Crave Worthy: Gustavian Bed

I've been coveting this Gustavian Bed ($1995 for a queen frame) for months now. Its combination of simplicity, elegance, and sturdy craftsmanship makes it seem like the perfect compromise for a couple who are looking for a classical gender-neutral bed. According to VivaTerra's description, this bed was inspired by Sweden's King Gustav's visit to France about 250 years ago. The king returned to his Scandinavian country obsessed with ornate French neoclassical design, which was then re-interpreted with a more streamlined Swedish design sensibility. This bed is made from reclaimed Douglas fir that's up to a century old, which makes this new piece look like a lavish antique.
