French Gothic Paneled Bed
Decades ago when wandering, looking for design ideas, we found pieces of an 18th Century French Gothic Revival bed in the basement of a Parisian antique shop. We weren’t even sure if all pieces were there, but enough was to excite. Finally we decided it was best to photograph the design and craft our own version. Years later we found an image of one for sale at antique shop. That image has been posted here.
Our version, shown here is a Queen. We lowered the height of the posts, but otherwise tried to be true to the designs with its carved French Gothic Panels, the carved detailing and side rails. We even made our first version in the French cherry of the original.
But there have been many interpretations since. Many have been made without the high foot board. We’ve even made headboards alone, with no frame.
We construct all our beds with a mattress support system fitted to the frame, so that they are as solid as they are beautiful.
