It’s time for some indulgence.
There are very few things that bring as much warmth and charm to a bedroom as a dark wood floor and a 4-poster / canopy bed against a large floor-to-wall window draped in sheer curtains. It has an incredible, sensual effect on anyone who sees it for the first time. The 4-poster bed is the oomph factor of a room that stands out magnificently no matter how much drama is going on around it.
In the South, where I grew up, poster beds are hard to come by. I can’t remember the first time I saw it; it must have been only in the last decade or so. And in my ignorance, I always thought their primary objective to was to tie a mosquito net. Little did I know there was this magic piece of furniture with the power to transform a room.
I have compiled a list of 7 poster beds (four-post beds) that are available online for purchase. If you are unsure of how it would look in a real bed room, I strongly recommend touring Asha’s home for how classy it looks.
I personally like beds without storage (no scope for dust accumulating beneath) and a high headboard.
1. King-size low platform four-poster bed from Home Centre
2. Citadel poster bed without storage from Wooden Street
3. David Poster Bed in Dark Walnut Finish from Pepperfry
4. Striado Four Poster Bed from Urban Ladder
5. Vintage Charm 4-Poster Bed from The Yellow Door Store
6. A carved Queen Bed in Mango Wood from Fab India
7. A King Size Canopy Bed from Asian Arts
I bought a four poster bed from Insaraf for our home, but I strongly advise you against buying from the site. While the dining table had scratches all over and the top layer peeled off within months, the bed was squeaking since the day it arrived.
Quality wise, my experience with both Pepperfry and Urban Ladder has been good.
Second last is good if you like to buy lighter in colour and third last is good if you would like to buy dark in colour Bed
Thanks Brij. Like your choice :) It’s a combination of what we like, too.
