There’s nothing quite like a beautiful bed (made or unmade!). It’s the place you start your morning and end your day, so creating an environment you enjoy is key. The bed provides a focal point within the room, creates balance and sets the tone for the aesthetic and mood of the whole room. When it comes to choosing what sort of bedhead or frame is right for you there are a few considerations to take first – your room size, the elements on the wall it will be against and of cause the overall look you are wanting to create.
So today we’re going to delve into some of the different choices when it comes to picking your bed frame / head types.
Timber bedheads bring a sense of warmth and structure to a space like no other. With high resistance to wear and tear, timber is not only effortlessly tactile but also incredibly easy to maintain. It also lends itself to the potential for shelving to be easily integrated, providing a great styling opportunity, a space to keep those bed side essentials or your latest read! In addition, timber is also a great choice if a wall mounted or freestanding bedhead is what you were after as it holds great structural integrity. We love the subtle detailing of the ribbed oak panels in the design by Soho House.

We always love a good upholstered bedhead! They are cosy and comfortable and provide the perfect back rest for enjoying a new book or indulging in a good old Netflix binge. Upholstered bedhead styles are highly versatile as you can create a variety of shapes, materials, colours, patterns and detail elements. This vast range of possibilities means that they can be perfectly integrated into any style of home or design. Whether its a relaxed slip cover or velvet panels wall to wall that you desire, any look can be create with the right upholstered look.

We love the tactile nature of natural materials and the qualities they being into an interior space. Rattan bedheads in particular give a nod to the wicker craze of the 70’s but (dare I say) now utilised in more contemporary and effective ways. Rather than wicker everything, everywhere, the material can be used as a feature and complemented with other materials and colours. The beautiful hand-crafted character of the material is what we love the most, lending itself to more organic yet classic looks. Well known for its durability and hardy nature, rattan is also an eco-friendly sustainable material. Rather than needing to chop down whole trees to obtain the material, rattan is sourced by stripping the vines off from the trees, leaving the tree standing and the forest intact afterwards. A bedhead that is stylish and sustainable? How could you go wrong!

Leather is another great choice for design flexibility, with the capability to be formed into any shape, style or detail you desire. Details such as contrast stitching, raw edges, pipping and folds can be a beautiful way of adding an extra layer of character to your leather piece. Another great thing about leather is that it’s easy to clean, wears well and ages beautifully. So whether its a round tan leather bedhead or dark textured hide piece, you will have yourself a statement bed design that adds an industrial edge.
