Beautiful And Versatile Sapele

I have just completed working on a bedroom set for my clients in Massachusetts. They loved my Pinnacle and Gatsby lines, but desired something a bit more exotic than Cherry or Walnut. They wanted these pieces to truly stand out among the other pieces in the room, so I introduced them to Sapele, which is an African member of the Mahogany family and can show many grain variations. We chose the quarter sawn Ribbon cut, with its beautiful striations and waves as the primary wood, and Quilted, with its show stopping "bubbly" effect for panels and drawer fronts. Dark Wenge accents above the mouldings, for the pulls and lower curves provide detail accents.

The Gatsby bed has running, book matched Quilted Sapele head and foot boards and is made for a king sized box spring and mattress. Although it is difficult to see in this photo, the foot and head boards have a gentle curve to them, reflecting the curve in the posts.
