It appears a new crop of luxury canopy beds has popped-up onto the interior design marketplace.
Built to provide warmth and privacy, the original canopy bed was utilized in medieval Europe by lords and noblemen. Today, it represents an elegant statement piece. Although most modern versions are sans curtains, they still exude a sumptuous and romantic feeling. Sleep like royalty, and indulge in a modern-day canopy bed, as the following five are currently available for purchase.
#1: Regal Sleep
Feel like a royal heir in the billowy, ultra-luxe Empress Canopy Bed by Haute House.
Marketed by Horchow, this bed features a scalloped alder wood frame and button-tufted headboard, a combination that gives off a “regal” appearance and is sure to infuse luxury into any sleeping quarters. The cotton upholstery comes in a creamy, light versatile color, and bed frames are available in three different sizes. Prices for the Empress Canopy Bed begin at $6,999.
#2: Into the Forest
Escape into an enchanted forest with this unique take on the canopy bed.
Anthropologie’s Forest Canopy Bed — priced at $5,598 — stands at 84 inches tall and comes in either black or white. The whimsical, hand-forged iron branches twist and wind overhead, and are also shown crisscrossed as a makeshift headboard and footboard.
#3: Sweet Dreams
Enjoy a sweet slumber of kings, queens, and castles in this detail-oriented version of a canopy bed.
The Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture Canopy Bed features an antique white iron frame, and comes in five different sizes. There is also the option of having curtains on either side, as a nod to the original canopy bed. Prices start at $2,975.
#4: Black Magic
The Keating Canopy Bed by Williams-Sonoma has a sharp, ultra-modern design that works well in a contemporary setting.
The dark, rich finish on the solid oak frame highlights its marvelous, architectural nature. Handcrafted in France, this bed — which is priced at $2,395 — features square posts and can be left open and airy, or have fabric draped across.
Although minimalist in design, the PCHseries Canopy Bed embodies total relaxation and seclusion.
The simple, yet sophisticated structure sits lower to the ground than the other four pieces to give it a more “laid-back” vibe. Made of solid teak, this bed has ultra-crisp lines, square posts, and a natural oil finish. It comes in two sizes (King and Queen) and costs $5,500.
