I don’t normally do prototypes, but when your doing several beds you may want to work out the bugs before you get into mass producing the parts. It’s a prototype and a selling item. I haven’t really sold the job yet. I’m pretty sure I will and if I don’t, I’ll leave this on on the showroom floor as an example of my work. I always need more of my stuff in our showroom.
This one will probably stay on the showroom floor. This is finished with a standard lacquer finish. The requirement for this job is that all beds must have a class A1 fire retardant finish.
It is a simple design. I used beadboard to give it some visual interest. We added drawers under the bed for storage. Normally I do 3 drawers across, but this customer like my Chi Omega designs, so I adapted their 4 drawer design to this one. The drawers really sturdy these beds up. The slats are sitting direction on the drawers and the entire unit connect to form one solid piece of furniture.
