Iron headboard. The beauty strength and value of the iron headboard and base are cherished by all those who own one. In the later part of the 19th century artisans hand poured and polished iron bed frames. When World War I started they stopped as the iron was needed to make weapons. The end of this war saw handmade items replaced with assembly line products. New iron headboards now come in many different powder-coated colors and finishes. If custom is important to you then this is the way to go. Make sure your headboard is made from cold-rolled steel as it has a higher tensile strength and will not dent like hot-rolled steel. Antique iron headboards are not cheap but they do come with a real sense of history. A new iron headboard is comparable in price to a standard timber headboard and base that don′t have a lot of carving detail.
Bring flowers. In a mostly white and pattern-free room a floral headboard stands out. The effect here is one of natural abundance with the riot of blooms and foliage bringing life to the cool calm room but the blue-only tones keep things transitional rather than cottage-y. Note how the geometric patterns of the pillows dressing the bed tilt the balance to the contemporary too.

For folks who eschew anything that’s too familiar there’s a whole world of novelty out there just waiting for a little imagination and an appreciation of the eclectic and unexpected. Check out this collection of alternative headboard ideas that venture into the uncharted territory of world maps architectural salvage mixed materials and more.
Fourposter with headboard. The 15th century saw the invention of the fourposter bed. With or without draping fabric this design became the rock star of the furniture world with only the truly wealthy owning such a status symbol. Ash mahogany and oak were just a few of the timbers used during this time. With reproduction furniture the harder the timber species the more expensive the piece will generally be. More intricate designs tend to add to the overall cost too. This Juliet-style reproduction fourposter with canopy and headboard has delicate gold-painted details giving the room a worldly sophisticated feel.
Stay sharp. This room turns the pairing of floral headboard and geometric pillows on its head with painterly blooms on the pillows and a tailored design on the headboard. In a warm color the headboard ensures that the room is a cozy haven without compromising the smartness of the design. Want to make a high-ceilinged room feel warmer? Follow this room’s lead with a cocooning dark neutral for the walls. With crisp white for the ceiling and molding the period features are still noticeable.
Built-in canopy. This hybrid canopy-headboard has a lot going for it but the most striking feature is its integration into the room’s lighting design. Two bedside pendants provide focused light for nighttime reading but the soft glow emanating from the sides of the wood headboard and overhang boost the room’s romantic ambiance. The decor’s emphasis on texture more than color and pattern ensure that the custom bed and lighting take the spotlight.
