Superb Mahogany and Rush Rattan Queen Bed by John Hutton for Donghia, circa 1995



This magnificent bed is shipped as professionally photographed and described in the listing narrative: Meticulously professionally restored and completely installation ready.

A stunning rare Queen bed from the limited production Merbau collection designed by the esteemed John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995. Examples from this particular low production series are nearly impossible to find for sale. Mr. Hutton was the firm design director from 1978-1998 and was responsible for many of the now iconic Donghia designs produced during that period. While Hutton’s talent was always recognized within design and architectural circles, this influential modern designer’s work is finally becoming more commonly appreciated by the mainstream. Stout heavy mahogany construction veneered in heavy Rush style rattan. Rich mahogany accents. Design, material selection and craftsmanship that is beyond incredible, built like a battleship. A breathtaking piece designed to anchor an important bedroom. The side rail and footboard height is 14.25 inches. Excellent restored condition. The bed has been professionally cleaned; the rattan has aged to absolute perfection. All mahogany accents have been professionally re-lacquered and display a radiant luster. All veneer is intact and complete. Retains the maker mark; Donghia is burned into the case bottom.
