Earlier this year we did a bit of spring-cleaning at the Natural Bed Company warehouse and discovered a quantity of exotic timber we thought had been used (Ok, we forgot it was there!). From this we made five one off wooden bed bases in the Sonora, Kyoto, Nevada and Sahara designs.
Special Edition Kyoto wooden bed – with headboard
Currently taking pride of place in the window of our Sheffield showroom, the special edition Kyoto is a standard king size (150x200cm) made from solid Utile. A West African hardwood, Utile is a rich, deep red in tone with an interesting and delicate grain. The height of the headboard panel allows the timber to be clearly seen above duvets and pillows. Currently we have the bed on display with our Gold Kashmir Silk Indian Duvet set (now on sale- reduced from £260 to £175!), with the vibrant colour of the silk bringing out the warm tones of the timber. The special edition Kyoto wooden bed is shown above with our New England style bedding in grey and white – perfect if you are looking for a more contemporary style.
Special Edition King Size Nevada and Sonora
Also on display in our showroom, the Nevada bed base is currently my personal favourite in the shop. The kaleidoscopic nature of the timber – burnt oranges, deep reds and browns and flecks of golden yellow with the swirling grain combines to mesmerising effect. After much research we believe the timber to be Cocobolo, a hardwood found in Central America. We also have a king-size Sonora available in this timber, with the higher headboard allowing the grain and mix of colours to be shown off to an even greater extent – contact us to ask about the Sonora exotic wooden bed.
The Nevada bed was photographed with our Vanilla Zari quilt. The light colour and simple pattern give a great contrast to the deep tones and bold grain of the timber. The Ivory Taj bedspread, Pale Ivory soft quilted bedspread and the Village Natural or White duvets would also have the same effect.
Special Edition Sahara
Two king size Special Edition Sahara’s were made from our exotic timber stocks, both thought to be Cocobolo, differing from the Sonora and Nevada timber due to a darker tone, the majority of the headboard and side rails being more chocolate brown in colour with streaks of an almost pale Oak tone visible throughout. The intense grain still remains however; the beds would make a striking statement in any room. Contact us to enquire about this bed.
As all our Special Edition wooden beds have already been made in our Sheffield workshop they are not subject to our usual 4-week lead-time. Instead we would expect delivery to occur within 2 weeks, via our national carriers. Before any bed is sent out it would be sent to our workshop to ensure no issues have occurred since manufacture and to be securely packed. The bed would be delivered on a ‘2-man’ service and the goods would be taken to the room of your choice and unpacked. As with all beds in our range, the bases are self-assembly.
