Description: A queen-size bed with headboard, attached nightstands with drawers and four large trundle drawers embedded in the frame. All these units disassemble for moving. Continuous carving swoops around the headboard, down along the night stands and around the perimeter of the frame, pulling the bed into one sculptural whole. As the carving passes the trundle drawers it serves as handles for the drawers. The bed frame sits on a recessed base which gives this extremely heavy piece of furniture a delicate, floating look.
