After revamping its website design with the help of internet marketing company WebProvise, Inc., a high-end rustic furniture e-tailer was tapped to craft a custom log bed for the HBO series “True Blood.” The bed was made and seen in episode 4.08 of True Blood during Eric and Sookie’s “love trip in the snow”.
“Before I saw the new WebProvise site design, I wasn’t sure what to expect,” Owner Jason Hunt explained. “I knew it would look great, but in the end I was totally blown away by it. Customers will be, too. It’s awesome; way beyond anything I had imagined.”
The new online marketing strategy worked, sparking a relationship between Log Furniture Place and HBO. The network’s producers asked Hunt to create the True Blood Extremely Gnarly Aspen Log Bed which was featured in “Spellbound” (Season 4) on Aug. 14.
The hand-crafted, high-quality log and rustic furniture and accessories Log Furniture Place sells now seem just about as sexy as “True Blood” characters Sookie and Eric (played by Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgard).
“HBO came to us and said, ‘Make us something as gnarly and unique as possible because we’re going to spotlight it in Episode 8‘,” Hunt explained. “It turned out amazing. Our Facebook fans and customers just love it.”
The bed is now available for purchase at LogFurniturePlace.com and features: Oversized legs, a double-log spindled side rail and hand-picked logs. Rich with texture, the wood used in its construction is peeled, knotted, burled and curvy.
“It’s just a gorgeous, gorgeous bed and I’m really proud to have been able to help out HBO. I’m also proud of the way WebProvise helped us promote our upscale log cabin furniture and rustic decor: Our stately aspen log beds, dining room furniture, rustic kitchen cabinets, accessories, bars, bar stools, pool tables — you name it.”
