Edwards Headboards exists to enhance people’s health and well being by providing them with fashionable and comfortable sleep products at prices they can afford

                               Our History

                                          1971 to 1974

After taking a courses in upholstering and a year of practice on friends and relative's furniture Edward and Rose Boycott opened a part time reupholstering shop in their garage.  They had too much work for Edward and Rose to handle and hired their first upholsterer.  He was employed by them for over 25 years.

                                           1974 to 1978

Through offering quality workmanship and fair prices they built their business enough that Ed was comfortable quitting his job at Chryslers and they went into business full time.  In 1976 they started purchasing frames and  building sofas and chairs.

While still working out of their home workshop they rented a store nearby and hired a decorator to sell their reupholstering, custom furniture, plus  furnishings and accessories

                                            1978 to 1982

Business grew rapidly.  They moved from their home workshop to a much     larger building where they added a woodworking shop and started           building their own frames for the custom furniture they manufactured.

                                             1982 to 1992

   At this time they expanded into a             large main street factory and                   adjoining showroom.  By being able       to provide what customers wanted         and the quality they were looking for       business boomed and it was time to       expand again.

                                                 1992 to 2006

 

    After renting for all these years they        decided to build. They moved into a        12,000 square foot building. Their            sales skyrocketed to well over                  $2,000,000 annually and they                  employed 18 skilled workers.  In              2006 they made the decision to close      their business and retire.

                                          2007 to 2013

Lakefront Shop.   Edward and Rose had a beautiful                  lakefront home built with an added                workshop where they started a part-time      re-upholstering business.  It is here              where they started building custom              upholstered headboards.  Edward                realized the demand for them was high.        People wanted to read or watch TV in          bed before going to sleep or a coffee in        bed before starting the day.  They                  wanted something soft and fashionable        to lean their head against instead of a hard wood headboard or wall.  This is what led Edward to come out of retirement and re-establish Boycotts specializing in headboards naming it "Edwards Headboards" He vowed to make this new venture live up to the fine name that Boycotts had established over their 37 years in business

                                    2019 to present
