VivaTerra Gustavian Vintage Bed
About 250 years ago, Sweden's King Gustav visited France and returned with a passion for ornate French neoclassical design. Swedish woodworkers tossed out the frou-frou but wisely kept the striking and unusual arched, scalloped furniture silhouettes. Our reclaimed Douglas fir Gustavian headboard adds a contemporary green twist and honors the character of the rare first-growth fir used in its construction. Up to a century old, the rich hue, deep patina and tight grain of the wood-from razed buildings-simply cannot be duplicated in new timber. Our bed is hand-planed to smooth its finish while preserving the distinctive textural appeal of the fir's knots, nail holes and weathering scars. Its light water-based stain, and hard oil wax, both eco-friendly, highlight the fir's singular beauty.
These cubes are made from renewable monkey pod tree wood. They can be placed together for a longer table or apart for bedside tables. The grain looks wonderful when it is in a square shape.
When closet space is an issue, a storage chest is often a nice solution. This one also has a large surface, enough to hold a lamp and plenty of decorations.
