The Elite Expressions Bookcase Bed will help you organize all your books, mementos, and personal accessories around and underneath your bed. It consists of five main components: panel bed frame, under-bed drawer box, bridge with shelves, and two bookcase piers. The panel headboard and footboard feature thick, handsome frames, while the slat roll mattress support system is made up of evenly spaced wooden slats that run the whole length of the bed. This system provides all the support your mattress will need, so you won't even need a box spring. The convenient under-bed drawer box has two open shelves and two smooth-gliding drawers. The drawers feature heavy drawer front frames, which act as handles and create a subtle, geometric design.
A bridge with shelves stretches above the headboard and connects the two bookcase piers. The bridge has two wide shelves (including the top surface) and two sliding doors with open compartments. You can hide or reveal whichever portion of this shelf you want, and a wire management hole makes it easy to hook up an alarm clock or stereo. The two bookcase piers each have five fixed shelves that can accommodate numerous books and decorative accents.
An optional 5-drawer chest with framed drawer front handles, a removable divider in the top drawer , and English dovetail construction for superior strength is available with The Elite Expressions Bookcase Bed. A nightstand with one large open storage shelf and one drawer with framed drawer front handles is available as an option with this bed, too.
Part of Lea's Elite Expressions collection, this bookcase storage bed is crafted from select cherry veneers with warm undertones and matched cherry veneer drawer fronts. The root beer cherry color finish is the result of an extensive, multi-step finishing process. This versatile bed offers lasting style that works for youth, teen, and even smaller master bedroom settings. Available in your choice of sizes.
What makes this collection elite: The Lea Elite Collections are crafted from high quality materials usually associated with more expensive, heirloom quality furniture. Pattern veneers, inlays, and matched veneer drawer fronts are a few characters that set these collections apart from the rest. The multi-step finishing process begins with hand-selected veneers and involves as many as seven different spray applications and as many as eight additional hand applications. Together, these layers create a high-luster finish that accentuates the wood veneers. All finishes are lead-free, child-safe, and meet US safety requirements.
Dependable Bed Construction: All Elite Collections beds feature metal connectors that prevent unintentional rail detachment and provide strength and lasting durability. Slat roll mattress support systems come standard with bunk beds, loft beds, and platform beds to provide reliable mattress support without the need for a box spring or bunkie board. Each slat fastens with a screw, which increases the structural integrity of the bed. Most twin and full size Elite Collections beds have under-bed storage options, including deep drawers or dual-function trundle/storage units, that take advantage of unused space under the bed.
Superior drawer construction: The deep under-bed drawers feature traditional English dovetail construction on drawer fronts and drawer backs, providing more strength and durability than commonly used French dovetail or box joints. Drawer parts are hand-sanded and finished with a stained, protective top coat to create a smooth, snag-free interior. Drawer bottoms are reinforced by corner blocks and center rails for greater stability.
The drawers operate smoothly on full-extension drawer guides with steel ball bearings that provide easy, one-handed operation and better drawer stability than standard center-mounted drawer guides. Because the drawers extend completely out of the case, you have easier access to the contents of the drawer - even way in the back. Automatic drawer stops prevent drawers from falling out. Select drawers include special features, such as aromatic cedar bottoms or removable drawer dividers.
