Read our FAQs

How is The Thompson’s wood frame constructed? What finish options are available?

The Thompson's frame is hand-carved with rounded corner detailing from solid ash wood, domestically sourced from sustainable forests in the eastern United States, and kiln-dried to prevent warping and splitting over time. From raw materials to joinery to finish, The Thompson is refined by hand to bring out the inherent character and natural beauty of its solid ash wood frame–designed to age over time to masterful perfection.

The Thompson’s frame is completed with your choice of seven finishes for a bespoke piece tailored to your space. For a silky matte feel, choose handwaxed Natural Ash to highlight the natural grain and character of the wood. Or, select from six lacquered hues for a custom stain with added protection. Due to the natural materials used, each piece will possess a unique, one-of-a-kind character and may slightly vary.

Can I order wood finish samples?

Wood finish samples for The Thompson are available for order here. Please note, variation in grain and texture is to be expected between your wood sample and final piece, given the natural materials used. We’ll be happy to refund your swatch purchase less 10% for handling if returned within 30 days of the original ship date.

What is the difference between having a fully upholstered headboard on The Thompson and a headboard with muslin on the reverse side?

We offer two options for headboard upholstery–one in which the back is fully upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather, and one with a black muslin upholstered onto the back. If you plan to place your bed against a wall, you may opt for muslin upholstery on reverse; however, if you are floating your bed in a space, full upholstery is the right choice.

What kind of support is included for my mattress? Are any other components necessary?

The Thompson Bed is made with a system of hardwood slats milled from solid poplar wood. Each slat is 2.25” wide and spaced 3” apart along the foundation of the bed, and additionally secured with center support legs (1 for Queen sizes, 2 for King and Cal King). 

With this highly durable foundation, Maiden Home beds do not require a box spring; however, a box spring can be accommodated if preferred.

Can I use an adjustable mattress or frame with The Thompson?

Our beds were designed for use with our support system in mind, however many customers have used alternative support systems with success. 

We are not able to confirm the compatibility of specific systems with Maiden Home frames. Please refer to our Bed Dimensions PDF for dimensions of the bed cavity to determine if your specific system will be compatible.

If you are interested in using an adjustable base, our design team can create a custom invoice for your order at This custom bed will be crafted without the interior side rails and will provide the open cavity needed to use your own support system. Please note that using any support system other than the one that Maiden Home provides will void your warranty.

What is the recommended mattress height?

The Thompson Bed has a two inch inset into the frame for a mattress. Our styling recommendation for The Thompson Bed is a mattress between ten and twelve inches high. With a mattress at this height, there will be approximately eight to ten inches of the mattress exposed.

Will my mattress fit within the Thompson Bed?

The Thompson Bed is designed to fit most standard mattresses of the corresponding size, with an additional inch of length and width included to accommodate different types of bedding and slight differences in sizing between different mattress types. Our Bed Dimensions PDF includes the full dimensions for interior mattress space for your reference. We recommend comparing the dimensions of your mattress with this measurement to confirm fit.

Can I order The Thompson Bed as a headboard?

No, our beds are only available to order as a complete bed with the side rails and footboard.

Beautiful Thompson King Bed

Love, love, LOVE my new Thompson bed! I was concerned that it might not be solidly constructed enough to prevent movement but no issue there. The wood and finish are gorgeous and flawless. The upholstery is absolute perfection. There are two very minor complaints which I think I can work around… 1) the 2 inch inset makes it a bit difficult to reach under and lift my king mattress when making the bed. Answer? A 2 inch high bunky board. 2) my existing mattress slightly reveals the slats at the corners, in other words the mattress doesn’t fit perfectly, it’s a tad small for the space provided for the bed. Answer?… 1) thick enough bedding that will fill the majority of those spaces or 2) get over it! I admit I’m a relentless perfectionist. The delivery duo did a superior job of bringing the parts in without marring the new paint in my foyer and stairway (unlike the movers who gouged the walls and window woodwork) and put the bed together in no time and with great skill. Plus, they were extra friendly despite their heavy delivery schedule. All in all an exceptional purchase and installation experience. I highly recommend this piece. Thank you Maiden Home!

Finishes the Bedroom

I've wanted an upholstered headboard for a very long time with the matching side finished but nothing I saw on retail was satisfactory. It wasn't until we discovered Maiden Home that we felt the Thompson Bed would look just right in our new home. After months of ordering fabric and wood samples we came up with the exact right combination and we are thrilled and delighted with our purchase. The bed is gorgeous and comfortable and makes our bedroom warm and inviting. And an added bonus was it came earlier than expected. We are so happy and the people at Maiden Home were beyond easy to work with. No issues at all. If you are considering ordering, go ahead and take the plunge. You won't regret it.

LOVE this bed!

Ordered the Thompson bed and received it faster than estimated. The quality is amazing and the customer service was phenomenal throughout the entire process. This bed is beautiful and the craftmanship of is amazing. Worth every penny.

This Was The Best!

I looked for months for a "forever" bed. I seemed to have put everything else in front of buying the bed I really wanted, so it was a year-long search. I'm from NC and have shopped the Highpoint Furniture Market, but it can be so overwhelming. Then I found Maiden Home. Hand-crafted in NC! I was excited. They had one bed that filled all my requirements - by this point I was a bed expert! It had slats so I didn't need a boxspring although I could have a foundation if I wanted. They sent me fabric swatches so I got to pick and actually feel the fabric. It took a couple of months, but actually came earlier than I expected. It was brought in and set up expertly! And is it beautiful! I love everything about it. I'm glad I searched and found this company and this amazing bed. (Thompson bed.)
