The Baroque bed, as its name implies is very florid and ornate. The posts are monstrous -especially since they're topped with massive cast finials and sturdy feet. The headboard grill is adorned with a large center casting and supported by 60" high posts. The footboard supported by 36" posts, is a concave design that dips in the center. There are also large sloping side rails that are as fancifully decorated as the grills. Even the Gilded Slate finish is elaborate it is a black base, with a hand-applied coat of mottled translucent white paint which gives it a bluish hue, highlighted with gleaming gold. This bed is certainly a statement piece and will need a large room to contain it.
