Nature’s Slumber

Lay your head down on the soft down pillow, look up through the trees and peak at the bird’s’ nest. No, you are not camping. The ultimate in Faux Bois, an old technique of creating wood grain in different mediums, is this incredible bed by Shawn Lovell! As if you are laying under the stars, the frame of metal tree trunks with high reaching limbs come together at the top like a canopy, punctuated by a bird’s nets at the very top. Oh, sweet dreams….

It reminds me of snow white & the 7 dwarfs. It takes me to fantasy land and a great place to day dream... All I need is my nature cd to complete the scene.
