For my first attempt at furniture design I chose a King-size bed. I had done months of research in deciding what kind of style I wanted to emulate and would fit with our mid-century ranch home. The floating nightstands and overall style were heavily influenced by a variety of Danish modern designs. After many rounds of sketching, I built several versions in Google Sketchup. After a few more revisions I built out scale blueprints for each component in Adobe illustrator. Then, I worked with a friend and excellent craftsman, Josh Gallaty of Gallaty Woodworks of Bend, Oregon to bring my creation to life.
The frame and slatted headboard is constructed from solid Alder with a Walnut stained finish.
The legs and drawer pulls are made from sandblasted tube steel and have been left unfinished for a raw but modern look.
