French Equestrian Hand Carved Bed: Louis XIV Inspired Design
At ArtFactory.com we believe in building furniture that is not something that you just use for a few years and then throw away. Building items that are disposable is a practice that is unique to the past hundred years. In the old world, when a piece of furniture was built, it was built from solid, natural materials by master craftsmen. Most importantly, it was built to last forever. Something like a solid wood bed would be passed down through a family for generations. This customer requested for us to add hand carved horses to our French style hand carved king bed design, and as a result, we created this breathtaking French equestrian hand carved bed.
A true modern masterpiece inspired by a 300-year-old design, with Louis XIV inspired floral carvings, carvings of horses on the headboard and footboard. Like all of our historically inspired designs, it is built with period correct methods and materials.This type of product cannot be build overnight, or with low quality materials. That is why used the highest quality, full length, solid cedar cypress (all wood types are available). It is built by hand, using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joinery. This type materials and construction makes for a product that will stand the test of time. Most importantly, the equestrian and floral acanthus motif carvings were all done by the hands of one master carver. Direct carvings by one masters hands is especially relevant in the eyes of appraisers when determining a piece as meeting fine art qualifications.
