The magic of canopy bed curtains

A canopy bed is a decorative bed somewhat similar to a four-poster bed, having the same basic shape with four large posts on each corner of the bed frame. Canopy beds are different only in the aspect of decoration. Ornate or decorative fabric is often draped across the upper space between the posts and a solid swath of cloth may create a ceiling, or canopy directly over the bed.

The canopy bed came into existence more for utilitarian means rather than for extravagance or decadence. Canopy beds with curtains that could completely enclose the bed were used by lords and noblemen in medieval Europe for warmth and privacy, as their attendants often slept in the same room.

As the centuries passed, these canopy beds became much more ornate, transforming into the elegant pieces we have come to know today. Nowadays, everyone can afford a canopy bed and they can add an air of sophistication to your bedroom or make your patio feel high-class during those long summer afternoons.

Let’s take a trip in the romantic world of modern canopy beds

Modern canopy beds generally fit into one of two categories: traditional or contemporary. The traditional designs have posts at each of the four corners and feature decorative fabric draped to create a canopy directly over the bed. Modern and contemporary canopy beds don’t necessarily have posts. While traditional canopy beds have a Victorian aesthetic, modern designs are fairly simple and have clean designs.

We hope you’ll enjoy this fantastic gallery and find some unique inspiration for your own home. From rustic to minimalist, you really have a lot of options, you just have to pick your favorite.
