I like upholstered headboards, they finish the room and they add a touch of sophistication, they look great both in modern, rustic and classic homes.
Both plain or buttoned, high or low, covered in plain neutral colours they are a great background for some fabulous cushions and bedcovers and you can always reupholster them every a few years if you change your mind.
They add serious impact to the room, they make rooms more inviting and they are much less costly than beds.
I like to use canapes in kids and main bedrooms most useful to store all the toys and winter blankets, spare duvets and pillows underneath. In guest rooms I also install beds with legs, as they aren´t used nearly so often.
I love a good -matching or not- valance, canapes are ugly things to look at and so best to cover them up, we do them with lovely folds and they are the finishing touch for the beds.
In the studio we have a large array of fabrics in linens, cottons and velvets, Ikats and also plenty of weather proof & washable materials to choose from.
