Best Canopy Beds

Add a little romance and a lot of feng shui to your decor with the best canopy beds ever! The romance of the canopy bed! Sssh, don't tell anyone, but I am deeply in love with canopy beds. Yes, others may tell you they are in love with the internet, well OK so am I and for that matter, so am I in love with writing online. And, connecting with other writers and peeps. B-U-T, canopy beds are a whole 'nother matter of love!

Mantra Canopy Bed by Mauro Bertame
We will feature my "top of the line" canopy beds that I would love to own and that maybe you too would love to own!

IMHO, a canopy bed can add a little romance to your life. If my budget would afford it and I had high enough ceilings, here is my dream pick! It's often referred to as the Mantra Bed, the Feng Shui Bed, or a contemporary canopy bed.

You can seriously add a little romance and perhaps a little feng shui to your bedroom with the best canopy beds!

This is a very sharp and unique bed designed by Italian designer Mauro Bertame' observing the principles of Feng Shui. Ah, can you feel it already, the Feng Shui?

Celeste Sky Bed

Celeste Sky Bed

Here is another favorite of mine! The Celeste Sky Bed designed by Kris Van den Berghe is a new concept in sky beds that encompasses modern design conveying a cocooning tone with a touch of Zen!

Celeste is a mobile sky you can place over any bed; it transforms your sleeping area into an intimate sleeping hut!

Where do I find the Celeste Sky Bed? 

Cloud Bed
Add romance and perhaps a little feng shui with the canopy bed!

cloud canopy bed by courtney skott
OK, I know when you think of a "canopy bed," you don't normally think of a hardtop! But, this bed is so cool -- it actually transitions between the canopy and sky bed.

Courtney Skott describes her design as being inspired by Ming Dynasty-era Chinese alcove beds, and the idea of the bed as a 'room within a room.' Here the form is updated, and the mobility provided by the casters lends itself to flexible, open-plan contemporary living spaces.

The overall form is pierced with a pattern derived from digital photographs of clouds taken on a trip to Patagonia. The cloud motif refers both to the Western association of clouds with sleep and dreams, and the Chinese symbology of clouds as a harbinger of rain and fertility.

Can I BUY the Cloud Bed?

Voyage Canopy Bed
I adore this bed designed by Kenneth Cobonpue and again, you'll note this is a variation on the "canopy" theme!

This bed is made of Buri, the core of the coconut leaf, which gives the bed a nature-like design. It's also composed of steel and abaca.

Would you believe? There's also an outdoor version of this bed. How cool is that? You can get it in a queen or king size too. OK, I want one of these!!!

Crimea Canopy Bed 
Add romance and perhaps a little feng shui with the canopy bed!

Crimea Canopy Bed
This beautiful italian canopy bed was designed by Vico Magistretti a world-renowed Italian designer. Wikipedia has a bit of his biography.

What I like about this particular canopy bed is its clean lines and versatility -- the bed is adaptable. This bed comes out from the idea of traditional canopy beds of the nineteenth-century and revised into a modern style.

The slim structure in white-lacquered iron creates an elegant color contrast with the gilt brass rings of the vertical supports.

WE81E Canopy Bed

OK, I will be the first to admit that when I found this bed that the name of it didn't particularly do anything for me aside from the "WE" in the title denoted a "you and me" and that CAN be romantic, right? Yep.

But, digging a little further on the Gervasoni website, I found that it was really short for their "Weekend" Collection. Well, how clever is that? This is another Italian design by Paola Navone.

The Riva Canopy Bed is romantic, affordable, and quite stylish!

The headboard and footboard grills feature an intriguing pattern of 1/2-inch scrolls, tied with detailed wire wraps.

Tall one-piece posts showcase beautiful, cast finials on top.

Best of all, the Riva hosts a simple linear canopy. It's the perfect place to drape billowing fabric to soften the architectural lines.
