Is there anything that spells luxury in a bedroom more than a four poster bed?  Romance, privacy and the feeling of being a member of royalty in your own home can all be accomplished through the use of this one item of furniture.

The four poster bed was originally designed to support curtains or drapes on the sides that were meant to protect the VIP in the bed, usually a wealthy person or a member of royalty, from the nasty drafts that came in through the windows.  The curtains were drawn for comfort and privacy and the poor servant slept nearby on a mat on the floor. Fortunately, today’s modern homes provide us with plenty of warmth and privacy so we can enjoy a four poster bed simply for the beauty and function.

A four poster bed is versatile enough to be used in any style decor.  For example:
