Bed Assembly Layout
Nomad Furniture beds have a sturdy slat system to provide firm support when combined with a good mattress. Our slat system removes the need for a box spring and thus lowers the bed to a comfortable height. We offer many different heights to fit your particular need and mattress thickness. All of our beds are easy to both assemble and, later, disassemble for moving. Our beds are very sturdy when assembled. It is easy to move the bed as a whole, just turn the bed on its side, and move it through doorways to other rooms. You can rest on our assurance of a good nights sleep.
All Nomad beds are available in American red oak, hard maple and natural or caramelized bamboo.
We wanted to create a photo set of instructions for you to view to assemble your Nomad bed. We are using the Mission twin bed for our instructions. This are general instructions which help with any Nomad frame assembly. Also use the same principle for the assembly of the headboards with dowels
Step 1: Layout and identify the bed parts
Step 1: Take parts out of the box. All assembly should be on a rug or carpet to prevent scratching the wood as you assemble. Identify the parts. In this picture we have from left to right: slats, rails, center support, drilled crosspieces, slotted crosspieces and headboard slats, and legs.
You will need a #2 Phillips screw driver and a rubber mallet or hammer with a block of wood (in box) to prevent denting. A friend is handy too!
Step 2: Install shoulder screws in crosspieces
Install 4 - 5/8" shoulder screws in headboard and foot-board drilled crosspieces. These shoulder screws will support the center support.
The lower set of screws on the legs attach to the crosspieces, the higher set of screws attach to the side rails. The ends of the crosspieces and rails are tapped down over the screws.
Notice the alignment of the shoulder screws to the end metal in the crosspiece. This is the correct starting position of the two parts when assembling. The crosspiece will be pushed down over the screw and tapped down with a mallet/hammer.
Step 3: Assemble the foot-board.
Attach the drilled crosspiece to the foot-board leg using the lower set of shoulder screws. The shoulder screws on the foot-board face inward. Push the crosspiece down over the shoulder screws.
Step 4: Tap down Crosspiece.
Using a rubber mallet (in a baggie to prevent black marks) or a hammer (using a wood block to prevent damage to crosspiece) tap down crosspiece with firm smacks until snug. We send a block of wood in the packing box for your use.
Attach the other foot-board leg and tap down snug. The foot-board is finished. Place it aside, maybe against the wall.
Step 6: Assemble the head-board
Attach the lower crosspiece, with shoulder screws to the lower set of shoulder screws on one headboard leg. Line up the end of the crosspiece and shoulder screws and tap down snugly. Set aside this assembly. You will add the other leg after you get the head-board attached to this leg.
On the eastern edge of Albuquerque there is a mountain that rises 5000 feet from town. That mountain changes every day and all though the day but it always gives a beautiful Vista to those who live here. The Vista bed was designed knowing that the grain of our Bamboo boards shows its beauty well on a large scale. The main feature of our Vista bed is the solid Bamboo panel that is 20” high and wider than your mattress. That wide Bamboo panel gives a stunning exotic look to the Vista bed that is hard to beat. The Vista bed is 3” higher than our standard beds since the panel extends well above the legs. The Vista bed legs are also available in different heights for different mattress thicknesses.
This Vista bed is NOW AVAILABLE IN OAK, MAPLE, or BAMBOO. Sizes Twin, Double, or Queen.
Vista Mesa Bed
New Mexico is famous for our mesas. Mesas are flat topped hills, made famous in the old western movies, and the old Road Runner cartoons.

Available in Oak, Maple, Light or Dark Bamboo. Available in Twin, Double, or Queen.
