The four-poster bed

No royal chamber is complete without a lavishly appointed bed. Make your bed the centre of the room by going big.

It doesn't get bigger than a four-poster bed. A wooden frame allows you to choose any colour you like, adapting the bed to your tastes. Drape lace curtains over the posters to complete the look.
