We have classic four-poster bed ideas here for you to read and enjoy. 

Let’s get into a bit of history before we go mainstream. Four-poster beds were invented in the early 13th century and are now commonly known as canopy beds. Royal families used these beds in their castles. Back in the day instead of beams supporting curtains they supported fur to maintain privacy and also keep people warm when they were in bed. We all know castles back then were cold and not really like modern homes.
