Why The Bedhead?
Historically, headboards served to isolate sleepers from drafts and cold in less insulated buildings. Today their importance is mainly aesthetic. Don’t underestimate their importance – they add another crucial decorative element to the room, ground the bed’s position and act as the ‘pulling together’ piece of the whole bedroom scheme. A bedroom with a fabulous, upholstered headboard in a knock-out fabric needs little other statement ornamentation. The options are literally endless. And there is nothing like the comfort of leaning against one while reading the paper and sipping tea.
