    These beds as delivered are truly incredible. The craftsmanship, care, and attention to detail are unparalleled, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the value of the finished product.

    Alex and Gina produce something with an aesthetic that is tuned perfectly for children, but is also modern enough to be loved by parents. The construction is incredibly solid hardwood plywood, with a masterfully smooth and perfect finish (both in the clear and painted finishes).

    Gina was incredibly easy to work with, and we worked closely to fine-tune the dimensions of the beds for our incredibly small (but very tall) kid's bedroom in our new rental apartment in NYC. The finished predicted is gorgeous.

    I can't say enough about these two craftsman - in a world full of mass-manufactured furniture, this is everything that is missing.

    Couldn't be happier with our daughter's bed or Gina's customer service. The birch plywood is flawlessly finished. The grain shows through the contrasting stain on the ladder, a nice touch not visible in photos. Instructions were careful and clear; every tool was included; and every hole lined up where it should (a first in my experience). You do need two people to assemble this, and be prepared for possible UPS and customs delays. Worth every loonie (Canadian dollar)!

    We love our bed. We worked with the fine folks at BetweenPosts to create a one-of-a-kind bed for our kids. We had a narrow, but small space that was just large enough for perfectly designed bed. They built a beautiful high bunk bed with a trundle that provides the convenience of three regular twin mattresses.

    The bed was simple to put together, and it came well packaged.

    I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a custom, well built piece of furniture.

About

BetweenPosts - Our Story

We decided to start our shop because we love making our own products, ideas we throw at each other and of course other peoples ideas too! I have been creative all my life, I studied Art & Design for 4 years in England, then once obtaining my qualifications I worked in London, then some years later, I moved to Germany, where I met my husband Alex, and we teamed up to combine our artistic skills together. In the beginning Alex built and worked on stage sets for films and tv shows and I painted the film sets with specialized finishes, then we moved on to design themed rooms in hotels, wall and stage decorations in discotheques and then modern furniture for residential homes and restaurants, learning to design and use birch multiply in all functions of our work. For each client, I would produce a watercolour visual or b/w pen and ink sketches of our combined ideas, then together with Alex, we would turn the sketches and ideas into reality. We moved to Canada in 2007 and worked towards opening our own workshop once again.
We have now opened our online design and carpentry shop working with Etsy and out in our back workshop in Vernon.
Our children, Nils (29) and Amy (19) gave us lots of inspiration regarding children's designs and needs whilst growing up and we would like to share our knowledge and experience using birch multiply to design clean modern furniture, some of our own designs combined with your ideas too!.
We are working on building up a collection of new modern furniture pieces and artwork ideas all the time, and we will add them to our shop as soon as they are ready!.
We hope you like our on-line carpentry shop and we look forward to hearing from you, and having the opportunity of working with you on all your projects!.
