Inspired by Shaker-style furniture, the Dawson Collection is expertly crafted to bring a minimalistic aesthetic to their room. Designed to look like a ship with slatted detailing, this bed is constructed from sturdy solid wood that’s finished by hand in a multi-step process so it lasts. Its lowered profile makes transitioning to a big-kid bed fun for little ones. Plus, it’s GREENGUARD Gold Certified, which means it’s built to contribute to cleaner air for a healthy home.


  • Acorn finish is crafted with solid eucalyptus wood and poplar wood.
  • All wood is kiln-dried, a process that ensures that the furniture will never split, warp, crack or mildew.
  • Finish is applied by hand in multi-step process using child-safe, water-based paints that provide durability, richness and depth of color to each piece.
  • GREENGUARD Gold Certified. Meets or exceeds stringent chemical emissions standards. Learn more.
  • Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility. Learn more.
