My top choices originally turned out to be a bit shorter than I had hoped. The bottom of our current bed is 10 inches off the ground and the top of the mattresses wind up being about 34 inches off the ground. We have nice mattresses, but they aren't super tall like some with pillow tops are. I love hopping up into bed. I also like that our bedside tables are higher than the bed. Here's how everything looked in our old condo bedroom:
After I went through every option's measurements, I started to look at fabric options. Many had linen-like options, but a couple were only available in microfiber. I don't think microfiber is quite right for us, so those are coming off the list. I'm looking at you, gorgeous Amelia bed at High Fashion Home.
One came out ahead and it wasn't even on my radar originally. It was a bed by HGTV Home, made by Bassett Furniture. A commenter named Katie suggested it in the comments on my original post.
The bed is tall and has a slew of fabric options. However, when I started googling Bassett Furniture, I found tons of complaints online about the company. However, they were on sites like PissedOffConsumer, so you can imagine that there are no positive reviews to counter the negative ones. Several mentioned that despite the company promoting its base in Bassett, Virginia, much of the furniture is made abroad. All of the pieces in the HGTV collection have icons that say they are made in the US, but There isn't anything in the text descriptions of the furniture that says that.
The only first-hand knowledge I have of this company is that they used to have a store in Charlottesville and they closed it. When they were having their closing sale, I went in and wasn't impressed by the state of the store. They weren't selling floor models, they were taking orders. Everything was just being moved to their Richmond store.
Does anyone have experience with Bassett Furniture?
