Why Custom Hand-Crafted Headboards Matter
Headboards are a lot like formal-wear: They look a lot nicer and fit with your style better when they’re hand-made to your specifications.
When it comes to headboards, there’s truly no better option than a custom hand-crafted one. We speak from experience—Edward’s Headboards founder Edward Boycott has been producing custom furniture for over 50 years. We learned early why customers prefer high-quality, hand-crafted headboards: they’re built to last.
Unlike mass-produced headboards, custom headboards are handmade to order with precision and attention to detail. The “pride of ownership” our customers have from designing a headboard to their specifications is a direct result of the “pride of craftsmanship” our team has in bringing those headboards to life. By purchasing a custom headboard from Edwards Headboards, you are future-proofing your décor with a piece of furniture that, with a little care, will last a lifetime.
The traditional downside of made-to-order headboards is the length of time it takes to produce them. That’s no longer an issue. With so many mass-produced options getting stuck on a container ship somewhere between here and China, hand-crafted headboards can now get you the custom options you want from a headboard without the huge difference in delivery time.
Design the Bedroom of Your Dreams
Your headboard isn’t just any piece of furniture, it's the starting point to designing the bedroom of your dreams. After all, it is called a bedroom. The bed is the centerpiece of the room, and your headboard is the centerpiece of the centerpiece. Headboards frame your bed, and due to their prominent placement, draw your eye to their design.
When you (or any other visitors to your bedroom) look at your headboard, is the eye drawn to something beautiful and uniquely you? If not, set the tone for your entire bedroom by creating a beautiful and functional headboard that matches your exact style and décor.
Our headboards are designed to complement any décor style, from traditional to modern. Does your design style skew classic? We recommend the elegant Opulence or the simple beauty of the Felicity. Are you looking for something to turn heads? The Pandora and Serendipity offer a design forward approach that are both contemporary and timeless. By choosing a custom headboard, you can create a space that is uniquely yours. Our talented craftsmen work as closely with you as you need to craft a headboard that not only meets your design needs, but also fits seamlessly into your bedroom space.
Attention to Detail
You may have heard of the upholstery term double-rub count. For the uninitiated, It’s the furniture and upholstery equivalent of thread count, and the number associated with it is typically intended to inform the buyer how many times they can sit on a piece of furniture before it starts to appear worn. This traditionally has not been an issue for headboards, as you don’t sit on them. It is, however, important for our headboards, as Edward’s Headboards recommends wall-mounted headboards.
Why does double-rub count make a difference for our headboards? Because if you choose a wall-mounted option (which we recommend), you can actually sit in bed and lean against our upholstered headboards. We even encourage it–quality craftsmanship isn't just for aesthetic value, it’s all about comfort and durability as well. Plus, all wall-mounted headboards are compatible with adjustable beds. (And of course, if you have a slanted wall behind your bed or a window, we can usually accommodate your setup with a bed-mounting bracket).
We offer many different fabric choices, which can have a double-rub count of anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000 or higher. Do the math, you sleep in your bed (at most) 365 times a year, which means no matter what option you select, your custom headboard will be built to last.
