We offer a sport draping service whereby we can dress the bed with any fabric of choice. The service can consist of the basic fabric being wrapped around the canopy, to hanging curtains or, providing a dressed solid roof with hung curtains. Apart from the superior style and presence, this four-poster bed had a practical purpose. The bed would have originally been decorated with a high muslin cotton material to prevent mosquitos from biting the occupants in bed. The advertised price doe not include drapes.
Full Draping Cost
To supply the material and labour to create custom tailored drapes (on wooden sliding rails), along with a solid roof that is lined with pleats and a central starburst ring (as seen in the pictures), the cost is around £1,900. This cost will vary slightly depending on the size of the bed.
Partial Draping Cost
If you only wanted the drapes and sliding rails (i.e. no roof), the material and labour cost to create custom tailored drapes (on wooden sliding rails) would be around £500. This will vary slightly depending on the size of the bed.
