15 Stylish, chic and sophisticated canopy beds for girls

Canopy beds usually fit into one of two categories. They’re either traditional or contemporary. Originally, the design for the canopy beds appeared out of necessity. At first they were a way of adding an additional layer of shelter for protection and later the canopy beds were used by lords and their main characteristic were the ability to offer warmth and privacy. Starting with the 16th century, canopy beds got simpler designs and became plain and understated.

Nowadays, canopy beds have become a symbol of extravagance and their only role is to add style and beauty to a room. In terms of design, they are somewhat similar to four-poster beds. 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 aer fairly simple and have clean designs.
