Karen Egly-Thompson added this to How to Style a Four-Poster Bed6 July 2018

Designer Cindy Rinfret took a slightly more traditional approach with this bed design for a Douglas VanderHorn Architects project in Connecticut. She paired an upholstered headboard with a layer of drapery behind it and partial panels at each side of the headboard. The fabric canopy is set within a shaped wood frame with a graceful gathered, fringed valance on three sides. Something else to take into account with a canopy bed is the fabric type and yardage required, which contribute to the cost. Some fabrics, such as sheers and solid-coloured linens, don’t have a visual front or back, while a printed or woven fabric does. So any valance or drapery panels visible from both sides will require fabric on both sides if you’re using a printed fabric. In this case the gathered valance needed fabric on both sides, but the drapery at the head needed fabric only on one side, since it’s against the wall. Rinfret notes this bed required about 15 yards for the blue fabric on the headboard drapery and interior valance, and 10 yards of the floral fabric for the outside of the valance, as well as 15 yards of trim.Browse through images of four poster beds
