I was browsing through 1st Dibbs today and ran across this fantastic Billy Baldwin upholstered bed still wearing its original kelly green velvet upholstery. I would love to know the back story behind this bed. Who was it made for? - where did it live? - what did it see???- what did it's bedroom look like?
I was really struck by how current the design remains as is evident by the many new chair-back beds available on the market today.
This is my favorite from Hickory White. I like the furniture legs at the base of the platform and the nail heads.
This bed has a small arm on each side as well as a wing back. It is really taking the chair design to the fullest.
Jay Jeffers seems to be a big fan of this style bed and he uses them to great effect in many of his rooms.
Oly Studio has a sleek modern version.
Transitional Charles P Rogers in leather.
Love the top of the wing backs on this model by Charles P Rogers.
If our furniture could talk what would it say about us? My furniture would be pretty boring, how about yours?
