Were dusters really intended to keep dust balls under the bed, or are they actually intended to hide your extra storage place or give the dog a place to go in a thunderstorm? I'm not sure but I do know that without the duster, otherwise known as bed skirt, the bed looks unfinished. Lately there has been a trend towards box pleated dusters. They have a tailored look and are more interesting than the traditional shirred skirt. The pleats can vary in size from 4" to 8", at the discretion of the interior designer unless there is a pattern. If so you want to be sure that the workroom bases the pleat size on the design repeat as is shown in this photo. Note the way the repeat is incorporated in the pleats.
