A Charpoy is a bed or cot used in India.  It has a wooden frame with woven webbing for the top. Some charpoys have very decorative webbing others are quite simple.

I took these pictures when I lived in India for 9 months researching Indian textiles.  The pictures were taken in Shrikalahasti, Andra Pradesh.
