When we first saw this bed, it was painted in an unappealing pale blue. We knew this was not appropriate for a bed of this grandeur and had it sandblasted and then painted with a baked on clear coat. What you see now is pewter, the natural gray colour of iron which allows the amazing detail in the castings to shine.
This hand-crafted bed is stunning and shows the skill of a master of his trade.
It certainly deserves to be known as a bed that makes a statement.
