The four poster bed is the picture of elegance and luxury. Big beds in fancy frames with four posts, one in each corner, supporting a canopy top, four poster beds give a feel of sleeping in a bygone and slower-moving era.


Four poster beds come in several different and distinct styles, including Georgian, Colonial, Tudor, French Chateau, and others. New four poster beds come in modern standard sizes, so modern mattresses and sheet sets fit them.

About Four Poster Beds

Four poster beds are seen as the height of luxury by many, with the four poster bed a piece of furniture that many people aspire to own. Four poster beds are normally manufactured from wood, and feature four pillars, one in each corner, that are either topped with a canopy or left freestanding. Four poster beds range from the antique, created in the 16th century and earlier, to the more modern. The older four poster beds in particular tend to be more ornately designed, with highly detailed wood carvings in the pillars and canopy. The earliest four poster beds were normally constructed from oak, and oak is still a popular material for these beds today. Other hard woods such as mahogany are also used, along with more modern alternatives such as pine. Four poster beds constructed from metal are also available, which provide a more contemporary look and feel. Some more modern four poster beds are created as reproductions of historical styles, while others are designed to look more modern. Some will feature just a short head board, while others will have the whole of the head board area covered in wooden panels. Four poster beds are available in a variety of sizes, including single, double and king size to suit all needs. While some are sold are just the frames, others will include the correct size of mattress, while some four poster beds will also include drapes in a variety of colours and fabrics that drape over the canopy and pillars to give a truly romantic look.
