As an Airbnb host and designer, I’m always on the lookout for furniture that strikes the perfect balance between style, durability, and affordability. (Check out some of my go-to recommendations for furniture stores.)

But it's always exciting to add someone new to that list and recently, I stumbled upon a gem of a company that ticks all these boxes: Plank+Beam. This American-based brand offers high-quality, solid wood furniture that is not only stylish but also eco-friendly and surprisingly affordable. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces from this brand (and trust me, it is hard to choose!) and then let's dive into why Plank+Beam might be one of the best choices for furnishing your rental.

A commitment to quality and sustainability

Plank+Beam takes pride in crafting furniture from 100% solid wood, avoiding the pitfalls of cheaper MDF alternatives that are both less durable and worse for the environment. Their use of traditional joinery techniques, such as dovetails and mortise and tenon joints, ensures that each piece is built to last, making their furniture an excellent investment for your Airbnb/ short-term rental property.

Moreover, their meticulous 14-step finishing process enhances the natural beauty of the wood while providing scratch resistance without harmful VOCs. This not only prolongs the life of the furniture but also contributes to a healthier living environment for your guests.

Stylish and versatile pieces

One of the standout features of Plank+Beam is its wide range of styles, from rustic to modern minimalist designs. Whether you’re looking to furnish a cozy cabin or a sleek city apartment, their versatile pieces can seamlessly integrate into many decor styles. (And if you're reading that thinking "I have no idea what decor style I'm going for?!" then my style quiz is what you need!)

Affordability without compromise

One of the most impressive aspects of Plank+Beam is their direct-to-consumer model, which cuts out the middleman and allows them to offer high-quality furniture at significantly lower prices than traditional retailers. For instance, you can grab their modern dining table (image below) for just $352 during promotional events, a steal considering the quality and craftsmanship involved.
