Canopy Bed Ideas For Your New Home
Canopy Beds were originally intended to be utilitarian rather than ornate and used to provide privacy and warmth to noblemen and lords in Medieval Europe. The original beds had curtains and completely covered tops that could be totally closed.
During the 16th century the previously plain and simple designs became much more detailed with carved posts and headboards. Today we have an endless amount of interpretations as you will see ranging from the Ultra Modern pod like bubble to classic Wrought Iron styles and what would interior design be without some chrome.
It is interesting to see how creative people have been with the fabric and sheers drapes to personalize their decor. For more designs see 100 Platform Bed Designs and Ideas
