This bed was created for a long time customer that normally goes with mesquite wood. But she wanted a wood that really stood out for her bed. Bubinga ended up being that wood. We used highly figured bubinga veneer for the panels on both the bed and nightstands. Long rails of bubinga were used for the mattress to sit on, giving it a platform look. The nightstands were designed around her needs, but we were given design leeway to make any changes we felt were needed on the bed and nightstands. This was a fun project to make and we are so glad to finally have a bed in our portfolio. Wish we could have had it professionally shot, but there was no time. It was a real hit at the Denver show, where we displayed it, before delivering to our customer. We hope to create one out of mesquite for a show coming up. We’ll see if time permits.
