Iron Beds for the 21st Century - Feather & Black introduces the ‘Caprice’ bed by John Reeves Wednesday 11 June 2008 PDF Print Award winning furniture designer John Reeves has teamed up with celebrated bedroom retailer Feather & Black to create an innovative new iron bed with a romantic twist. The beautifully scalloped frame of the new Caprice bed, and sand cast texture brings the iron beds up-to-date and into the 21st Century. The 100% aluminium frame with its raw finish and unusual design, attempts to change perceptions of traditional ornate and polished iron beds. Inspired by the lines and curves of a woman’s body, the bed combines class, elegance and a touch of wit. Young designer John Reeves, winner of numerous awards for his inventive furniture designs, has created successful ranges for leading UK furniture retailers. Based in Vietnam, he launched his own design company REEVES design in 2003 and continues to expand through collaborations with renowned retailers. Reeves wanted to design and manufacture an iron bed for Feather & Black that would utilise the skill base and technologies available locally in Vietnam. Cast from wooden moulds created by hand the bed is finished to the highest quality by local craftsmen. Roughly sand cast, all impurities of the bespoke bed are left visible, adding beauty and individuality to each piece. Though polishing by hand is labour intensive, the raw and tactile finish of the metal frame bed is what makes it unique. The Caprice bed is priced from £2,685 for a 4’6 double, and is on display in selected Feather & Black stores.
