BED DESIGN (02): Chic, timeless & stylish bed designs by Nilson (NL)

Love the beautiful, elegant and chic bed designs from the Dutch company Nilson. Today I would like to highlight the beautiful bed designs from the company FG Stijl. Just love it! People from all over the world enjoy the wonderful comfort that Nilson beds offer. This high-quality comfort is achieved by using natural materials in order to create an unique & traditional end product. The beds have a subtle & luxurious design and are completely hand-made in the Netherlands.

 
The collaboration with inspiring designers and stylists has resulted in timeless and stylish design. Earlier I wrote MORE BLOGS about this inspiring company. 
FG Stijl
The renowned hotel architect FG stijl from Amsterdam has been contracted to design the Signature collection. FG stijl’s design paid special attention to high quality, comfort and ease of use. 
FG stijl has a significant portfolio including four Dutch Michelin star restaurants and The College Hotel in Amsterdam. Their efforts have won various prizes. Since then FG stijl has completed The Dominican hotel in Brussels and the DO & CO hotel in Vienna.

Bathroom: Vessel Bath in Carbon Fibre by SplinterWorks

I was inspired by this beautiful vessel bath in carbon fibre, designed by SplinterWorks. Following the success of their 'vessel hammock bathtub', SplinterWorks has expanded its collection of washtubs with a freestanding vessel bathtub and a similarly sculptured, yet smaller scaled sink. Both appear to attract your attention through their gentle sloping forms and the rich color that they emulate. For more information, see the enclosed links below.
