An Overview On 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.

DWYM 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.

The Headboard Buying Guide

  • When searching for a wingback headboard, consider the design of the piece and how it fits in with the rest of the bedroom. There are headboards that feature classic straight lines and an upholstered surface. They are elegant yet neutral in color and sometimes accentuated by small tufted button accents and metal studs. They can mesh with a number of different decorating styles. Other models are upholstered with beige fabric, with a quilted wingback and button-tufted surface. You’ll even find headboards that come in a dark grey, and feature a button-tufted design with standout polished silver nailhead trim down the sides.
  • Be sure to check that the wingback headboard is available in the size you need. The Flash Furniture Cambridge Tufted Headboard is available in Twin through King, while the LUCID Mid-Rise Upholstered Headboard comes in Twin XL, Full XL and King XL, as well as all of the traditional sizes. Some models, however, may only be available in Queen or Twin size.
