I like all the curves, plus the different woods, and the sides to hold the springs/mattress.
Very well done! Thanks for posting.

beautiful. A shame they’ll have to hide it under bedding. ;)

the headboard speaks for itself, that just great.
however, I absolutly love the look of the platform. Like scottb mentions, it’s a shame it’s going to be covered by bedding.
fantastic work.

Beautiful headboard and bed base. The shape is unique and the shape works really well.
