Curvy Headboards

Have you noticed this major trend towards major headboards?

Planning a round up of the retail options, I started pinning examples in finished rooms, and quickly amassed two dozen pins.  Veranda did an entire slideshow here.

With more and more elaborate headboards showing up on the market, I've been thinking about the time cycle from magazine to retail, and it seems that a ton of these sinuous, curvy headboards showed up on the scene in magazines in early 2010.

These are all from Lonny, June/July 2010:

And Lonny seems to be on a trajectory of featuring headboards that are more and more dramatic.

March/April 2012

House Beautiful is in on the action, too.  Some favorites:

Of course, the Do it yourselfers get in on the action early.

Grace of Designsponge made her otomi version as early as 2009 (inspired by one she saw in the now-defunct Cookie magazine).

And the DIYs seem to be getting more and more elaborate, too, like this recent reader design on Little Green Notebook.

Isn't it fun?  You can read more about it here.

Need even more inspiration? Check out my pin board here.

If you are planning to make your own, there are a bunch of great tutorials out there, including Grace's how-to video, here.  (I also talk about strategies for challenging curves, here.)  If you have some bucks and prefer the retail method, come on back tomorrow and I'll show you the best options to be had.

Happy Monday!

  1. Being a DIY-er for quite some time, I think I can call this the pinnacle of works. With my ute tool boxes and a little bit of encouragement, I guess I'll make something like this soon.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
