Teak Opium Bed
I have a commercial building I've been renovating and have used it as event space here and there over time. On one of the floors, I tossed in a Moroccan lounge, mainly because the yards and yards of sari fabric I had hanging around covered the unfinished walls so easily. Thank god for staple guns. Whoo hoo staple guns. Also in that room? A couple of opium beds, a Chinese marriage bed and even- ready for it?- a rickshaw. I have a great guy, Eli, who owns ArtAsia in Milwaukee (see separate rec) and he brings several shipments a year back from his travels to his shop. With that said, the price of the beds at this online store is just about the best I've seen. Checking Ebay just now, I found a similar style for $300 more. These bed make fabulously flexible and customizable options for seating in your den, at an event, in the yard....in fact, they're one of my favorite things.
