Woodworker: C.L. PhillipsThis Art Nouveau bed (67 in. wide by 85 in. long by 56 in. tall) is based on a design from the period by A. Landry, but Phillips modified it by using lighter woods (Swiss pear and bird’s-eye maple instead of the walnut and ash in the original) and adding carved foliage and calla lilies. The finish is shellac.
