Wood weathered by wind, rain, water, and daily use. The wood used for this bed is recycled and comes from the North American elm tree. After a long life in service as front doors, some 80 to 120 years later, the untreated wood has been used to make tabletops, cupboards... and now also a bed and headboard. The wood has a naturally weathered colour, so the pattern and texture of the wood grain can be seen and felt clearly. Purely natural and truly old.
