When it comes to bedroom furniture, a four-poster bed is guaranteed to make a design statement. Whether your decorating style is modern or traditional, finding the right bed, bed frame and mattress is top of the priorities list – who knew fairy tales contained helpful design advice? Because we spend a third of our lives in bed, finding the right piece of bedroom furniture is essential for a restful night’s sleep. Regal-looking four-poster beds aren’t limited to the canopy beds of the past (although there are some beautiful minimalist updates on this style); you can find everything from reworked country styles to luxury boutique-hotel chic, from chunky wooden bed frames to streamlined metal four-posters. Whatever your preferred interior style, we’ve chosen a selection of our favourite four poster designs to help you find your dream bed. 8 hours uninterrupted sleep each night? Yes please.
