STREAMLINE MODERNE ENAMELED AND CHROMED TWIN BED
Designed by Norman Bel Geddes in 1933 for Simmons, unmarked
Item # 911PUB16O
A rare original twin bed in yellow enameled steel designed by Norman Bel Geddes for Simmons in the 1930s, the piece is characterized by extreme austerity with a pale yellow finish against chrome accents. The headboard and footboard are perfectly matched and symmetrical with simple rails locking them together.
We acquired this as part of a full bedroom suite designed by Norman Bel Geddes including a bedside table, a dressing table with chair, a high chest and this twin bed - some of these pieces may still be available by looking through our shop inventory.
Measurements: 76 1/2" L x 38 1/2" D x 37" H
Wear to original enamel finish throughout. Side bars particularly worn with blemish, scuffing and paint loss.
