6 Canopy Beds to Dream About While at Work
It's Monday folks. We've all rolled outta bed and hopefully launched into our responsibilities for the week ahead. Do you ever reach that point in the day (say three o'clock) when you start to fantasize about climbing back into bed? I do (and usually go for caffeine instead). So let's escape into that imaginary world and dream big: The Canopy Bed.
When you're tired who wants to climb up a thick mattress and boxspring to get to sleep? Well this one (above) solves that problem by providing a platform base in salvaged wood framing. Contemporary and chic, I could see this in a loft apartment, almost defining a room all of its own with its clean lines.
Now here's an elevated example that will provide a little more challenge for the pets to take over! It's the kind of traditional iron canopy that you see in old movies, the sleeper cocooned in mosquito netting (picture Meryl Streep in Out of Africa). Whether draped romantically with fabric or accented in a more whimsical fashion with twinkle lights, this is a timeless piece that can play a leading role in many bedtime fantasies.
You guys are not going to believe where this stylish canopy bed is from (and how affordable it is!)! The diamond pattern on both the headboard and footboard add such elegant detailing to this piece along with a rich ebony finish.
This one comes with a built-in bench at the foot of the bed, perfect for taking off one's shoes, or if you're like me, amassing stacks of books.
I'm attracted to the lighter finish and visible grain of this canopy bed that's a mix of both wood and iron. It still has the characteristic framing of a canopy bed without the heaviness.
Why limit the canopy bed concept to just the bedroom? This wicker one can literally transport you to paradise. Let me know where you're going and I'll meet you there!
