When I was ten years old I desperately wanted a canopy bed, but I wanted one with intricate carvings and a full tester and ruffed curtains, preferably in purple. Ten year old Nancy was a little immoderate in her taste. Fast forward twenty years or so and I still love the look of a canopy bed, but my style is significantly more minimal than it once was. So I've created this roundup of modern canopy beds that are sure to look lovely in your modern, grown-up space.
