Bed Canopy Tops, by Us

tops for canopy beds - dd

Bed Canopy making began for us in the early eighties, with three generations of our family being involved in creating the canopies.

Since we formed Heirloom Canopies (est. 1993) and Hand Tied Bedding Co. (online est. 2001), we have helped so many customers achieve the canopy bedroom of their very best dreams. Our canopies are always beautiful, excellent quality, and always USA made.

Canopy Types – Explore Our Shop Pages

Bed Canopy Tops, Covers, Curtains

  • Bed canopies, also known as bed testers, tops, toppers, covers or coverings.
  • Long bed curtains, for your tester or canopy bed’s side rails, head and/or foot rails. Available as sets, or for headers or footers only.
  • Valances, “short bed curtains”, for your bed’s perimeter railings. Rather than having your bed top covered, like our canopy tops/covers, these short styles bring a decorative touch to your bed, but allow you to leave the top space open.

Canopy Frames, Constructed of Wood, for 4 Poster Beds

  • Wood crafted frames or support rails, custom made, in order to transform your four poster into a canopy bed that will support your beautiful coverings. We offer a few more details on the lower section of this page, or visit our Wooden Frames Page, for ordering information.

Our Bed Canopy Artisan Techniques

Canopies Made by Knotting, Tying, Tasseling

We make our hand tied canopy bedding styles for you using expert knotting, tying and tasseling skills. This artistry has been around for centuries, but, the name reference for the artistry varies. You may have heard some in the furniture, antique, or bedding industries refer to our canopy styles as lace canopies. While others may say the covers are crochet/crocheted canopies. Also, because our knotted canopies’ patterned designs are made up of cotton tassels, some others may refer to the canopies as being made by macramé. Further names for the hand tied canopies include, fishnet canopies, knotted bed tops, fringed, or netted.
