A Dark Wood Four Poster Canopy Bed

This is a typical type of bed used in Morocco usually made in dark wood with four posts that extend quite high above the mattress. A bed canopy or ceiling is used to create a private space and fortunately helps with repelling mosquitoes too. The canopy can be made by draping a swath of fabric above the bed connecting to each bedpost.

Quality Bedding and Accessories

Scatter cushions used in the bedding selection are great as these create an interesting layered and textured look. These cushions are also handwoven by Berber women using 100% organic wool. Some pillows and cushions are found to have intricate traditional Rabat embroidery and geometric designs. Interestingly, Rabat embroidery was created as far back as the eighteenth century.
