The Gordon platform bed in pineThe Gordon platform bed - rustic looks, artistic vision

Soft, sumptuous pine boards and frame give this platform bed (shown here in California king size) lots of unique, local character. White pine has large red knots and the sapwood turns an interesting blue -- colors you won't see on any other pine furniture. It smells great, too.

5. The Ellis Bed - Connected to Nature

The Ellis custom bed with unique solid wood slab headboardThe Ellis custom bed - curved legsThe Ellis custom bed - artistic hardwood slab headboardThe Ellis custom bed - solid sugar maple headboardThe Ellis custom bed - solid sugar maple headboard

Use your own trees. This customer had big sugar maples in front of their Catskills country house. The contractor who felled them said "don't bother, they are too rotten for lumber" - but we went ahead and had them sawn. The photos don't do the headboard justice: an incredible array of colors, patterns, and depth. Being so old, the rock-hard maple polished up like Italian marble and needs nothing more than wax to seal it. Shown here in full size.

The Dollhouse loft bed - kids bed with play houseThe Dollhouse loft bed - The mattress is upstairs (the chimney serves as headboard)The Dollhouse loft bed - working door and shutters, balcony railing around mattressThe Dollhouse loft bed play house with working door and shutters, balcony railing around mattress

Have kids - or kid at heart? This is what your (inner?) child might dream about. This clever bed features working shutters, a half-height front door, windowsills for placing toys, and two closets (one with doors). A wraparound staircase leads to the bed, which has a “balcony” safety rail. The headboard includes a shelf recessed into the chimney for glasses and a book.

My customer’s kids liked it so much, her son was jealous of his lucky sister. The possibilities are endless: a castle, an airplane, a boat… just ask your kids for their own ideas!
