The bed is built up on a plywood base that doubles as bookshelf and storage space. The mirror behind the headboard makes the whole room seem larger and the light box over the bed gives a modern canopy effect by allowing lights to glow through stripes of glass fibre. The cushions are appliqued in vivid colours to make extra seating.

Create your own graphic design with glossy coloured paper or remnants of felt.
