The Smithsonian

This bed is similar to our most popular style The Bullock, but with the fluted sides like the Excalibur.  It features 8 solid Maple raised panel door sections with four drawers underneath.  We took the leg blocks and moved them to the outside of the cabinet on top of a large fluted molding. 

When designing this one the customer requested a fold-out style desk but didn't want it like most on the market where it looks like it is just stuck on there.  I actually designed it with where the desk folds into the fame of the bed.  When open you are seeing the plywood support that the bed sits on.

  This one was designed by a customer and can custom build this with any wood and finish (see FAQ on finishes on finishes).  The crown molding and base molding add a lot of character to this piece.

This version had slightly different bookcaes with the lower section deeper then the top.  It was also made as a built-in.  The Fluting was a nice touch.
