Furniture: What is better for a bed- MDF, Rubber wood or Sheesham wood? Why?

All three have their place and there are dozens of other materials that could be used as well.

MDF is generally frowned upon since it is basically compressed sawdust with a thin veneer glued to its surfaces, but from a purely utilitarian point of view it can be perfectly serviceable for a bed that is being used for only a year or two or three.

For heirloom quality furniture, none of the three materials asked about in this question would be suitable.
