Four poster and canopy beds add space to the bedroom by either enclosing the bed in a fine canopy of fabric while the four posts take the bed to new heights.
This creates a mirror like effect with just as much happening below as happening above. Your eyes are immediately drawn to it making your luxurious bed its own outstanding piece and often times the main focus in the sleeping quarters – as it rightfully should.
There are many different variations on four poster and canopy beds – from an old English manor home from the Elizabethan era to a modern new york city loft in present day – there is a canopy bed for every style.
