5 Best Upholstered Bed Frames With Sustainable Materials
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
We have a hot take…
As much as we love teak furniture and brass fixtures when decorating our homes, there’s nothing quite like crawling into an upholstered bed with silky smooth sheets and soft fabric lining. Our beds essentially level up from a place to rest to a serene oasis!
We’ve rounded up five brands simultaneously prioritizing upholstered designs, sustainable fabrics, and cozy styles– and most offer payment plans, white glove delivery, and exceptional customer service, to boot. (Psst—need a new mattress? Check out our guide to organic mattresses here.)
Effortlessly upgrade your space with these beautiful beds…you’ll thank us later. 😉
Sustainable Materials | Solid hardwood, linen, cotton

Our Pick | Horizon Bed Frame
Price For Queen Frame | $2,200+
Inspired by the aesthetics of its hometown in Venice, California, Parachute’s bed frames are as inviting as they are comfortable. Branded as a “softer take on furniture,” there are three upholstered options available; the Canyon Bed Frame has square edges while the Horizon Bed Frame comes with rounded edges, and the Dune Bed Frame has a split-back. (The Canyon and Horizon also have optional footboards.) Available in gorgeous neutral colors that are calming and cozy, these made-to-order beds are made with linen or cotton linen fabric blends (along with a faux shearling style). Enjoy carbon-neutral shipping, access to monthly payment plans, and the softest night sleep.
Sustainable Materials | Repurposed wood, cork padding, CertiPUR-US certified foam, recycled plastic slats

Our Pick | The Bed
Price For Queen Frame | $1,095+
Thuma’s The Bed has over 13,000 reviews with an aggregate rating of 4.9 out of 5–it’s that good. This thoughtfully designed bed frame comes with either an upholstered pillowboard or a headboard, and we love the linen weave upholstery (available in three colors). You can choose from six sizes, three finishes, and three pillowboard colors for a custom bed that’s all your own. Plus, it’s as sustainable as it is stylish, made with repurposed wood, recycled plastic, and eco-friendly foam. The Bed ships in less than a week and comes with a 100-night risk-free trial (or complimentary return). Starting at just over $1,000, it’s a worthwhile investment that helps you rest easy without breaking the bank.
Sustainable Materials | Sustainably sourced hardwood, cotton or linen blends
Available Sizes | Queen, King, Cal King
Our Pick | Minori
Price For Queen Frame | $1,495+
Saatva has long been a leader in the mattress industry, so it stands to reason that its bedroom furniture would be incredible, too. There are a dozen sustainable styles here made with kiln-dried hardwood and rubberwood. And every design is meant to be elegant and refined, from the Minori’s nailhead trim around the upholstery’s edges to the Marbella’s optional side panels that steal the show. Saatva’s customer service is unparalleled as well, boasting a 365-night home trial, free in-room delivery and assembly, and a lifetime warranty.

Sustainable Materials | FSC certified plywood, eco-solvent finish, OEKO-TEX & Bluesign certified fabrics

Our Pick | Queen Haven Bed Frame
Price For Queen Frame | $1,199+
Inside Weather’s signature bed frame, the Haven can be customized to your heart’s extent. Start with your preferred size, and then choose your wood finish, leg style and height, and fabric (from an inventory of over 200+ colorways and materials)! You can even sort the upholstery type by performance fabrics, pet-resistant fabrics, OEKO-TEX-certified options, and more. Then, everything comes together at Inside Weather’s California warehouse, combining kiln-dried wood legs and FSC-certified plywood. Set up the entire bed in less than 20 minutes–and then hop right in afterward and enjoy that blissful sleep.
5. West Elm
Sustainable Materials | Solid wood, linen & cotton fabrics, iron or brass

Our Pick | Pleated Upholstered Bed

Whether you’re prioritizing space and storage or style and silhouettes, West Elm has plenty of options for you. (Our favorites are the Pleated Upholstered Bed for its timeless design, the Lana Upholstered Bed for its chic look, and the Haven Storage Bed for the pop-up storage.) You can personalize the size, the headboard height, and the fabric to perfectly match your space; if you’re unsure about the colors, West Elm offers free swatches, too. All the beds are made with solid wood legs, iron and brass fixtures, and various fabrics ranging from linen to canvas (many of which are Greenguard Certified!). And given West Elm’s many retail locations, you can often stop by in stores to test these beds out in person before committing!
