Just make sure about the type of wood that is used to manufacture the solid wood frame of bed you purchase. Oak and pine are considered the best for bedroom furniture. Plywood looks good but is not sturdy enough. Particleboard again is cheaper than oak or pine but can bend over time with the weight of the mattress. The only drawback is the heavy weight of wood. But its durability beauty and elegance far outweigh this minor drawback.
The terms modern and contemporary when used to describe furniture is often interchangeable so much so that the common man gets confused when people refer to one or the other. While modern could refer to a school of design contemporary could refer to a time period - e.g. furniture pieces from the 1980s could be referred to as "contemporary" 1980s furniture. However for practical purposes a modern frame of bed and contemporary bed-frame could both have the similar clean simple style and uncluttered design.
Canopy frames have always represented romance and even to this day they enjoy this reputation. The canopy or curtain is what sets it apart from other modern frames. Canopies made from silk velvet calico tapestry or even sheer materials are used to give a romantic atmosphere to the bedroom of newlyweds. The modern addition is the panel which never existed in olden days. These can be of different lengths and the canopy material color and print can be varied depending on the theme than one wants to convey.
