An Overview On Wingback Headboards

Having a stylish headboard helps complete a room. Not only is it a statement piece, but a headboard can also help set the mood of the room as well. Eclectic pieces made out of old barn doors, for example, scream cool vintage and eco-chic, while more classic lines have a modern appeal.

A wingback headboard is a classic and elegant design, reminiscent of the namesake chair with “wings” on each side. Most wingback headboards have soft, curved lines and intricate details. Many wingback headboards are button tufted and feature upscale hardware. Others are crafted out of luxurious fabric and have a sophisticated feel.

When looking for a wingback headboard, decide what kind of mood you want to evoke with the piece. If you’re going for glamour, you may want to look for buttons or studs with intricate designs. If clean and modern is the style you’re going for, you may want to choose one that is a dark color with a flat back.

Because wingback headboards are often covered with fabric, keep maintenance and cleaning top of mind. You don’t want to purchase a fabric that may stain from your hair product or start to pill as time goes on. Also keep the color in mind, ensuring it coordinates with your bedding, curtains, rug and other fabric in the room.

DYWM Fun Fact

Did you know that the “wings” on a wingback headboard used to serve a very logical and necessary purpose? While these days a wingback headboard is purely decorative, used to set the mood of the room, there was a time when the wings were put to good use. In the past, the wings were used to trap warm air near the head of the bed, to keep the person in bed nice and warm. As a result, people could sleep comfortably without using too many blankets or bedcovers. Originally, wingback headboards were ideal pieces used in cold climates and cool mountain areas.
