High Poster Beds

Buy the best high poster beds selected and recommended by interior designers. By Eliza Bush.

Four poster beds are making a comeback. Once considered antiquated and trite by the more modern interior decorators, now the high poster bed offers a sense of comfort with a style that has lasted for centuries. The models available are sturdy, well-built, and can come with posters that are unattached to each other, or with crossmembers. See collection for details.

Description

This bed is a true showstopper with its dramatic turned posts, distinctive headboard, and open footboard, all embracing a pattern similar to that of a rolling pin. Beyond that, it exudes an old-timey charm that is guaranteed to transform any space.

Designer Advice

As a solid wood piece, there’s no doubt that it will last for many years to come given its excellent quality. In addition, it is offered in two versatile colors. We recommend picking the natural cream finish if you’re going for a farmhouse-style look. It’s soft, chic, and inviting all in one. On the other hand, the Morocco brown looks splendid in Spanish Colonial and Tuscan interiors alike.

This piece is not your usual bed design but rather an attention-grabber. It boasts a stately appearance with burl inlay, claw feet, and ornate details throughout. A rich cherry wood tone adorned with gold accents completes its elegant and dramatic look.

Designer Advice

This high poster bed is traditional in all its splendor, and therefore we recommend pairing it up with equally majestic pieces of furniture. The good news is that this bed comes available in a complete set. However, you could also give your bedroom even more personality by opting for individual pieces in colors that contrast/coordinate with cherry, such as white, maple, or perhaps something a bit darker like walnut.
