|iron canopy |
Style dates back to 19th-century France. Feminine, grand. Floats nicely in the middle of a room. With a canopy of fabric, it’s even more romantic; bare, it’s architectural.
|modern plaform |
Low, minimalist, masculine. Substantial, but works well in small spaces because it has no footboard.
This form dates to the 15th-century, but there are very modern options. Tall and commanding it can make ceilings seem higher.
Glamorous and luxurious, yet handsome. The padded back is comfortable for reading in bed. Nail-head trim and piping can be used to accentuate the shape.
Style dates back to 17-century Europe. Intricately carved wood headboard. Opulent and majestic. Consider keeping other furnishings spare and modern.
Wood versions hail back to the Roman Empire. Contemporary upholstered ones are more comfortable.
|country swedish |
Delicate but unpretentious. Straight or curved high-head- and footboards, with panels sometimes upholstered or caned.
