When it comes to high-quality bedroom furniture that stands the test of time, Vaughan Bassett looms large. Their style might be described as classic, with a touch of modernity. As one of our premium furniture brands, City Mattress is proud to introduce you to the timeless style of Vaughan-Bassett.

About Vaughan Bassett

Vaughan-Bassett got its start in the mountains of Virginia. Founded in 1919 by B.C. Vaughan and J.D. Bassett, Sr., the company focused its efforts on bedroom furniture. If Bassett rings a bell when discussing furniture, it’s because J.D. Bassett, Sr. also founded what is today known as Bassett Furniture Industries, along with his brother, C.C. Bassett. 

Today Vaughan Bassett employs about 700 people in factories based in Galax, Virginia, and Elkin, North Carolina. This means that their bedroom furniture is proudly made in the United States by American workers. Furthermore, 99% of their lumber is sustainably harvested within 500 miles of their factories. In fact, over 1.5 million trees have been planted on their behalf by the Virginia Department of Forestry since 2007.

Vaughan-Bassett Bedroom Furniture

There’s a lot to love about Vaughan Bassett’s bedroom furniture. With rustic styling and natural beauty being the centerpieces of design, these pieces can complement most any decor. 

Dovetail Series Bedroom Furniture from Vaughan-Bassett

Vaughan-Bassett Dovetail Sun Bleached White Wood Poster Bed

The Dovetail series of bedroom furniture from Vaughan-Bassett is an excellent example of the brand’s artistry. Featuring exposed dovetails in the style of ancient Egyptian furniture, these pieces have a truly timeless look. For instance, the Dovetail Sun Bleached White Wood Poster Bed showcases the inherent, natural beauty of wood. Vaughan Bassett’s patent-pending ATAP™ Technology (Accelerate The Aging Process) brilliantly highlights any splits, cracks, and knots, as well as the bold woodgrain pattern so characteristic of American White Oak.

Complementing the bed, the Dovetail Sun Bleached White 2-Drawer Nightstand belongs at its side. It features the same exposed dovetail joinery, and two stacked, self-closing drawers for plenty of bedside storage. For your main storage, the Dovetail Sun Bleached White 8-Drawer Wood Dresser has eight drawers for plentiful space, owing largely to its 60 inches of length. A matching mirror can be purchased separately to complete the look.

If exposed dovetails and well-aged wood sounds appealing, but you’d rather a darker look, this series also comes in Mystic Grey. The Dovetail Mystic Grey Wood Poster Bed shares all of the same traits as its Sun Bleached White sibling, but in a darker finish that still beautifully highlights the features of the wood. Likewise, there are Mystic Grey finished versions of every Dovetail series piece.

Sawmill Series Bedroom Furniture from Vaughan Bassett

Vaughan Bassett brings an antique style and weathered look to the bedroom with their Sawmill collection. The Sawmill Arch Bed comes in an alabaster two-tone finish, which brings out the natural qualities of the pine and poplar woods. It also features simple lines and a streamlined silhouette. Meanwhile, the Sawmill Louver Bed comes in a darker, distressed finish, and has louvered detailing on the headboard. Either of these rustic beds are at home with the rest of the Sawmill series.

The Sawmill Nightstand pairs well with either Sawmill Bed, thanks to Vaughan-Bassett’s choice of design. The nightstand’s top is finished to match the darker Louver bed, while the body sports the Arch Bed’s alabaster look. With two drawers of bedside storage, this nightstand lives to serve while adding rustic appeal. Likewise, the Sawmill Chest brings the same dual finish, while the four large drawers and a set of two smaller drawers grant ample extra storage. Lastly, the Sawmill Dresser finishes the look with plenty of space for your clothes and other essentials. A matching mirror is available separately. 

Bonanza Mansion Beds from Vaughan-Bassett

Our last examples for this article offer a minimal, Shaker-inspired look for your bedroom. We start with the Bonanza Mansion White Wood Panel Low Profile Bed, featuring classic recessed panels in the headboard and footboard. Simple and elegant moldings highlight the otherwise minimalist style. Finished in classic white, this bed gives a sense of a time long past, tempting your mind to relax and unwind. For a darker alternative, the Bonanza Mansion Gray Wood Panel Low Profile Bed has all of the same features, but is finished in a neutral gray.
