Lustables: The Tree Bed

Shawn Lovell crafts and welds each leaf and tendril on The Tree Bed by hand.

Sleeping is for the birds. Seriously. And we think that’s a very cool thing, particularly if it’s done under this imaginative bird’s nest set atop a canopy of metal-worked trees. Fired up and welded by hand, the Tree Bed retails for $15,000, which is reasonable given all of the love that goes into crafting each leaf and tendril.

Shawn Lovell, the strong arm behind the tree bed, set up her Oakland, California shop in 1996 and specializes in one-of-a-kind residential and commercial projects using traditional and modern forging techniques.

Take a gander at Shawn Lovell’s process. Perhaps the only thing we love more than the look of this bed is a creative force of nature with an anvil.
