Erin S. found our EuroLuxHome.com website as she was looking for an interesting antique bed for her new home in Colorado. She was moving from Arkansas, so we held the bed for her for a few months until she was ready for us to ship it to her new home. She also wanted us to convert the Hunting style bed from full size to queen size.
This is the antique French Hunting style bed that Erin chose, lavishly carved in beautifully aged wood and dating to around the year 1900. Antique beds are typically always full size and most of the time will accommodate a standard full-size mattress and box spring set. However, they can be converted to a queen size if the headboard is around 60 inches wide. This one was, so we converted the bed from full size to queen size for Erin.
Here is the antique bed in Erin's home! Isn't it stunning? The bed is richly carved including a large medallion on the headboard surrounded by intricate swirls, and French heraldic motifs on the foot board. Chunky barley twist bed posts are crowned with turned finials. Even the side rails boast a striking and heavily textured carved pattern.
I love the rich color combination of red and gold that Erin has chosen to complement the dark oak of the antique Hunting bed and the heavy carvings are right at home in Colorado! The antique screen with a floral print to the right of the bed and the antique trunk beneath are lovely additions to this warm and cozy room. I think Erin will be as snug as a bug during the upcoming winter!
