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.
This bed resembles one from 250 years back! The shape gives it a slightly feminine feel, while the wood makes it masculine. Perfect for a couple who finds it hard to agree on the perfect bed.
GORGEOUS!! Probably the best combination of modern and rustic with a touch of chic! I simply cannot stop drooling... so beautiful!
