Made for a client with a passion for the Orient, this colossal headboard stands over 8 1/2 feet tall and 8 feet wide. The design was inspired by a Japanese Shinto shrine. It is made of poplar plywood and poplar lumber and features a display panel for the client's oriental screen. The piece was painted a dark aqua, with the faux finish added later by the designer who commissioned the project. The headboard is attached securely to the wall behind the bed.
