Going for baroque. If you’re going with an upholstered headboard the more luxurious the fabric the better. This bordello-chic bedroom as its designer calls it is furnished with a red velvet headboard framed in white solid wood. Red sheets and a white-faux fur throw contribute layers of richness.
Mexican sueño. Every night this bed takes its owners if only metaphysically to their favorite resort in Los Cabos. An exact replica of the resort’s bed was custom made by DeMejico. It features solid mesquite hand-pounded iron nails and fabric that was hand made by Mexican Otomi artisans.
Four tufted panels create a very tall headboard. This is a good trick for matching the scale of a room with very high ceilings bringing the bed up to chandelier height. Similarly when confronted with the vast spread of concrete and high walls in this loft an attention-grabbing headboard keeps the bed from getting lost and looking puny. Adding sconces over the matching nightstands visually extends the width of the bed. Together these moves create one big piece that can stand up to the scale of the room.
You can invest so much effort in bringing home the perfect mattress that fits your physical needs but if it’s not matched with a headboard that meets your aesthetic wants even the most comfortable bed in the world won’t draw you in fully. Complete the package with a headboard that allows you to enjoy a bed’s visual and tangible comforts in equal parts.
