This is my second new bed design this year. With the Thorsen Bed I had to put my head back into traditional Greene & Greene – but with this design I could let myself go a bit.
The project was at the request of a client who loved my Freemont Nightstands and wanted a bed to match. The Freemont Nightstand was in turn a client request for nightstands to match my Aurora Chest of Drawers – might have to change Aurora Chest of Drawers to Freemont Chest of Drawers.

Gorgeous – as always. Thanks for continuing to provide inspiration to those of us that follow the G&G style. Someday I hope to be able to build a G&G bed with all of the wonderful details like this one.

Nollie, I farm the finish on my pieces for clients. My finisher mixes the stain using very finely ground pigment and a hybrid top coat . He gets into chemistry every time I ask about it and looses me.
The finish I use for home projects is very similar to the one my finsher uses – you can see the formula on my blog:
