George Washington Architect Palladian Bed
Collection on display at Ormes East
The exclusive George Washington Architect collection is licensed from George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. The Architect collection is crafted from the finest North American maple and built to last for generations. The main design element, the heart-shaped scroll motif on the beds, mirrors and door pieces, was inspired by the decorative pattern Washington chose to adorn the crown molding in the central passageway of his home. Physical distressing and heavy antique brass hardware are just a few of the design elements that make this collection so special.
Shown in Vernon finish.

Making it better
Mortise and Tenon Joints
A centuries old method of joining two pieces of wood, the mortise and tenon construction technique ensures structural stability.
Cabinet corners are braced with blocks that are screwed and glued in place to add rigidity and prevent racking.
A Flush wood back panel is framed by the top, sides, and bottom of the cabinet to provide added structural strength and elimate racking.
Each drawer features 7/16″ solid hardwood sides and back with a three-ply bottom, sanded and sealed with coats of clear finish to protect your most delicate items.
Real English Dovetails
An English dovetail join connects the drawer front and back to the sides. It remains tight and snug after thousands of pulls.
Floating Panel Construction
Raised panels on doors, sides, and beds “float” within the frame grooves. This allows for natural expansion and contractions of the wood and prevents cracks and splits.
Fully Framed Dust Proofing
Wood dust panels are framed between each drawer to resist sagging and prevent dust from falling between drawers onto clean clothes.
Solid Wood Drawer Glides
On average, drawers are opened and closed over 50,000 times in 40 years! Wood-on-wood treated drawer guides provide years of quiet smooth service.
*Select sets now feature soft-close drawer glides.
