The Adelphi Platform bed is a marriage of classic Art Deco and Regency design, incorporating a simple serpentine panel headboard of Mahogany Ribbon Stripe veneer framing a padded upholstered panel. The corner details of the upholstered panel are drawn from classical shaped moldings and the side and footboard rails with rounded corners are raised on round tapered legs. Classical forms and shapes create a canvas for a variety of finish and cover options, from formal modern to casual transitional. Welt trim is standard but nail trim is available for an extra charge.

“Historically classic forms continually inspire and shape my design aesthetic as they capture the familiarity of the past, with which I then, interject a modern point of view."
John Black is a furniture designer and founder of the creative design firm that bears his name, J Black Design. At heart, John is both a modernist and a classicist. Hardly a conundrum. John is known for an understated, classic approach to furniture forms that captures the essence of traditional silhouettes combined with modern touches. He is an artist and a mechanic with an unfailing, critical eye for scale and proportion.
Today John Black is both a master and a student of design. He grew up in the furniture making tradition in North Carolina and received formal training at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Before establishing his own firm, John was Vice President of Design for Baker Furniture. While John travels broadly for inspiration, his everyday life is a creative force.
