From my hand to your door. So how does someone design a piece of bedroom furniture? Thought I would share my story on how a simple sketch on paper transforms into a vintage white bedroom set for your home!
It all starts with an idea that is sketched by hand on a piece of paper. This was my vision for the Bombay Collection, an antique white finish bedroom set available at HudsonGoods.com. Hope you enjoy it!
Sketches go through several revisions to refine the look and get it exactly right

Adding color and a few more touches makes the vision complete for the Bombay Headboard
The Bombay Dresser
Next step is architectural drawings with exact proportions and dimensions. Remember the metric system in grade school and thinking, when will I ever use this in life? Guess what, it’s all in centimeters!
Color samples for the paint and level of distressing are selected for just the right vintage look

The Bombay Headboard
The furniture is made in the factory, boxed and packed for shipping across the high seas.
My friend Barry needed dresser knobs so they took a photo!
