Beautiful Bedroom Canopy Bed Frame
Canopy beds may conjure up images of romantic nights in some far off land. A canopy bed adds elegance, sophistication and most of all; it gives a romantic feel to your bedroom. A canopy bed, commonly called a four-poster bed, features a tall post at each corner that supports a covering made of material or netting, which forms a private enclosure that can be drawn back. While today canopy beds are considered stylish, their roots lay in a far less glamorous past. Canopy beds of countless design are a popular choice for people everywhere. They can be fashioned from many materials, including carved wood and ornate cast iron. The canopy itself may be any material from chintz to muslin, or netting for a tropical look. In the 1970’s ad hoc canopy beds became popular when high schoolers purchased defunct parachutes and created billowing canopies over their beds.
Give your canopy bed some unique character by hanging decorations from posts, cross beams or the ceiling above for a punch of added interest. Some decor ideas include paper lanterns, decorative stars, beads, garlands, floral or greenery, ribbons, a chandelier or dripping crystals. This is a creative way to solidify the design theme of your bedroom.
