Viollette Camus Bed Frames February 10, 2018 10:52:45
A solid wood bed-frame is considered by many to be stronger than a metal frame, which is prone to rusting and warping. If maintained properly, solid wood bed frames can last for many years. Dust periodically and wipe down with soapy water once a year. If your solid wood bed frame is painted or varnished, then repaint or re-varnish when it wears out and your solid wood bed-frame will even be able to last for more than a generation.
The traditional four-poster bed as seen in Regency England has become modernized with canopy bed frames. This style once seen only in museums has been given a new lease of life by modern furniture makers who have seen their potential as an elegant yet sturdy bed frame. The modern canopy frames still have the four posts in each corner. These can extend to four feet from the ground and have supports from which curtains will hang. The posts are no longer ornate but have a simpler more utilitarian design that is easy to dismantle and clean.
