Friday Faves: Canopy Beds

Almost time for the weekend and what better thing to think about than a beautiful canopy bed to sleep late in tomorrow morning. These are some of my favorites:

This is the exotic Zambia bed with turned wood posters in a rosewood finish by Artifacts International, available at M-Geough. The intricate carving is amazing, offset by the smooth headboard.

The Cornell bed by Gerard, which is part of Dessin Fournir, is done in mahogany with a brass canopy. It is available at the Martin Group. This is such a sculptural piece that really makes a statement. It would be great in a loft or large bedroom.

This Italian Campaign canopy bed from Anthropology is one of my all time favorites. The lines on it are so elegant and it is a timelessly beautiful bed. I’ve seen this in several bedrooms and one of my favorites was a tropical island location. It had sheer panels attached to the canopy which draped all around the bed. Can you imagine laying in that and listening to waves crashing outside?

Lastly we have the Antonia iron canopy bed from Pottery Barn. It also has an upholstered headboard covered in a champagne linen and cotton blend so you get the best of both worlds. This is a great no-nonsense bed with simple detailing.
