Welcome to our Photos Page where you can see what we have been doing for the last several years. You'll see examples of a variety of products we have delivered and installed including many softside waterbeds that we have adapted to our customers existing bed frames.

All installations were preformed by Akin Miller and it's interesting to note all of the different places he has been to!

   
I sold this Oak Poster Bed and the matching nightstands to this couple in 2000. It was Made In America by Blackhawk Furniture but is no longer available. It still looks great today and I'm proud to say that most of the furniture that I've sold over the decades has held up really well. We must have the same taste in furniture as our customer because this is the exact same bedroom set that we had in our home for nearly twenty years.

The original softside waterbed they bought with the set was now 18 years old and they wanted to replace it with something new. They selected a newer version of what they had, our Riviera Pillow Top with the 6 Layer Dual mattress system with two heaters for individual temperature control.

I it love it when past customers come back to see me. It makes my day.

What a view! (click any photo above too see a larger image) Here are a pair of Peppermint Staircase Bunkbeds that we took to a newly built home on the top of a mountain in North Carolina. Built from hardwood, they are in the Peppermint Collection made by Night and Day Furniture and feature a staircase, with built in drawers, to access the top bunk. The couple chose the twin over full configuration because it can sleep three but it's also available in twin over twin. They also purchased a Queen Size Futon Frame to accommodate more sleep over guests plus two matching chests and a desk and chair all in white. The White Furniture looked great against the blue walls with white trim but is also available in several other finishes.

This was our very first delivery from our new Mission Creek Collection. The customer chose the Bookcase Headboard, 8 Drawer High Chest (see photo below) and 6 Drawer Platform Base to go with their California King Memory Foam Mattress. The headboard features two lights, two drawers, two electrical outlets and a USB port. Made In America out of Northern Red Oak, all of the drawers feature English Dovetails.

This is my dear friend and longest running customer, Jeri. She bought her first waterbed from me over 40 years ago when I was downtown in The Athens Flea Market. She replaced that one last year with the one you see here. I had asked her if something was wrong with the old one and she said “No, I just wanted something new”. Turns out it was a present to herself for her 80th birthday!

Our Riviera Pillowtop Softside Waterbed looked great with our customers iron headboard and footboard. It looks just like a "regular bed", doesn't it? This is a good headboard to put in front of a window as it doesn't block the window and lets plenty of light come in. It also works well in a small room.

Bally's Softside Waterbed

This Queen Softside package was put together by a couple that had been on a wood frame style waterbed for decades. They didn't want to change much except they wanted it to be easier to get out of bed as it was getting more difficult for them to roll over the wood frame that they had. They chose our Bally's Softside Waterbed because it would have the least amount of cushion between the water and their bodies and a Semi-Waveless Watermattress because they liked to feel plenty of movement from the water. They wanted it to feel as close as possible to the hardside waterbed they had been sleeping on for so long.

The headboard is our Starlight Bookcase Headboard and we placed it on a headboard stand to make it "free standing" and put the softside waterbed on a set of Princess Drawers with a Low Profile Foundation to elevate the mattress to just the right height for our customers.

Nice comments and photo from Mr Ben Patterson who lives in a suburb of Memphis. He drove over, purchased our Mid Wall Group, rented a U-Hall and we loaded it up for him. Nice job!

Mr. Hardman;
I have finally gotten around to sending you a photo of the Mid Wall & Drawer Pedestal that you sold me. It is BEAUTIFUL !!! I LOVE IT !!!
I repainted the bedroom & installed new carpet before installing the bed. I got this done shortly after Christmas, but have been busy & neglected to email you. I love the sheets that you sold me. Are these available in a grey color? I have the white & slate blue colors & want to add to my linen closet.
Please let me know what other colors are available for you to order for me. Thanks again for selling me this bed. It will become a family heirloom. Ben Patterson

Good Hope GA Cal King Size Frame I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but this is actually a CAL KING SOFTSIDE WATERBED inside our customers Cal King Size Frame. This was a little unusual in that most people have Eastern King size bed frames. We sell very few Softsides in the Cal King size so we don't stock them. They are ordered as needed and they come in pretty quick!

Our customer purchased a pair of our American Heritage Panel Headboards and added the matching Six Drawer Storage Pedestals underneath each one. Made In America from Northern Red Oak by Furniture Traditions in a medium oak finish, they looked great in their lovely mountain home.
Their King is in in the master bedroom with the big picture window with one of our Softside Waterbeds. The one below is a full size that was for their son. We put a split foundation in the platform frame on top of the drawers and they put a conventional mattress on it after we left.

Elberton GA Deluxe Spindle Headboard with Softside Waterbed and Hope Chest The Deluxe Spindle Headboard is a great one to put in front of a window because it doesn't block the light very much. It was a small room but this queen size left enough space for the matching dresser and she was able put the Hope Chest at the foot of the bed. All of these pieces are from the Master-piece Oak Collection and Made in America by Furniture Traditions. You can use any type of mattress in this bed frame. She chose a conventional mattress that she bought elsewhere but it could be a Softside Waterbed, or any type of mattress for that matter.

Athens, Georgia | January 25, 2016

This was the focal point of our customers new bedroom and they wanted their new Waterbed centered between the two windows. They chose our New Haven Captains Waterbed Package in the dark walnut. The couple picked our Southern IV Waveless Waterbed Mattress for the 95% motion reduction. Looks like their son likes it already!

Augusta, Georgia  |  June 26, 2013

This is our Spices Basic Platform Bed in Chocolate and our Hampton Softside Waterbed with an 8520 mattress. We used a low profile foundation to give it that modern, sleek look that the customer wanted.

Eatonton, Georgia  |  April 8, 2013

   

This is our oak Bookcase Headboard, The Nostalgia, and oak Platform Bed with storage drawers underneath. The Softside Waterbed is our Bristol "topper" (no foundation) with an 8520 dual mattress and dual heater system.

Rome, Georgia  |  March 19, 2013

   

Please note that the headboard and Waterbed Mattress did not come from us, the customer already had them and we just wanted to show that sometimes we can recycle some things. We think their headboard and our Waterbed Frame and our Waterbed Drawers matched real well.

Ringold, Georgia  |  June 20, 2012

   

I love how this turned out. It's our Boston Futon Frame in a natural finish with an Encased Coil Futon Mattress. I think that was the perfect Futon Cover for the frame and wall color.

Watkinsville, Georgia  |  June 15, 2012

   

Junior Loft in the pecan finish. It came with the slide that you see on the right. I think it was for a little boy named Fred!

Hoschton, Georgia  |  June 11, 2012

   

This is our only non pillow top Softside Waterbed, The Hampton. By not having a pillow top and using the 8220 Waterbed Mattress, this Softside has the most "true" Waterbed feel to it.
