All Chadhaus pieces are made to order in our workshop in Ballard, Seattle.
The Loft Bed With Storage features a striking solid wood frame, floating headboard angled for comfort, and on top of that provides the added function of integrated storage with drawers and cubbies. It also happens to be one of the founding designs of our company. We've been making the bed since 2008, when we were commissioned to dream up a bedroom set for a loft space in the 1310 East Union building designed by The Miller Hull Partnership. We worked with clients on designing a bed that would look great in the raw/open loft space, while providing much-needed storage to minimize clutter and keep the space feeling minimal. The result was the Loft Bed (and accompanying Loft Side Tables).
Made from solid wood with steel details, this piece is designed to highlight the grain, color, and texture of the materials we work with. The bed features four drawers (2 on each side) with soft-closing/self-closing hardware for fluid action, as well as a storage cubby on each side.
When you place an order for this or any of our beds, we will work with you to make sure the mattress and any coordinating side tables work together seamlessly. We provide drawings for each client showing their mattress in place prior to making the piece, and can fine-tune any details necessary to optimize the functionality. Need to customize the frame height? Our standard 17" high rails can be adjusted upon request. Contact us for more info.
If you are interested in ordering Twin, Twin XL or Full frames, please contact us.
Pictured in solid walnut with charcoal steel brackets, the bed is available in 5 wood finishes (walnut, oak, maple, oak whitewash and poplar whitewash). Please note, dresser drawer boxes (visible only when the drawers are open) come in walnut, maple or clear oak finishes. The default option for walnut, maple and oak beds is to have matching drawer boxes (walnut, maple and oak respectively) unless requested otherwise. Beds in our poplar whitewash and oak whitewash finishes will have a pleasantly contrasting wood finish when the drawers are open. If you have a preference on the wood finish for your whitewashed bed, please indicate walnut, oak or maple at the time of order or reach out to us directly.
Because we hand-build all of our furniture, each piece has the mark of a hand-made object, and unique characteristics inherent to the natural beauty and variation of real materials.

Where does the product come from?
What is it made of?
Chadhaus furniture features sustainably sourced Pacific Northwest hardwoods and mild steel (primarily recycled steel produced in Seattle). The Big Leaf Maple, White Oak and Black walnut we work with have unique characteristics inherent to how these species of trees react with elements present in the soil in the region. Poplar is a fast-growing species also grown in the Northwest that represents a renewable forestry product, which happens to be beautiful with whitewash. All pieces made for Living Deep feature low VOC, nontoxic finishes. Please contact Chadhaus for questions on finishes and how to care for your product.
Where does it go at the end of its life?
Chadhaus pieces are meant to last and be passed down to the next generation. In some cases people move and their furniture needs change. Pieces that no longer fit into a customer’s life are typically able to find a new home. At the very minimum, Chadhaus pieces are recyclable.
Co-founded in 2006 by Emily and Chad Robertson, Chadhaus is an American furniture and design studio rooted in the belief that objects can be locally sourced, handcrafted, and made to last. Located in the Ballard Brewery District in Seattle, Chadhaus operates out of a small workshop and studio. The team at Chadhaus includes an excellent crew of skilled craftspeople, and we currently have a shop dog as well! Scroll through the images at left for portraits and a little about each member.
From concept to creation, our small-scale operation is the birthplace of thoughtfully designed furniture pieces. We bring a love of good design, fine craft and carefully executed details to each project. At Chadhaus we design and make every object under one roof, allowing us to give each piece of furniture our full attention at each step of the process.
When we design a piece of furniture, we consider how to best create a functional object that showcases the raw beauty of wood and steel. We believe that clean lines and simple forms allow the materials we work with to bring each piece to life with grain, tone, and color.
Chadhaus pieces feature sustainably harvested Pacific Northwest woods and recycled steel manufactured in Seattle. Hand-selecting materials is one of our favorite parts of the process, and we take care to compose each piece of furniture as a three dimensional art object.
