This bed design was developed from a clients desire to sit up in bed and read. They requested that the headboard curve to provide a softer backrest. After having the clients come into my shop and sit against a mocked-up curve that I could adjust, the final most comfortable radius was determined. The headboards curved frame and panel elements, combined with the contrast of the stunning Claro Walnut veneer and solid Jatoba wood, provide just enough contemporary flare. Shown in a queen size.
Jatoba is grown in South America and is sometimes referred to as Brazilian cherry even though it is not related to cherry wood. It is a hardwood with a dense grain and mahogany-like color, making it an ideal wood for fine furniture.
American black walnut grows in the Eastern US and Canada. It is a popular domestic hardwood with a naturally dark color varying from a purplish brown to a rich red brown.
Found in Northern California and Oregon, claro walnut is highly figured with a rich brown color and striking grain patterns, especially in the crotch areas, where large limbs meet the trunk.
