Trend: Iron Beds

I've been thinking a lot about our bedroom lately - I haven't done a thing to it since the movers set down our furniture a year ago - and one of the things one my list is a bed. We have our mattress and box spring on a bed frame with a skirt, but no headboard or footboard. I've been planning to buy a headboard, but lately iron beds have been catching my eye. Mostly Italian canopy beds, and then my interest wandered to just about any canopy bed with a thin black frame.

As much as I'd love to emulate this look in our bedroom, I don't think it's terribly practical for us. We have the space and height now, but no telling what our next bedroom will be in a couple of years (oh the joys of renting). So for now, I'm looking and dreaming! And maybe living vicariously through some of my clients!
