Styling Canopy Bed

Generally, some may feel that canopy beds tend to have feminine details. While this may be true, there are a few things that can be done to give your canopy bed a contemporary, metropolitan chic look that appeals to both men and women. First of all, go for a canopy style that doesn’t include any s-curve or curvilinear details; minimal styling and geometric inspired design will give your canopy bed a modern appeal that suits well in just about any bedroom.

If you’d like to add some stylistic flair to your canopy bed, light fabric or curtains can be added and tied off to the posts for a much more dimensional appearance. These fanciful draperies can also serve a functional purpose for privacy and colder nights as they help keep warm air confined to the interior of the canopy when drawn. In addition, if you live in a humid region prone to mosquitoes and other pesky insects that fly about, curtains or even mosquito netting will keep them from flying in while you sleep.

Overall, canopy beds are designed to bring an antique, historical feel paired with

For thousands of years, a dovetail joint was created by a skilled cabinetmaker using small, precision saws and wood chisels. Tiny angled saw cuts were followed by careful cutting by a sharpened chisel on both sides to avoid splintering. One board had tiny “tails,” and the other had the larger “pins,” carefully measured to match and fit together exactly. When the joint is expertly executed, it is a thing of beauty, and a secure joining of two boards that can last for centuries. A little glue cements the connection, and a good dovetail joint has great strength and durability.

Hand cut dovetails were used to hold the sides of drawers together, but also to join the structural members of case furniture. Hand made screws and nails were relatively expensive and could rust and expand, sometimes cracking the wood they secured. Glues of the period sometimes weakened. Dovetails have great strength, holding pieces of wood in perfect alignment over long periods of time. Simpler country furniture often had larger dovetails, or even a single tail and pin.

Genuine hand-made dovetails like these were the standard of good furniture craftsmanship until about 1870, when American ingenuity developed the
