After a year of a mattress on the floor, Miss Bane finally convinced me to build her a bed (she says it is ours). It is made of new steel, a Clarendon Hotel balcony rail, reclaimed redwood, and some very serious bolts. The wooden feet allow it to move easily on tile scratch-free. The dramatically tall height gives it an “Alice in Wonderland” feel. I find myself inspired by Moorish tile work, so I put a “star of squares” in it. With such solid construction, the bed is completely “rock free”. Beds start around $900 (minus Moorish stars).
