Vintage 1949 Mid-Century Modern Custom King-Size Bed Headboard by George Nelson
This remarkable piece is a one-off headboard/dresser/nightstand/mirror combo custom designed by George Nelson in 1949 to match his Basic Cabinet Series (BCS) for Herman Miller. The desk was made specifically for a client in the Promontory Apartment Building in Chicago designed by Nelson's associate, and world-renowned architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The entire apartment was outfitted in pieces from George Nelson's Basic Cabinet Series for Herman Miller that sat, untouched for nearly 70 years in their original setting! Headboard is comprised of 5 wall-mount panels with attached floating components and is over 13 feet long when together! This is a gorgeous, grandiose, and extremely rare piece of design history that will instantly outfit an entire bedroom in striking style!
- Book-matched bird's-eye maple veneer (Primavera finish)
