    So far the solid wood is keeping the super heavy Purple mattress supported. Thank you Brendan! The holes made it easier to move.

    We love our bed! It is simply beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Brendan was very communicative and updated us on the progress of the bed. Unfortunately the frame was slightly damaged during shipping. There are two dents on the headboard but you don’t notice it unless you’re looking for it. The only downside is Brendan can’t do anything to fix it since he’s in Canada and I’m not. He was very apologetic. Thanks for your hard work Brendan! Keep making beautiful things!

    The bed turned out amazing! It's absolutely beautiful and was simple and intuitive to put together. Brendan was responsive and very thorough and professional in all correspondence. The who process was a very good experience and I recommend Opposite Hand to anyone who wants unique high quality bedframes

    The bed is a handmade well-packaged beautifully designed work of quality art exceeding all of my expectations. Brendan's communication was friendly, knowledgeable, and understanding. His attention to detail is impeccable. He is able to adapt his base design to specifications which truly makes for a unique bed. It was a wonderful purchasing experience, and now I cannot imagine ever buying a plain manufactured bed from a store again.

    This bed is perfect - beautiful design, well made, and easy to assemble. Brendon was first class in communicating expectations and reassuring in the step by step process when shipping to the states (it can be a headache but he made it a breeze) ✊

    Exceeded my expectations…. Brendan was really upfront about entire process. Beds were exactly as I pictured. I bought 2 and I can’t decide which I actually love more. Assembly was easy (of course with my Dad’s help…. Haha). Would buy more in a heartbeat. Love love love everything about Brendan and his art work/business. To see video that sums up my experience, go to… https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZTR5trE1T/ Etsy won’t allow videos, but I made a TikTok because I was so excited!!!

    If you are looking for that special piece of furniture to have forever (even pass down to family) this is the piece! This bed is gorgeous and well crafted. Brendan was incredibly easy to work with (I live in the high desert which affects wood) and everything was exactly as he stated. I even managed to assemble the bed by myself! I'm a newly single woman and I just moved into my own apartment (I did have help moving it). I am so pleased with this bed I have even named it (as if it were a ship). Thank you Brendan for your meticulous work!

    I have only good things to say about the bed that we ordered from Opposite Hand - it was meticulously designed and carefully packed; it is a beautiful addition to our room. Brandon was kind and attentive throughout all of our exchanges. The work is durable, and it was carefully packed in shipping.

    Brenden will make you feel like you’re the only one he is making a bed for. Very communicative and expresses loads of unexpected gratitude for supporting his craft. Speaking of craft; he has perfected these beds and you will feel his care when you have the completed bed. I know my two Maine Coons are thankful. They are senior cats that love this lower profile with the edge as a step. Don’t hesitate, just do it!

    WOW! Just wow. This piece is an amazing addition to my home. It blends well with many of my mid-century pieces and my Design Within Reach pieces. Brendan was super communicative through the process and went above and beyond with some additions. There was certainly a wait BUT 'good things come to those who wait. He packaged the piece really well so no issues in shipping. Brendan is a true craftsman and I can't wait to order another piece! If you're even thinking about buying a piece...HURRY! Don't wait silly!

More than Just a Bed

If you asked Brendan what he did he’d merely say “I am a maker, my medium just happens to be wood”. His hand as an artist met with that of a builder when he began working as a residential framer throughout his high school and later college years studying Architectural Design. After 8 years as an Architectural design Tech. working on both residential and commercial projects he was quick to realize the industry wasn’t serving him. He incorporated himself as a business so he could work less hours while completing woodworking projects by referral on the side. Within two years time his hobby was a full time gig & in the summer of 2017 he decided finally to leave his place in the office – his heart was in the creative freedom provided by his shop working with his hands.

OPPOSITEHAND Design Inc. from then on became fully a maker business. His focus on bedframes comes from years of travelling and study of different healing modalities and their affects on the subconscious and our dreams. The bedframe holds more importance than just a furnishing to him – it is a space that holds you at the beginning and offset of your day – it is where your subconscious unfolds into a dream. He ultimately believes they are more important than we credit them for.

With all Brendans furnishings, he tries to incorporate a story. In his work completing custom commissions he finds himself with lasting friendships. He believes in the process of getting to know his clients at a deeper level so that the result is a piece both reflective of the clients life and aesthetic of their home.

Frequently asked questions

How do I determine the dimensions of your bedframes?

The standard platform style frame (my most popular design in majority of my listings) has the following dimensions:
1. Headboard Width (with nightstands): Mattress Width + 30" (Headboards WITHOUT nightstands are your mattress width + 9.5")
2. Headboard Height: 45"
3. Platform Width: Mattress Width + 9.5 (*This is with a 4.75" exposed ledge each side)
4. Bed Length: Mattress length + 10"
5. Platform Height: Standard height is 12”. I can increase this to as high as 14" (at cost).

Can I make customizations?

Yes! Please describe in detail what you are looking for. Note however that the average customization is an increased cost of $250CAD. Please inquire about my current workload at the time of your order as I only accept customized bedframes if I have the time. If your customization is only regarding the headboard design than I will wave the fee as this does not carry through to the below.

Why the increased cost?

Customizations affect mostly shipping/brokerage/packing. I have standard sizes for a reason. My boxed bedframes fit into specific shipping categories, and when they are altered my costs as well as time to create custom boxes and custom brokerage forms is also increased apart from the time attributed to working on the new design.

Are there any additional fees if I am ordering outside of Canada?

I currently only ship to Canada and the USA.
If you are a US resident I have made it so all the costs associated to packing, shipping, customs, brokerage are billed to my business. The only additional fee you will be charged (for both Canadadian and USA Residents) with be your provincial / state tax.

There are currently none available of the bed I want - when will it be available?

All of my bedframes are made to order.

If a listing says "0" available it is likely that I have too many orders at that time so am controlling my intake. I try never to accept more than 15 bed orders at a time for my own sanity.

If the bed you'd like is not available send me a message - it is likely because I want you to understand that my wait times are longer than normal, however if you are OKAY with this I will update the listing so you can place your order.

My room is extremely small - can we change the design so it fits?

Certainly. Provide me the dimensions and we can re-design any of my models to make sure it fits comfortably.

Question Regarding Stains

I only use standard stains from standard stain pallets (Ie: Minwax, etc.). No custom stains are made and if they are it is at extra cost. Note that stains appear different in different lighting. *BEDS CLAD IN PINE WILL APPEAR LIGHTER IN TONE WHEN EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT OPPOSED TO ROOM LIGHTING - COMMON ON MANY OF MY BED LISTINGS*. If you are trying to match a specific tone or are wondering about the final look of a bed please start the discussion. I can not promise the your bed will appear exactly as is shown in my listings when in your own space.

I have a boxspring - can you design it so it fits?

The slat support system of my bedframes is designed to meet majority of mattress manufacturers guidelines. A boxspring is not required in most situations. If you are adamant on including your boxspring we can certainly accommodate, just please note that your mattress might sit quite high thereby covering most of your headboard.

How long does it take to make and ship a bed?

A standard bed will take me 1.5 weeks to complete. This includes everything from material order down to the final finishing, wrapping and boxing of your bed.

*Note - I am usually building 3 bedframes at once to make better use of materials and time, so build time is dependent on the number of orders in que at the time of your order.

Based on previous orders a bed will take anywhere from 7-14 days to ship. This is dependant on your state/province. Due to COVID my lead times for shipping have been crazy! So have a little patience, your beautiful handmade sleeper will be completely worth the wait!

Question on Stains:

I only use standard stains from standard stain pallets (Ie: Minwax, etc.). No custom stains are made and if they are it is at extra cost. Note that stains appear different in different lighting. *BEDS CLAD IN PINE WILL APPEAR LIGHTER IN TONE WHEN EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT OPPOSED TO ROOM LIGHTING - COMMON ON MANY OF MY BED LISTINGS*. If you are trying to match a specific tone or are wondering about the final look of a bed please start the discussion. I can not promise the your bed will appear exactly as is shown in my listings when in your own space.

Custom and personalised orders

Certainly! I love to come up with new artwork & actually prefer not to replicate anything i've created previously. Please ask / start the discussion.
