I have never been much of a fan of four poster beds. Growing up we had one and if I wasn’t getting in trouble for trying to climb it then I was annoyed that one of the posts was obstructing my line of sight. In my adult life, I’ve always appreciated the drama a four poster brings to a space, especially when it has a lovely canopy but I’ve never pictured it as something I’d want in my own home. That is, until, Bernhardt introduced their Kensington Upholstered Poster Bed in a highly polished plated brass at last year’s High Point Market. Since that time, I’ve been swooning at every advertisement, editorial and designer portfolio that has pictured a brass, chrome or mirrored four poster bed. In a space where you don’t often see highly polished metals, I love the addition of these sleek and shiny beds to the bedroom. You totally have my permission to diagnose me with magpie syndrome while you look at my roundup below.
