A simple, modern wood canopy bed, again without any frippery, grounds this bedroom with Zen lines and soft edges.
Fabric doesn't have to mean frill. This stately canopy bed extends all the way to the ceiling, integrating with the structure of the room and clearly delineating where relaxation takes place. The fabric panels, upholstered top and skirted bottom result in a quiet, calming sanctuary fit for a king or a queen. (Or both!)
Up the style ante with a polished chrome canopy. The posts in this view-tastic bedroom mimic the vertical elements in the window, bringing the whole look together.
With its turned wood posts, this design falls a little more on the traditional side, but its placement in a sun-drenched room with dark walls, a vaulted ceiling and bright white textiles give it a New England-beachy chic that makes me want to climb in after a long day on the sailboat (were I in possession of a sailboat).
Traditional furniture strikes a balance with this modernist four-poster bed, plopped in the middle of an urban loft. Even without fabric swooping around the posts, this bed feels like a cozy escape from the bustling city beneath.
Talk about stark! But there's a softness in the austerity. Perhaps it's the subtle detail in the ironwork, or the horizontal wood paneling, or the hint of traditional furniture. Whatever it is, this room feels complete, thanks to the four-poster bed.
It doesn't get much more glam than this: sexy bedside chandeliers encasing a fluffly bed ensconced in white linens and fine textiles all around.
I love this set up for its understated elegance and masterful use of vertical lines, natural materials and quiet textures. It is soft, yet masculine and warm.
Ramp up sophistication with splashy light fixtures. The ceiling fixture and two pendants on either side of the bed work well together, add interest, and make this already glamorous setup even more scintillating. The drapery wall behind the bed softens a look that could have been too cold, with all of the metal finishes.
