BGO Bed ‘as seen on TV’

Last Thursday a Bespoke Green Oak Bed was seen (if only for a few short clips) on BBC2’s ‘Building Dream Homes’ Available on iPlayer for only one more day! The bed doesn’t appear until the last 5 minutes so don’t lose heart.

Inlaid butterfly joint detail to stop the cracks in the headboard opening up

The program followed a number of architects from across the UK. Wendy Perring of PAD Studio was the architect behind the stunning house in the New Forest in which the bed now resides.

Built in side tables with integrated power and light switches

The 3.3m long solid oak headboard helps give the master bedroom a natural feel, something that the owners were keen to achieve. The floor to ceiling glazing gives stunning views to the surrounding woodlands, helping to make the connection between the solid English oak of the bed and the surrounding trees.
