These canopies were decorative as well as useful. Dropping from the ceiling or climbing from the floor, bed bugs living in and around the bed proved a constant threat. These canopies warded them off. Despite their expense and usefulness, even these luxurious beds still had flaws. Mattresses and pillows were made from straw, cotton or feathers stuffed in a bag. Sadly, this caused scratchy or lumpy surfaces. These ancient beds resulted in the popular term "hit the hay." While these beds were highly prized in the past, they were nothing compared to the improvements to come.
Many of these elegant space saving beds come with single or double sided drawers or cabinets, skilfully designed to ensure that they mount perfectly on the wall or in a closet and remain secure until they are lowered down to the floor. In this way, the space they take up is not lost as storage space, but is integrated into the structure of the bed. This is particularly of benefit for children’s rooms, since if they have a playroom doubling as a bedroom, the bedding and clothes are best stored within the bed, leaving their own furniture for their toys.
