Fabulous Four Poster Bed Ideas for modern bedrooms

Make your bedroom pack a punch with a statement bed.

We’ve sifted through our Livingetc archives and pulled out some of the best four poster bed ideas. They might be Medieval in origin, but four poster beds are very much of the moment.

The four poster bed is seeing a serious revival in modern bedrooms; gone are traditional overtones and classically curvaceous lines – the modern makeover comes in the form of unusual materials and stylish shapes.

The below 23 four poster bed ideas range from dramatic wood structures and glitzy disco beds to sleek, simple, minimalist designs. We love the whimsical, dream-like beds too; like the canopy bed draped in mesh fabric, and the steel bed frame that twists like branches, crowned with steel flowers at the top.

Metals have really come to the fore, including brass and moulded steel.

Originally designed as a practical way to maintain warmth and privacy, four poster beds – or canopy beds – are hands down the grandest style of bedroom furniture.

As well as the intricate, carved style you’re used to seeing in stately homes, in recent times the design has been given a creative makeover to suit the chic, modern aesthetic.

Many are designed drape-free, the simplicity of wood poles drawing the eyes upward to enhance the ceiling height.

However, the addition of drapes absorbs external sounds and lends insulating, cosseting qualities, meaning you can cut back on the heating. So it’s practically saving you money.

Ensure your room is large enough to take a sizeable bed and keep the rest of your furniture to a minimum for a look that’s simple, striking and oh-so chic.

These styles prove that four poster beds aren’t just for fairy-tales. And once you try four poster, you’ll never go back.
