Hartmann Bed Frame
Image of Hartmann bed

This is the first bed I made. The emphasis for this design was clean lines, exposed joinery, and to have one wood throughout. The head and foot board panels are solid planchonia. This bed appeared in an article in the New York Times in 1994.

A pair of matching bedside tables were designed at the same time to complement the bed frame.
