October 8, 2007

On September 20th our NYC showroom played host to celebrate the great work being done by the Alpha Workshops, a not-for-profit organization that trains and employs people living with HIV/AIDS in the decorative arts. Using our ultra-white Club bed, highly respected designer Christopher Coleman created the “Club bedroom” utilizing wallpaper, side tables, window shades and other accessories created by The Alpha Workshops. The beautiful set was created and photographed for Architectural Digest to draw attention to the unique and ongoing efforts of the Alpha Workshops. A portion of each sale of this special Club bed will be donated to support their continuing work.

August 24, 2007

Blueprint has a great article on ways to express different looks for your bedroom using our Cottage iron bed in an antique white finish. With a classic bed like the Cottage, the variations of mood, inspiration and style are limited only by your imagination. Why limit your day to day look to a single style? Using a strong bed and a few sets of bedding and a variety of pillows, your bed can spring to life fresh as often as you like. Summer cool, winter warmth and spring freshness are as simple as taking a minute to change out a few basic items on your that will last a very long time.

Elle Decor- Twin Rutherford Beds

August 24, 2007

As in the last post, we always enjoy seeing our beds used in various designs. This one from Elle Decor is particularly nice. The twin Rutherford’s in black are strong pieces in contrast with all the patterned blues and grays. We strongly believe the proportion, design and overall execution of our beds insures whatever your personal style, favorite colors or aesthetic sensibility, a Charles P. Rogers bed will provide a solid, exceptional anchor piece for you to work your personal design mojo. Eclectic? No problem. Traditional? No problem. Contemporary? You will be surprised at the results.  Think,  design, and then admire yourself.  Not too much though.

Better Homes and Gardens- Forget the shelf, look at that bed!

August 24, 2007

BH&G used our Rutherford bed in antique white for an article about a bedside perch. We like the creativity, the authentic look and of course our bed in a setting that shows what you could achieve in your room. Since we don’t sell night stands (yet??) we love anything that reinforces what we have always believed about our beds, be creative, mix and match, don’t worry, the bed WILL carry the room.

Better Homes and Gardens Indoor Inspiration- Newfield Bed

August 24, 2007

Our iron and brass Newfield bed made the Better Homes indoor inspirations and we think we know why. Our authentic castings and pure brass detailing makes this bed indistinguishable from beds made a century ago. It’s heavy, has a generous use of quality materials and finishing that will make your bedroom exude elegance. Available in both our wrought (shown) or vintage iron finishes. A classic piece of early American iron bed design that will make you look like you scored at Brimfield!.

Domino Bedroom Makeovers & The Charles P. Rogers Cairo Canopy

August 9, 2007

I know we are slowly headed into the Fall, but last May, Domino magazine used our Cairo canopy bed for a great spread on bedroom makeovers that is season-less. The photo shows some of the versatility of our iron beds when combined with creative accessories such as the colorful draperies. One thing we love about the Cairo and many of our canopy beds is this ability to convey your personality and retain its sophistication and quality. We like to think of our beds adding to and validating your personal sense of style no matter how eclectic!
