This feature in it is because of presence of a curved headboard and footboard that is outwardly curled at each end’s top. This footboard is often found to be shorter than the headboard. History records suggest when these were used traditionally; it did have a feature imbibed in it because of which it could curl inwards as well as outwards. Those days they were known to be made of wood. The popular practice during this period was to place them in the centre of their rooms. The objective behind this was to highlight it as one of the primary pieces of furniture of that particular room. Generally, people took immense pride in showing their prized possession.

As well as reading a book late at night, they can watch TV or listen to radio. Besides, they usually feature extra storage space so things you want to be within easy reach can be store in them.
