Although headboard and footboards along with side and front rails are part of bed frames, the contemporary bed frames generally have only the headboard. Such headboard only beds often incorporate a ruffle or a valance sheet to hide the frames. Then again, canopy beds are also found in contemporary styles. In fact, if you look up the internet, you will find so many styles of contemporary bed frames that you will feel a little lost.
Canopy frames have always represented romance and even to this day, they enjoy this reputation. The canopy or curtain is what sets it apart from other modern frames.

The modern addition is the panel which never existed in olden days. These can be of different lengths and the canopy material, color and print can be varied depending on the theme than one wants to convey.
Bed frames are commonly made with different materials like brass, wood, and steel but look-wise seem similar in shape. The frames are made of four legs and two of these legs remain at the front side and rest two remains attached on the hind portion of the bed. The position of the legs makes perfect rectangle form; in some frame extension of legs are also found and these are called as bed posts.

Americans fell in love with this unique design and started manufacturing sleigh beds. The sleigh bed-frame usually curls outwards, so make sure your bedroom space takes into account this extra projection.
