About Night & Day Furniture:
Founded by Mike Gallawa, Night & Day's earliest focus had been futon furniture. With innovations that included Shoe Fittings™, Snapper™, Sea Horse™ and futon operating system, the manufacturer was able to carve out their own unique niche in furniture design from within the futon industry. Night & Day expanded on futon offerings by creating a new line of bedroom furnishings. Collections of beds, nightstands, dressers, chests and mirrors are available in a variety of designs. Night & Day believes in bringing furniture to people that they themselves would want in their own homes. Construction methods that include mortise and tenon joints ensure that your furniture will last. Construction & Materials Information:
Night & Day platform beds are beautifully finished with automated and hand-rubbed techniques for a rich and durable finish. Made from solid eco-friendly plantation grown rubberwood which is a member of the maple family of woods and has a dense grain which helps in the kiln drying process. This hardwood species is sourced from the rubber tree. These trees are economical and easy on the Earth's eco-system and here is why. After 30 years, a decline in latex production has made only tapping rubber trees for their sap uneconomic. The trees are removed by hand and replaced with new seedlings. In the past, felled rubber trees were either burnt on the spot or used as fuel for locomotive engines, brick firing or latex curing. The wood is now used in the manufacture of high-end furniture. It is valued for its dense grain, stability, attractive color and acceptance of different finishes. It is also prized as an “environmentally friendly” wood, since it makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycle and are always replaced with new seedlings. Night & Day platform beds and casegoods make full use of this eco-friendly species of hardwood that can be found in every bed and casegood. Night & Day beds come complete with 10 pcs of 1x4" solid wood mattress support slats, and are supported down the center with a rail and foot support system. Made in Malaysia.
