The history of the four-poster / canopy bed
The earliest historical references to the canopy bed date back to the medieval period, around 1100. In the past, this type of bed was linked to the social status of the rich who liked to decorate their bedrooms in a lavish manner.
The term baldachin derives from medieval Latin 'Baldakius' and originally indicated a particular precious fabric produced in Baghdad and worked in Italy. With this fabric, the draped covers supported by 4 or 6 rods of the bed in the double bedroom were created.
The first models envisaged that the cover was independent from the bed, with the passage of time it was integrated into the bed frame creating a real frame that was decorated with special sheets and fabrics.
Initially the four-poster bed was used for the size of one and a half squares, it was not until the end of the 16th century that the bed took on its current characteristics, expanding to the size 160 x 190 cm.
Over the years we find many variations of the classic four-poster bed, for example in France we find in sumptuous aristocratic homes of the 18th century beds with suspended canopies, with a structure without columns but attached to the back.
While the 1750s saw the birth of the alcove bed, called Lit a la polonaise, here the canopy is carried by four S-shaped metal studs, with a crown-shaped or rectangular girdle, the height dome is curved and the curtains are gathered close to the curved pillars.
Today, in modern times, the canopy bed is used in large, spacious rooms, with an essential silver or black frame and white cotton fabrics, to create a timeless evergreen effect but with a modern twist.
