Bay Area–designer Will Wick (wickdesign.com) really loves canopy beds. “If I can fit one in the room, I’ll do it,” he says. “They’re so cozy.” His only complaint is that many four-posters feel squat. So when he designed this room for a San Francisco show house, he partnered with a metalworker to create a custom bed that soars. “People are afraid to get a bed close to the ceiling because they think it will feel cramped,” he says. “But I thought, Let’s take that chance.” Wick draped the taller-than-usual 8½-foot posts with wispy linen voile and kept the rest of the room spare to let the bed speak for itself.
