Product description

Our Plain upholstered headboards are a lovely canvas for you to personalise to match your style – from a bold and bright print like Kiki or a soft palette such as Hopsack 02 as shown.

You can choose to have piping on the back to define the edge or leave it plain for a more streamlined finish. 

Choose from six shapes and two heights (measured from above the mattress); 76cm high with 5cm thick foam or 100cm high with 8cm thick foam (the narrow single and single headboards are 67cm high). 

The height measurement is above the mattress plus there is approx. 13cm of the board that sits behind the mattress.

We can also make custom shapes and sizes, please contact us with your requirements for a quotation. 

Fitting: Headboards can be either attached to your divan base with the struts provided or you can choose to have wall fixings instead.

Sending your own fabric?

Fabric quantities are based on a fabric that is no less than 137cm wide and quantities are based on a plain or small patterned fabric. For varying fabrics please ask and we can advise you on how much fabric to send. 

Please note, in order to avoid joins, we will automatically railroad plain fabrics, including velvets and all over small patterned fabrics. You must let us know if you don't want this to be done. (railroading means turning the fabric so using the fabric length along the width of the board)

Upholstered headboard buyer’s guide

You’ll discover a brilliant range of headboard shapes and sizes in our selection of upholstered headboards. An upholstered headboard does double duty in a bedroom: it turns the bed into a focal point and adds comfort. Our upholstered headboards come in two standard heights of 76cm high, which have 5cm thick foam, and 100cm high, which have 8cm thick foam. The only exceptions are the narrow single and single headboards which at 67cm high keep the headboard in proportion to the bed with which it’s combined. Our plain upholstered headboard range also provides a wealth of choice when it comes to shape. The six from which you can select are curved, serpentine, cloud, majestic, rectangular square and rectangular rounded. Our headboards fit beds of all sizes: 2’6” and 3’ singles, 4’6” doubles, 5’ kings, 6’ super kings, and 7’ emperors. But we can custom make an upholstered headboard for you if you need a different size or shape. Contact us with your requirements for a quotation. Read more

Choosing headboard upholstery

Headboard upholstery can work equally well in a plain or pattern, and we offer a wide choice of fabrics from the leading fabric houses to choose from. Our fabrics are organised into colour families, like neutrals, blues, blacks and brown, and so on, and you can also filter them into plain, floral, checks & stripes, and patterned selections either within the colour family or across the entire collection. This gives you the chance to narrow down the selection easily if you have something in mind, or simply scroll through and be inspired. You can also send off for free fabric samples and see your proposed headboard fabric in your bedroom. If you’re after a bedroom with a relaxing ambience, why not opt for headboard upholstery in a neutral tone, or the gentlest of colours? Want to make more of an impact? Use a deeper shade as an accent and repeat in other soft furnishings and window treatments. If pattern’s what you’re after, both all-over versions, or those with a repeated mid-scale motif look fabulous. Check out our Bollin Bird fabric as an example of the latter. Don’t forget to consider whether you want contrast piping to complete your headboard design.

Fitting and care of a fabric headboard

Our headboards can be attached to your divan with the struts provided, so they’re easy to add to your bed. To avoid damage in transit all of our headboards come with the fixing struts supplied loose. You’ll find that assembly is very straightforward. The struts need to be fixed on to the back of the board with the screws provided and then slotted over the mounting bolts on the back of your divan. If you prefer, you can wall mount your headboard. Ask us, and we’ll provide wall fittings that will allow you to fix it this way instead. Once it’s in your home, a fabric headboard is very easy to look after. Simply vacuum it gently with the upholstery attachment weekly to keep it dust-free.

Single headboards and double headboards

Both double beds and larger and single beds look more finished with a headboard in place, as well as being more comfortable. Our single headboards fit both 2’6” and 3’ single beds. For the narrow single 2’6” bed, the single headboard dimensions are W:76cm and H:67cm above the mattress and they can have 5cm or 8cm thick foam. If you’re looking for single headboards for 3’ singles, the single headboard can be W:91cm and H:67cm above the mattress with either 5cm or 8cm thick foam. Single headboards are available with the same wide fabric selection and the option of piping so you can define the edge of your headboard or create a more streamlined finish. You can also select from the whole range of shapes for a single headboard: curved, serpentine, cloud, majestic, rectangular square and rectangular rounded.
