Portfolio: Asian Inspired Walnut Bed

I’m strongly drawn to the simple elegance of Asian design. This bed and matching nightstands is a marriage of traditional American furniture style and subtle Asian curves. The client for these pieces was equally drawn to this design aesthetic and so this bedroom set was born.

Claro walnut from the west coast is one of my favorite woods for its rich, beautiful color. The wood used for this queen size bed was particularly beautiful, with a nice variation of color and some great figure. The contrast of the intricate head board and simple foot board adds visual interest to the design and the wide side rails add a feeling of mass. The use of a colorful comforter matched with the rich, dark walnut really makes this bed spectacular.
