Urban Chic… With a Raw Oliver!!!
“The perfect antidote to fussy florals and bedroom frippery” Alexandra Broad
We are proud to reveal a new, industrial chic version of its best-selling ‘Oliver’ bedstead. Termed the ‘raw’ Oliver, the bedstead’s classic, tubular design remains untouched. However, its finish – a fabulously grungey pewter, with dark undertones – gives this popular bed a whole new, and a very contemporary look.
Plus, no two bedsteads are the same – because the Oliver in its raw state is finished completely by hand.
We are increasingly seeing a trend towards a softened industrial style – and this raw finish, which we have also used to great effect on our Eleanor, ‘scaffolding’ four poster bedstead, is an example of how people want to introduce an edgier, pared back look into their bedroom schemes. It’s that slightly undone, unfinished loft apartment feel – the antithesis of shabby chic – and it’s bang on trend.
Like all our beds, raw Oliver is crafted by hand in the UK. In addition, every raw Oliver bedstead is unique. This is because during the finishing process, different levels of heat, applied to different areas of the bedstead’s frame, result in variations on the final ‘raw’ colour.
When examined closely, its distinctive grungey appearance reveals itself to be a beautifully subtle palette of metallic greys and blues with dark undertones. And intriguingly, the colours continue to change post-production – with different shades appearing throughout the day as the temperatures surrounding the bed – e.g. from sunlight or central heating – vary.
In addition to Oliver, we can offer the raw finish as a £75.00 option on any of our iron bedsteads.
Our raw Oliver beds are available in single (3.0ft and 4.0ft), double (4ft 6”), king (5ft) and super-king (6ft) sizes. Prices start from £625.00 exc delivery.
