Exquisite Italian Art Nouveau Nickel Plated

Exquisite Italian Art Nouveau Nickel-Plated Super King Size Bed. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this bed exemplifies the distinctive features of Art Nouveau furniture, renowned for its organic shapes and flowing lines. Constructed from brass and skillfully nickel-plated, this masterpiece embodies the harmonious fusion of nature's influence and exceptional craftsmanship. Originating in Europe, Art Nouveau furniture showcases sinuous and sculptural forms, characterized by curving lines, graceful arches, and sensuous ornamentation. A close examination of the bed reveals ornamental details inspired by delicate flower stalks, buds, vine tendrils, and even the sinuous wings of insects. The elegance and gracefulness of these elements add an enchanting touch to the overall design. The bed, a remarkable one-of-a-kind creation, boasts exceptional quality and weightiness. Sympathetically restored, it has undergone a meticulous process, including stripping, thorough inspection, reassembly, and a light cleaning to preserve its natural aging. The support frame has been reinforced and modified to accommodate wooden slats, providing a sturdy foundation for a modern super king size mattress measuring 180cm x 200cm. Additionally, brackets have been thoughtfully added to securely affix the tall headboard to the wall, ensuring stability and support. With a maximum head height of 194cm, a foot height of 124cm, and side rail height of 45cm, this bed offers a majestic presence in any space. Its overall dimensions of 191cm in width and 224cm in length ensure ample space for a luxurious and comfortable sleeping experience. Please note that this exquisite bed originates from Italy, where it is known as "Stile Floreale" or "Stile Liberty."
