Canopy beds were first built as a functional furniture item that would keep warmth in and noise out but they later became ornate features which are purely decorative. Canopy beds are usually found in luxury interior designs. Back in the day, they were very valuable and passed on from generation to generation. Today they are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary interior design.
Solid wood frames.
Solid wood canopy beds are very imposing and they have curtains draped across the rectangular frame. More modern designs feature sleek and simple lines and they share a minimalist look characteristic to most modern and contemporary homes.
Wrought iron frames.
Canopy beds which have wrought iron frames tend to have a less imposing look and this allows them to be beautifully paired with breezy curtains. They look stunning in traditional decors but they can be equally stylish in modern and contemporary homes.
There’s also the possibility to opt for a more unusual design for your canopy bed. You could try something exotic. These are usually heavily ornate designs with intricately carved wood frames and posts and, although they may not seem like an obvious choice for most modern homes, they can still look beautiful there.
