Pier Bed Group is best seller

Co-owners Steve Ardis and Bob Kirkeby started Furniture Traditions with a focus on crafting heirloom quality bedroom furniture and a fierce dedication to customer satisfaction. After 25 years, Furniture Traditions continues that same philosophy, proudly making quality furniture in America.

The company established itself in Orange, California with humble beginnings in Steve Ardis’ garage, where he designed and built their first bedroom set prototype. The pier bed provides maximum storage, in less floor space than a conventional bed and 2 nightstands. Dual reading lamps and secret compartments are just a few of its outstanding features.

In 2003, the optional drawer pedestal was introduced. Replacing the need for a boxspring, this pedestal has lots of storage, where there was none before. Its giant 28″ deep drawers provide more storage than the big dresser!  To date, more than 36,000 people have our drawer pedestals in their home.

After 25 years and over 50,000 sold, the Pier Group has remained enormously successful. So successful in fact, that Steve designed the Mid Wall, a child of the Pier Group and an instant superstar.

If imitation is the sincere form of flattery, then copycats have flattered them to death. What’s hard to copy is what Furniture Traditions does best with their highly experienced, skilled craftsmen—combine quality materials and superior construction methods, to create an heirloom piece that will last for generations.

Panel Beds with Solid Wood Raised Panels are Much Stronger

Panel Beds made in America

American Heritage Panel Bed shown in alder hardwood.

There are generally 2 ways to make panel beds. The cheaper of the two is the “picture frame” method, which is basically a wooden border around a thin piece of particle board or plywood paneling.

At Furniture Traditions, we choose to use the solid wood, raised panel method. While this method is more expensive, the solid wood raised panels are much stronger and last a lot longer.

The raised panels give a strong beauty to a panel bed, that thin pieces of flat paneling just can’t. We use the same manufacturing techniques that our founding fathers used, when crafting high quality furniture made in America. More Photos and More about Panel Beds…

Safe Chest in the bedroom

The biggest attraction to Furniture Tradition’s aptly named Safe Chest is the fingerprint activated safe. In the case of nighttime emergency, having the safe in the bedroom makes sense. People love that they don’t have to remember a combination to open it. No fumbling around in the dark trying to push buttons or remember combinations in an emergency. Your weapons and valuables are secured and family members are protected from accidents. With 2 electrical outlets & a coaxial cable mounted at the back of the chest, this versatile chest can be used to hold up to a 37″ TV. Also featured are 2 concealed pull-out rods for hanging clothes.
