Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Historically drapes were used to surround the bed to prevent drafts and cold.  The luxurious fabrics used created a sense of wealth and luxury.  Today we use headboards to create a focal point in our bedrooms.  Headboards are an integral part of bedroom design, from a modern take on the historical drapes to the current trend for large and over-sized. Is your bed a 'head above the rest'? 1.
