A Bed For M-Dolla
Craftsman Jonathan Tebbs has got “in bed with Madonna” in a magical deal.
The brass bed restorer hit the high notes with The Queen of Pop, who polished off the purchase in person.
Jonathan, who owns A Barn Full of Brass Beds at Conisholme, near Louth took the bed personally to Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie‘s central London home.
He is reserved about the details of his visit because he has so much respect for Madonna.
Jonathan (44) said: “I was honoured to undertake such a task for The Queen of Pop. It was an amazing experience meeting her. It was at first a feeling of surprise. It was a pleasure to meet her. A bed is such a personal thing and I was pleased to supply precisely what she wanted.”
Jonathan is no stranger to meeting the demands of celebrities, having supplied the cast of the Harry Potter films with beds for their dormitory at Hogwarts, as reported. Jonathan and his wife Naomi (34) visited the set of Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix when he supplied moviemakers with a second set of authentic, beautifully restored brass beds.
As a supplier for blockbuster film sets, Jonathan is hoping his latest celebrity encounter with Madonna might tempt her director husband, Guy Ritchie to continue the genre of using brass beds in his gangster movies and maybe turn the old bed rust into romance. He said: “I hope Guy Ritchie can use them as well as Harry Potter.” Jonathan’s firm specialises in the restoration of original Victorian and Edwardian antique brass beds.
