I do not like four poster beds with lots of befrilled curtains and ruching and fabric. I do not like canopy beds. I do not like thick turned posts. I like them clean lined, with slim posts and modern.
These are my picks.
Okay, the last one is a bit of fun (great for Jonathan Adler of course), I don't think I could sleep in a disco four poster like this.
Sadly, beds like this do not pop up in antique shops in Melbourne. Nor are they easy to find in more modern furniture shops. Perhaps the best way is just to have it made by a furniture maker?
