French Country - Headboards

A statement headboard can make an entire bedroom, and the French Country style headboard is particularly notorious in design circles for making what would otherwise be perfectly good bedrooms absolutely breathtaking ones. Almost always upholstered though sometimes caned, often with curved edges though sometimes rectangular, headboards in this style always imply luxury, history and elegance; setting the tone for not only the bed frame, but for the wall behind it and the textiles on the bed itself. Caned and whitewashed pieces are excellent pieces for evoking French Colonial and Farmhouse styles, where durability and resistance to climate challenges took precedence. Alternately, the upholstered, button tufted and gold leafed headboards make a strong and sophisticated statement reminiscent of the golden ages and great hotels of Paris.
