LAID BARE – OUR FAVE FOUR-POSTERS

Bring hotel-suite splendour into your boudoir with these look-at-me styles in four poster beds.

There are times when a divan just won’t do and if you’re planning a master suite or a bodacious bedroom, it’s worth considering a Four Poster as a centrepiece with added impact.

The latest styles veer from chunky and rustic through to heritage designs, fairy-tale silhouettes and all-out opulence. With frames made from metal or timber, there’s a good mix of finishes, too – choose brass for a luxurious look or raw or painted timber for something more timeless. The slimmer and paler frames will give the illusion of more space while darker, bolder options will stake their presence with panache.

Most of the current shapes can be dressed with curtains, too, so they provide the option to switch things up. Go beautifully bare – or drape the frame with your favourite fabric and adjust for the seasons, much as you would with your windows – wafty linens and voiles in summer and cosy wool or plush velvet for the colder months. Whatever you decide, a four-poster will bring a boutique hotel vibe to your bedroom. Room service by arrangement – obvs…
