Art Nouveau Bed Frame retrofit by ou8nrtist2 Art Nouveau Bed Frame retrofit by ou8nrtist2
I sold this before Christmas with a promise to retrofit it to a California King Size.My client is quite tall and has kids and a dog. I know at some point they'll all be in this bed,thus the thing must be strong and not fall apart... It turned into a pretty major operation but it's for a good friend so I really don't mind making the extra effort.
All forged steel.Everything bolts together.
The theme for the piece was an ode to Poseidon. His symbol (the trident) is evident in the center of the headboard and those are chambered nautilus shells at the top.
I enjoy making fantasy beds now and then. I'm thinking maybe Gothic for the next one...

Very VERY nice work, Metalwork is one thing I've never been able to incorporate into my projects, can't afford to drop lots of cash to go to night school to learn welding and don't know anyone who would teach. SO it's wood and stone for me for now.

This gives me a feeling of what Captain Nemo's bed might have been like.

That was such a fun project because I love to design in the Art Nouveau vernacular but also because it was commissioned by a good friend...

You know what, you've helped me make a decision. I designed & made a steampunk bed but I never posted it. I think I will now. Thanks.

& btw, you're welcome.
