“The king of beds and the bed of kings.” That’s how Houzz.com contributor Karen Egly-Thompson refers to the four-poster beds so often associated with romance and fairy tales. An old-fashioned four-poster bed remains a classic choice for the bedroom, and today these poster beds come in a vast array of styles and colors. Such beds have four posters, or columns, and sometimes poster-style beds support an overhead panel or canopy, thus they are also referred to as “canopy beds.” Today, four-poster beds are used both with and without canopies, and posts come in different heights as well to lend a more casual feel to these beds.
The Savannah Poster Bed above is from Universal Furniture and comes in both Tobacco, a rich brown stained finish, and Linen, a painted finish with a gesso texture technique. The Savannah Poster Bed is part of the Paula Deen Home collection from Universal Furniture. The height from the floor to the bottom of the box spring is 11.5 inches, and the bed is available with optional post heights. It comes in Queen, King, and California King sizes. According to Universal Furniture, this Southern-inspired furniture is “all about feeling good, safe and comfortable in one’s home."
