How beautiful are canopy beds? They are fun for kids and of course the perfect romantic canopy bed is a wonderful addition to any bedroom . There is a touch of elegance and a lot of wrong ideas about the history.
Some say the canopy bed wasn't originated in order to stop bugs and animal dropping from poorly made roofs? It is a myth. It actually was invented to give privacy to royalty who had servants sleeping in the same room. Still others say it was primarily related to stopping insects and not really a privacy matter. What do YOU think? In Latin konops means a mosquito or a gnat by the way. Do you remember the 70s trend of buying parachutes and putting them above the bed as canopies? I think that one died out fast!
