The Claiborne bedroom successfully brings the past into the present with historic French details like cabriole legs and patinated finishes. The bed, crowned by a sweeping cartouche, is the focal point of the sensuous shapes. Dresser, mirror and tall chest follow their French ancestry closely, but behind the period façade of nightstand and media chest lie contemporary features. Nightstand has two USB charging outlets and media chest is open at the top for component storage. An ingenious floor mirror-wardrobe offers additional space to stow clothes and shoes. By incorporating such modern niceties into period styles, sleepy tradition wakes up to today.
