Project by: urbangreen
Location: Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York

The challenge was to design and handcraft bedroom furniture for 3 young children with an extra guest bed. The 17'x 14' room, in the Upper West Side, had to also offer bedroom storage and two desks, thereby creating a well designed, functional, beautiful space.

We worked directly with the home owners to accomplish their desired look. The materials used had to be not only good looking but also ensure durability and longevity. Sustainability for urbangreen, along with lowering our carbon footprint, also means handcrafting furniture that lasts a lifetime: Non-disposable furniture, that will not end up in a landfill.

We had to combine two twin and two full size beds with storage and still have a functional, stylish room. What we enjoyed most of the design is the flow of the ladder from the twin to the bottom full beds with drawers. Also, all the storage area under and between the beds for a decluttered and harmonious space.

Materials: Walnut wood finished in a clear, low VOC finish, that brings out the natural beauty & detail of the walnut wood grain. All the drawers run on soft self closing, top of the line steel runners.

Being local craftsmen, we are proud to see our design and manufacturing work enjoyed by our customers and also attracting attention by the media, which is the case with many of our custom projects as well as our awarded storage beds.

Thanks, urban green!
