What's the difference between pine and birch wood as a bed material?

Pine is a slightly softer wood, and our pine beds are coated in beeswax. Birch is a heavier, stronger wood; from a visual perspective, it is lighter in color and you will see less of the wood grain.

Why should I use slats or a box spring under my mattress?

Slats or a box spring create a stable and even foundation for your mattress. This support helps distribute your body weight more evenly, reducing stress on the mattress and preventing premature sagging or wear. They also provide space for mattress ventilation, which prolongs the life of your mattress and is especially important for those with allergies, in colder or variable climates, and high humidity.
