Last Buffalo Bed”As a collector, I was looking for truly original pieces to furnish my new ranch home in Montana. I had been looking for a new bed for well over a year.

When I saw [AD's] king size bed at the Western Design Conference,
I immediately knew that my search was over.”


– Bill, California/Montana

The furniture I have invested in from Lone Buffalo Studio,
