Highland King Bed, In Ash

We were asked to build beds for "Brantwoode'", one of Scotland's finest residences. We were shown photos of the furniture that was already in the bedrooms......The Glasgow king and the Highland king are the results.
The copper panels were made by coppersmith James O'Neill of Scotland.
Brantwoode was a collaboration between William Leiper, architect and Chas. Rennie Mackintosh, who designed the fittings for the home.
There was more than a little trepidation on everyone's part at the thought of being placed and juried in the midst of one of the Masters of the form's work.

I PROMISE the same level of attention and consideration to EVERY customer. Bowling Trophy or Oscar, the table that displays it will be the same quality.
The bed is MASSIVE. We start with 5/4" lumber and maintain full dimensions throughout. The side rails are over 12" deep, and have 2 complete sets of bed hooks on each end. Total weight of the bed alone is over 400 lbs.
We can make it to work with a box spring and mattress alone. We also have a slat system that allows the more common European use of a mattress alone.
THE COPPER PANELS ARE EXTRA $$$$ ABOVE THE BASE PRICE OF THE BED. Their cost is determined by the customer's specifications. We now recommend Porteous Tiles instead of the copper panels. We have a vast selection of patterns available to us. Go to the Kensington Art Tile website and you can see the enormous selection of patterns and colors.

Dimensions: VERY LARGE
The headboard is approximately 70" tall, and the foot board is 36" to 40" tall.
All dimensions are really determined by the customers needs and situation.
