so, a quote in a recent article about canopy beds in the design & decorating section of the wall street journal caught my attention.
‘going to bed in my canopy…is almost like sleeping in a donald judd sculpture.’

canopy and four poster beds do make you feel like you are sleeping in a structure. or, in a room within a room.

ironically, donald judd really did sleep within a sculpture. a wall length fluorescent light sculpture by his friend dan flavin (1933-1996).
