Four Poster

Recently, one of the clients I am working with desired a four poster bed with a modern edge. While people may assume a four poster bed is usually frilly or whimsical, this couple was looking for something cool and sexy. Of course I got down to one of my favorite parts of the job - research.

Here are some of the beds I proposed. As you can see, some have platforms sitting on the floor, some have headboards, some metal and some wood finishes. If you are in a romantic mood, you can also drape a sexy sheer fabric over the top of the canopy like the Ceylon or Mash Studios Bed. Which do you prefer?

Max Alto Alcova

Moheli Baldacchino

Edward Ferrel & Lewis Mittman Sutton Place Bed

Asha Baldaquin

Bolzan Letti - Ceylon

Room & Board Portico Bed

Mash Studios Canopy Bed


  1. These beds are beautiful. I always thought of four poster beds for little girls rooms. These are mature and sexy! I love the first one.

  2. The Max Alto Alcova caught my attention sometime ago but its price tag is enormous. In a similar style do you know of any suitable alternative?

  3. Unfortunately I have yet to find a less expensive alternative. The best advice I can give you is to find a local furniture maker that can create something similar. Good luck!


Would love to hear from you! Please let me know what you are thinking.....
