Canopy Bed

A canopy bed is a decorative piece akin to a four-poster bed. A canopy is identified by four vertical posts at each corner extending up from below the mattress, forming a frame above the bed. A piece of fabric draped over the posts and frame creates a ceiling or canopy effect over the bed. Design by Douglas Dolezal
