Nov. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Parnian Furniture, an Arizona based furniture manufacturer and creator of the World’s Most Expensive Bed  and the World’s Most Expensive Desk, has just been notified that they won first place and Overall Winner in the Custom Woodworking Business Design Portfolio Awards.

In the last two months Parnian has entered three items, the Sunset Bed, a custom reception desk and a custom kitchen, in two design contests and has won first place in every category it has entered.

Ali Parnian, V.P. of Marketing said, “Since we started making our own custom designed furniture in 1977, we knew that we created the World's most amazing furniture. This year, for the first time, we decided to enter our designs in two different woodworking and design competitions to see what the experts thought. The results were encouraging, we won first place in every category entered and we won "Overall Winner" for our Sunset Bed in one of the contests. We would like to thank all of our employees and our customers both locally and worldwide who have supported our custom made furniture for over 33 years.”
Of course, like many of the furniture items designed and created by the company’s president Abdolhay Parnian, the original intent was not to create an award winning or expensive bed, but rather to design something that looks unlike anything ever made before that would make people say “WOW!”

“I design furniture like most artists create fine art. I keep working on the design and think of every detail until I am satisfied that the end result will be perfection. I have been working on this design for over 2 years. My craftsmen have spent over 8 months making this intricate piece of fine art by hand. I am pleased with the look and feel of the end result and am now working on a much more elaborate version for a private client.”

The “Sunset Bed” also known as the World’s Most Expensive Bed starts at $38,000.00 USD and can reach prices of over $210,000.00 USD depending on features and materials selected. Options include built in iPad holders, charging stations, pop-up and swivel TV’s and computer monitors, hidden compartments, gold and stainless steel detailing and custom handmade mattress options with all natural materials include wool, cotton, latex and horsehair.

The award winning version is made with Ebony, Sapele and Curly Maple finished in a glossy lacquer finish. The bed boasts two LED touch light switches, one for backlight and one to illuminate the two attached floating nightstands with drawers. The focal point of this piece is the beautifully crafted sunburst inlay woodwork which is made possible by cutting thin pieces of delicate wood into 78 small wedge shaped pieces to come exactly to a perfect point in the center to make the beautiful circular design.
