The Baroque bed, as its name implies is very florid and ornate. The posts are monstrous -especially since theyÕre topped with massive cast finials and sturdy feet. The headboard grill is adorned with a large center casting and supported by 60Ó high posts. The footboard Ð supported by 36Ó posts, is a concave design that dips in the center. There are also large sloping side rails that are as fancifully decorated as the grills. Even the Gilded Slate finish is elaborate Ð it is a black base, with a hand-applied coat of mottled translucent white paint Ð which gives it a bluish hue, highlighted with gleaming gold. This bed is certainly a statement piece and will need a large room to contain it.
