Modern Pipe Style Canopy Bed
If you think canopy beds are frilly, fabric-covered pieces of furniture suited for young girls, listen up. Most contemporary canopy beds are understated yet sophisticated structures with a gender-neutral vibe. Case in point: this minimalist pipe-style canopy in a primary bedroom designed by Meagan Rae Interiors. Its clean black lines feel distinctively modern. We think its simple, good looks feel more peaceful than a more elaborate canopy.
