Tripod Four-Poster.

I am not a huge fan of Four-poster beds. That is until I ran across Ted Boerner's Totem Four-Poster Bed. It is a fantastic combination of both traditional and contemporary styling. Something I am drawn to and employ in my own work. Each of the posts have a very cool groove like design which resembles the end of a screw. The headboard also has this detailing. It's sort of industrial in a way. The bed is available in white oak, cherry and maple wood. There are several finishes to choose from. It is shown here in walnut with a dark finish. This finish gives the piece a delightful richness while the groove detailing provides texture and that contemporary detail.
