Canopy Beds for Every Decorating Style

Whether your decorating preference is for country charm, contemporary sophistication or something in between, there is a canopy bed that’s right for you. These beds have enough presence to star as the focal point of a bedroom, and add a touch of romance to any style. You can add curtains to any of these beds, or not – curtains do create a sense of privacy and look very romantic, but they also close in a small room and aren’t as suited to a contemporary or minimalist style. Leave the canopy off...MORE if you prefer – the bed will still look great. Since the curtains are sold separately, if you do decide to use them, you’ll be able to choose the color and fabric you like best.
