Bed 3 - dressed
Bed 3 - dressed
This platform bed was commissioned by professional designer JJ DeRover - a regular collaborator of mine. He supplied the basic design and I worked out the construction. The massive size of the bed required it be constructed in sections and assembled on site. The headboard is a salvaged antique church door. (The original push-plate was polished and engraved with our names to commemorate the collaboration). The rest of the bed is made from mahogany veneer plywood, solid mahogany, and birch plywood. The night tables are cantilevered off either side of the bottom box, giving the appearance of floating in mid air. The drawers sit flush in the faces of the cabinets, with no pull hardware. They are opened by applying gentle inward pressure to the face. An interior mechanism (which I designed and manufactured) then pushes the drawer open.

This antique circular table, with a flower pattern, is in the South Lawn Bedroom on the second floor of the mansion. To the far left is the hand carved mahogany bed and to the right is the angled fireplace which divides the room into two asymmetrical sections. Next to the fireplace is an antique rocking chair. You also see one of the two doors which leads out onto the balcony which is suspended over the Great Hall. The dresses on display are from the vintage clothing collection. Located at the Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park at 151 Charlotte Street in Canandaigua, NY. (114)
