Design Spotlight | Leather Headboards

Grand Leather Headboard

Headboards are a stylish and luxurious bedroom accessory. Use them to create a focal point and to set the design tone of your sleeping space.

The first headboards were made by the Ancient Egyptians from gold, silver and ebony as a way to create social status; pharaohs with extravagant headboards were deemed more superior.

The Greeks and Romans designed their headboards to have a practical use. They provided warmth and back support as well as turning into a table for bedroom feasts.

In the Medieval Period headboards remained as furniture pieces which displayed social status. These accessories often accompanied four poster and canopy beds.

By the 17th Century, upholstered headboards were designed as a replacement to fabric drapery on canopy beds. Comfort became more important and the need to create elaborate bedrooms declined.

Today, the popularity of headboards is seeing a revival. These signature accessories are available in a wide range of colours, materials, textures and shapes to suit the aesthetic of your bedroom.
