Much like the bibliophiles who needs plenty of space next to their bed (and then some more) there are many of us who simply cannot work with a tiny bedside table that offers limited surface space. The classic nightstand with a couple of drawers is still as cool as ever and many fabulous designs like the MEMO Night table from Baxter also bring along with them a dash of sculptural beauty. Be it the round nightstand a mirrored beauty with plenty of glam one that is draped in golden glitz or mismatched nightstands for the couple who have different needs – the bedside table you pick is determined as much by the style of the bedroom as it is by functionality.
The headboards we are talking about have a solid wood frame basket woven in flax and polyester. The back of the headboard is covered in muslin. This headboard is available in different sizes – Twin with the dimensions of 40″w x 3″d x 62″h; Full that measures 56″w x 3″d x 62″h; Queen at 62″w x 62″h and King measuring 78″w x 3″d x 62″ h. Headboards with several other colors and fabrics are also available. Price varies from some 280 to around 400 Euro. Minimal assembly is required for this headboard. Delivery takes one to three weeks. We’re sold!
This is undoubtedly the biggest reason why people are so head over heels about the live-edge headboard. It brings a certain rustic vibe to the contemporary bedroom and you get this without a complete makeover that costs a fortune. If modern rustic is your style then the natural-edge headboard seems like almost a must at this point! Apart from seamlessly blending with contemporary styles it also gives you great design flexibility and lets you switch to a ‘completely rustic or farmhouse’ mode with ease. Add to it styles such as industrial bohemian and shabby chic that also invite the slab headboard gleefully and you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
We constantly talk about how essential it is to repeat accent colors and unique features in a room to give the interior a more curated look. This is no different in the case of live-edge wood and the bedroom. A live-edge headboard coupled with side tables crafted from the same grain of wood can instantly give the contemporary bedroom a huge facelift. Sometimes you can head in a completely different direction by combining posh polished bedside tables with the rustic live-edge headboard but repeat the woodsy charm using a bench at the foot of the bed.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
Maybe you are not all that interested in ample color and are looking for a bed that is a touch different from the mundane and usher in contrast without feeling far too overwhelming. Instead of bringing home a bed in striking yellow or red try out one in a lighter tone but with a dashing and bright headboard. The headboard makes up for the lack of color in the rest of the room and by combining it with matching table lamps and nightstands; you have a gorgeous bedroom that is both aesthetic and functional.
