We recently completed a project for a client of ours. She wanted a custom #headboard, and provided us some basic drawings of what she wanted. She was then able to work with Beckenstein’s Ann Campbell (In-House Design Consultant) and Fernando Guaman (Beckenstein Product Development) and finalized the design. We got to building, and the finished product was magnificent. See all the pictures, here: http://bit.ly/116KdUH

Follow the 60-30-10 Rule

The traditional and modern styles complement each other, while the Art Deco furnishings provides a little icing on the decorative cake.
