Dick Cordemeijer Cleopatra day bed with mattress Auping 1954


Item description

Iconic Dutch design, the Cleopatra bed by Dick Cordemeijer for Auping, Holland 1954. This bed was launched in 1954 by Auping, because of this design in the first year the sales increased by 22.4% for Auping. The production was between 1954 and 1982, but from 1960 the sales of this bed were on their return. The total production of these beds is 850.000 pieces in several color combinations and sizes. The popular bed was simple modernistic, as was a very popular style in the days with Tomado, Pastoe, Anvia etc creating the same kind of styles. It was functional, not too expensive and build to resist. Even after 50 years these beds don't screech. The frame was made of very dark grey coated metal and the ends are in solid teak wood, a very nice contrast. This mattress is upholstered with a high quality fabric by kvadrat, this is the Hallingdal 65 fabric and this looks great in contrast with the metal frame and teak ends.

Like all of our upholstered pieces this can also be newly upholstered to your wishes. Ask our upholstery department for a very affordable quote. We only use the best quality foam and materials for all of our items in combination with upholstery to your choice.
