beverages should be placed on mats and spillages should be wiped up immediately to prevent marking.
To clean the wood finish, wipe with a slightly damp cloth and immediately buff with a dry cloth. Silicone based polishes should not be used on the wood too often as they build up and leave a sticky residue on the surface.
