Upholstered platform bed

Happy end of the weekend! I am sitting on my couch in front of the TV, eating a killer BBQ meal and watching Family Guy (my favorite) after an incredibly productive day in the garden. It was the PERFECT day today in Portland - yesterday too! - and it seems that everyone was outside doing something. Towards the end of my gardening time - you could smell the BBQ's firing up all over the neighborhood - there is nothing quite like that smell!

I have been a total slacker this week on the blog-front. But on the upside - I have a whole lot to share....

Tomorrow I am expecting a HUGE delivery of custom furniture for several clients. My favorite piece in the order is a BEAUTIFUL upholstered platform bed. The headboard is very simple, square and 65" tall...outlined with beautiful chrome nailheads - an upholstered platform and square black wood feet. I ordered two of them, I liked the one for the client so much I ordered another one for me! YIPPEE!!!! The fabric I chose for the client is a red and black linen weave linen/poly blend with a few metallic fibers for accent and the fabric I chose for me was the same pattern but without the red, only the black. I had one of these beds on the floor of the shop and took more than a few orders off of it. It really is beautiful and stately.

With my new bed, I will be accenting in orange (of course) with orange sheets from The Company Store and a beautiful white down blanket from Down, Inc., an orange and white Chinese Toile quilt for the foot of the bed by Pottery Barn.....oh and two KILLER orange Robert Abbey triple gourd lamps from my shop - LOVELY!

Lastly......check out this picture of my darling puppy Stella.......she is a Treeing Walker Coonhound...but in this picture doesn't she look like a kangaroo? this picture was after a long hard day at doggy daycare - she goes to Dogs Dig It in Portland - they have a doggy web cam and we can spy on her during the day - It's hard to be the dog!

  5. wow, this platform bed is awesome .Much thanks again. Really Great.

  6. Can u tell me where u found these orange lamps?

  7. HI THERE BRANJEE! The lamp is by Robert Abbey and we well it here through my shop.....pleawse let us know if we can help you!

  8. Wow, an upholstered platform bed - different! From what I've seen, these are usually bare wood, as people go for the minimalist look. But from the picture, this seems to maintain that clean aesthetic but still add a little twist - really cool! Not to mention, bumping a shin into the side of a platform bed softened with padding or fiberfill will feel a whole lot better than banging your bones into hard wood!

  9. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
    because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous
    websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another
    platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
