I can't begin to explain how beautiful this bed is in person! My husband and I are thrilled that we chose The Thompson for our new home, and admire almost daily how beautiful the hand-carved Natural Ash wood is. We wanted a neutral color but something that complimented the wood, so we decided on the Flax Performance Textured Linen. It was a breeze to assemble, looks like luxury, and is the right amount of classic and chic style. We'd been waiting to find the right piece, and this checked all of the boxes.
