Sneak Peak

In celebration of our 18th wedding aniversary, Tambo and I recently commissioned a custom bed frame to be made by my amazing blacksmith neighbor. Our desire is to have a solid bondage bed that does not look like some huge, boxy monstrosity, but rather something elegant that was sturdy and featured LOTS of tie points. As you can see from some of the samples hanging from the walls, our blacksmith is a true artist when it comes to shaping steel with fire and hammer. For inspiration we gave the artist this image and told her, "this is what I what the bedroom to feel like."

The frame itself now complete, next comes the gentle arcs of steel to fill the open space of the headboard that will offset the massive strength and weight of the frame’s body.
