I had been hanging on to the classic Duncan Phyfe Bed Frame for some time now. I purchased it at the same time as this Malcolm desk last summer. I just love the pineapple finials on each post and the classic curves of the headboard.
I recently picked up this refinished maple dining table on “East 16th” Street in Hamilton on “the mountain”.
