A photo of a similar chair appears in Alan Weintraub's monograph; I don't find images of the other pieces, in that book. The bed would be more convincing with a provenance. The wood looks like no fir I've seen.

The Arnold Friedman presentation rendering matches one published in Taschen (vol III, p 66). I have compared them below, at matching size. I have no reason to believe that either of these drawings isn't genuine; they are quite obviously based on the same perspective layout and contain many details in common. The comparison raises the question "which was drawn first ?" The Taschen version precedes the Toomey offering in each case.
