Upholstered Beds, Oh My!

I have been sourcing Upholstered Beds for a new client and I was reminded of how many great options there are now. I have always been a fan of them. They are so cozy and inviting. Perfect for those who like to read in bed and they can really warm a bedroom.
There are so many fabulous shapes! I love how the shape of the one pictured above is set off by the cream linen fabric on that gorgeous wallpaper.
This one sings in red velvet and nail head. The unusual placement of the art is striking, don't you think???
I like the headboards with wings. It is as if your bed is giving you a little hug. If you are considering one of these headboards, be aware of the depth of your nightstand. It needs to come far enough beyond the wings to be useful.
The height and exaggeration of the squares on this bed is wonderful for a more modern feel.
I love the combination of the painted finish, textured fabric, and trim with nail head on the bed above. So sophisticated and yummy. I think I might have a little crush on it.
This squared off headboard with tufting in leather is very masculine and contemporary. I did a similar bed last year for a couple in pearlized white leather and it is gorgeous.
This is a sweet combination of cream milk paint finish and plain textured fabric and would make a charming bedroom.
I love this dressy combination of a french carved frame and rich silk damask fabrics.
Twin upholstered headboards make a wonderful, sophisticated Guest Bedroom.
Or darling children's rooms. The above headboard is my absolute favorite headboard. It is available all sizes and I love, love, love the detail at the tufts. I am dying to use this!!! Hint, Hint, Hint.
And, of course, they are available for dogs as well.

No matter your style, there is an upholstered bed that will fit your look.

  1. That Steven Gambrel image with the twin beds gets me everytime! Love the group of headboards you have collected here!

  2. Fun collection. I just emailed it to a friend who is looking for some headboard ideas. I hope you get a client who wants to use the kids version. I think Serena and Lily has some cute ones as well.

  3. Love a padded headboard!! Our own is leather and comfy...but these are just beautiful!!!

  4. Wow some of this furniture looks fantastic! I love that you put the dog bed there at the bottom of the post. Dogs need to sleep too right ;) I have to agree with you on the kids bed headboard. Super adorable!
