This is the very first bed that we have ever created, it is a custom order. This bed is meant to have a “floating” look it and is made from Claro Walnut. It is mounted on a steel frame so that it free stands and will not have to be attached to the wall. The mattress is at a 2.5” slope…. requested by the customer.

Each drawer will have hidden electrical boxes so that cords and wiring will be hidden for lamps, phones and clocks….

It fits a California king mattress, the top of the side drawers are 29” from the ground, the mattress will be even with the side tables and there will be no box springs. The Walnut slab measures 12’ by 4’ and it stands almost 5’ on the frame.

It is finished with Seal A Cell oil finish.

WOW! That is a stunning bedframe. That is a great way to hold up that massive slab head board. Speaking of slabs, that one is incredible!

Wow I have never seen anything like it . I see that the wood used is really lovely but the dimensions design doesn’t work for me sorry .The headboard I feel is too big and clumsy looking proportionally for the rest of it.Sorry just my own opinion of course Alistair
