What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Four-poster bedNo British colonial decor lover’s home can be complete without the hallmark four-poster bed. These beds look formal and are dressed with flowing drapery in materials like light-weight cotton, linen or silk – the drapery incorporates animal and botanical prints, ikats, paisleys and batiks to give a timeless colonial appeal.Not to forget, most four-poster beds had provision for mosquito nets; this was extremely necessary for protection against mosquitoes that are widespread in the tropical climate of India.Note: The original European furniture that was transported to India by the British was made in softwood which warped in the humid climate of India. Local Indian craftsmen were engaged to replicate designs of the European four-poster beds and other pieces of furniture in fine workmanship for the British bureaucrats, the British army officers and their families.
