Client Our client is a 5 year old girl who is passionate about ballet and has aspirations of becoming a prima ballerina.

Design inspiration

Our inspiration came from the girl’s dream of being on stage as a prima ballerina and a music box. Therefore, music box platform and a performance stage were our main inspirations.

Bed details Type of bed: adult size bed Mattress measurements: twin size 90cm x 200cm (Continental Europe standards). Bed construction: custom made slatted bed frame which will fit a standard twin size mattress. The bed will be raised on a custom made platform with built-in lights to resemble a performance stage. Color scheme: since our client is only 5 years old, the bed will be originally painted in bright pink and blue colors. As she grows the bed can be repainted. Functionality: •  Storage functionality: there will be 2 under-the-bed storage drawers placed on each side of the bed. •  Stretching pole: the back side of the headboard has a big mirror with an stretching pole adjustable for height of a girl. •  Shelf / side table functionality: headboard side of the bed has a back shelf and 2 side shelves built on each side of the bed to be used for a night stand or books.
