We've decided its time to buy a grown up bedroom set and have some questions I'm hoping the folks here can answer.
So my first question - why do I never see beds dating from many of the European design movements of the 19th and 20th century? What do Danes, Germans, and Austrians sleep on? No one seems to sell Scandinavian Modern, Viennese Secession or Art Deco beds. What's the deal? do they just not exist? Do beds not survive for some reason? Even when I look at places like Rud. Rasmussen
they don't make anything other than day beds. None of the big online gallery types like Dansk Mobel Kunst
seem to have beds either. What's the deal?
At the moment we've been contemplating some of the shaker inspired stuff that Thomas Moser
makes. My question - are there other manufacturers of similar quality and craftsmanship but working in other vernaculars we should be checking out? Who would you go to if you were looking to buy very high quality wood furniture? We would be interested in seeing contemporary designs as well. More one-man gang artisan types as well, although I've been told a lot of that is the next level up in price point. Non-US makers as well - at this price point shipping is worth the money and effort.
(and my wife doesn't care for Arts&Crafts Greene&Greene, Stickley type stuff)
