This astounding Art Nouveau bed is a symphony of Belle Époque enchantment. Crafted of cast iron with fitted wood panels, this majestic bed is composed of a headboard, footboard and sides, with flowing lines artfully arranged in a naturalistic fan motif. The wooden panels, adorned with Celtic-inspired creatures and mother-of-pearl accents, add to the bed's natural allure. Art Nouveau furnishings are among the most fascinating furniture on the market today. Though smaller pieces have been found, large items such as this magnificent bed are highly desirable and extremely rare.

The bed can accomodate a California king size mattress.

Circa 1900.

Art Nouveau is instantly recognizable for its fluid and organic motifs, with curvilinear lines reflecting the asymmetrical patterns and objects found in nature. An avant-garde style that emerged in the early 1880s, it received widespread popularity almost simultaneously in Britain, France, Germany, Austria, Denmark, and America. When the movement swept across the European continent at the end of the 19th century, it grew from a love of natural forms and Eastern art, as well as a rejection of the increasing use of machinery in furniture-building. Though most are familiar with the movement because of the exceptional jewelry & glass designed by makers such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and in the advertising posters created by artists like Alphonse Mucha, Art Nouveau influenced every kind of domestic art, including furnishings, decorative art and architecture. One of the most important aspects of this complex style was the incorporation of the exotic and the fantastical. Beautifully exhibited by this majestic bed, elements such as the inlaid panels and the curving lines of the cast iron combine to form a work that is at once vibrant and elegant.

Price: $68,500
