The Story Behind Our New Log Bed

Behind the Design, Behind the Scenes | | | 1 Reply

We’re obsessed with the new Log Wood Bed and Headboard that’s recently been added to the Pottery Barn collection. And really, what’s not to love? Made in America in the rural midwest, this artisan-built bed is crafted from solid poplar logs. Another reason we love it? This bed is built using environmentally friendly methods from start to finish, and is made almost completely by hand. But since we wanted  to know what originally inspired Pottery Barn to carry this gorgeous bed, we asked our designers for the story behind the design.

It turns out that while our bedroom designer, Ged, was on a ski trip in Aspen he was inspired by the scale and rustic authenticity of the log beds in the house he was renting. He took pictures and sketched out the bed’s design, adding some of his own ideas to the original bed’s look, and then shared the photos and sketches with the team back in San Francisco upon his return from his Colorado ski trip. After that, the team made quick work of turning Ged’s designs into Pottery Barn reality.
