Development Alert: Basic Curtained Beds, for a Lengthy Winter’s Nap

These days we’ve been noticing a comeback of Dickensian curtained beds: cover varieties with wrap-around material and built-in nooks and alcoves that turn into comfortable bed-boxes when the curtains are drawn. Each initially added heat, darkness, and a little bit of privateness and make for additional restful hibernation in the present day. All you want is a candlestick for the bedside.

Check out a number of covetable cloaked examples, many (maybe not coincidentally) from London and past.
