When you see this bed, you are drawn to it. You need to run your hands across the headboard. Your mind struggles to comprehend the dichotomy of the rough cut lumber and the smoothness of the finish. It is heavy and yet the mattress seems to float. The balance of a soft mattress against the hard surface. When you approach this bed, you feel compelled to climb in. Like a fortress, you feel safe nestled inside it's protection. Made in Canada from locally sourced lumber, the Modelli bed is built out of Ambrosia Maple. The builders utilize circular saw blades to get the distinctive "rough" look and then hand sand and stain the bed to enhance the texture.
