Origins of the Canopy Bed

Canopy Bed in Teak

In the 1500′s there was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. Roofs were made of thatch at best. This posed a real problem particularly in the bedroom. Bugs and droppings and other stuff could fall in and mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That’s how canopy beds came into existence.
