I'm currently making my own platform bed. I've been meaning to post some pics up here. I agree about mixing it up, there is way too much cool furniture out there to not enjoy.

I know it's not really period appropriate, but my bedroom furniture is a Lane Altavista set heavily inspired (if not contract-designed) by Paul Evans:
Image
My set is similar to than the dresser shown above, but in a dark walnut veneer and with nicer details; it includes headboard, dresser, side tables, and armoire (shown below):
Image
These frequently show up on ebay in a variety of designs, most of them with a very typical Paul Evans look. Here's one listed right now:

Here's a danish-modern inspired Lane headboard for $299:

Paul McCobb made some contract sets for Lane, and those also pop up periodically for auction. Here's one set of nightstands on 1stdibs:

gahhh beautiful beds!

Postby Slim and Gabby » Sat Jun 28, 2008 5:20 pm

We don't NEED any more bedroom furniture ( a sort of generic cottagey blond maple set in the guest room, basic scandi designs dark stain in the master bedroom). But I too have been Jonesing on some of the great bedroom sets.

I have nothing against platform beds, but they just don't ring my chimes. I SHOULD like the extra storage, but somehow a platform just doesn't feel really grown up to me.

Until I saw this beauty on Ebay...hubba hubba!

I'm always looking for a more sculptural set like Miquel posted a while back.
I've lost a few on e-bay...
Not in a hurry. What i have is fine.
I need more storage bedside. (allergies, three alarm clocks :) aspirin, etc...)

These designs remind me of some Ponti's case goods, which in my mind are the most beautiful "sculptural" pieces around (If only I had an extra couple hundred grand to blow)

sculptural is soooo good....

Postby Slim and Gabby » Sun Jun 29, 2008 3:36 pm

I like the clean lines of the Ponti-esque ones.

But I really do like what Miguel is showing. And from what I've seen of your home, they really look just right. I can see that swell texture and instantly think of the ceramic work on the exterior of your house. I'm often in Fresno and get really jazzed whenever I see that Duncan influenced public art around and about. Totally see the connection there!

Agh. One more thing to jones about-clearly this is going on the 'to-do' list.....

Brutal is right!

Postby Slim and Gabby » Mon Jun 30, 2008 8:39 am

Miguel:

Brutal is SO the descriptive word here. Love the aesthetic.
Just not sure I'd want to wake up within inches of it. Ow!
I'm a big nighttime reader- you'd need a LOT of pillow to snuggle up in that.


Looks really cool, though......

Lane is looking so clean and nice...

Postby Slim and Gabby » Sun Jul 06, 2008 1:05 pm

Having a little fun on EBay-lotsa nice clean Lane stuff, and that Broyhill Brazilia is pretty cool, probably still too massive for our small bedrooms....


have NO idea the maker of this one, but it's a beauty....
And such a small footprint for so much storage...sigh.

Image

Now to find a whole SET like that.....hm..

Done!

Postby Tikifrog » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:58 am

A few...months ago (only 4) I posted a drawing for a bed project. Here is the bed!
The project wasn't without problems.
I planned to build it of Walnut wood, it is kiln dried pine, a lot easier to find and cheaper for a 'prototype' (I am more a handyman than a wood worker). Problem is the grain didn't look so good. After different stain trials, I ended up spray painting it! (That's not sooo bad).
Another concern was with the comforter and pillows on, the headboard looked a bit too low. I eventually rised it with spacer for a floating look. We actually like it better this way and it is great to hide the chords.

Broyhill Brasilia Line

We recently discovered this after having an entire bedroom of Wakefield furniture. There is a dealer back east who has any piece from the line that you would ever want.
