Canopy beds date back all the way to the Middle Ages. During this time of drafty castles and straw thatched roofs, it was actually necessary for survival to have such beds because by hanging the bed linens, you would block the cold and frigid drafts during the brutal winters. Then with the emergence of fireplaces in every room, the canopy bed became more of a decorating piece. Nowadays, canopy beds create more of a romantic feeling in the bedroom. The ornate and decorative design is enhanced by the draping linens that surround the bed.
