We are happy to announce that we have just finished our very first bespoke piece: Vrede.

Vrede is a double bed frame specially made for a client as part of our bespoke service. It is not available for purchase, but may serve as a model for a bespoke piece specially for you.

Vrede is a true Amsterdammer: built in Amsterdam from salvaged Amsterdam wood by a native Amsterdam woodworker, destined for a typically small Amsterdam bedroom in a building in the style of the Amsterdam School, and commissioned by a client who was himself born and raised in Amsterdam.

For more photos and information, visit the product page in our online shop.
