Modern Canopy Bed

There is something quite magical about sleeping in a canopy bed or four poster bed. Sure, it feels like you have stepped back in time or right into a fairy tale. But more so, a canopy (or four poster) bed seems to elevate the sleeping experience. It feels ceremonial. Royal. Extra special. And shouldn’t it be? You spent almost a third (okay maybe a quarter for some of us) of your day in bed. Why not make it magical? Now, in our New Orleans home we have an antique four poster in our master bedroom but I am considering a modern canopy bed or four poster bed for our guest room. There something about the juxtaposition of old and new that always excites me. And why shouldn’t our guests feel like royalty?

Problem! Hunting for a beautiful modern canopy bed isn’t easy. There is a lot of terrible, or just generic, options out there. I have been scouring everywhere but have only come up with 3 I would even consider. And thank you CB2 for offering two of them – good to know someone cares about a modern canopy bed besides me.

This one is a beauty but it will cost you, $3099 CDN for a Queen at CB2

A minimalist black tubular canopy bed if you want a little less bling, $1099 CDN at CB2

Modern minimalism from Room & Board, $1099 USD for queen size.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
