Boutique glamour

Who doesn’t want to recreate the feeling you get when spending the night away in a glamorous boutique hotel?

Luxury accommodations often use a mixture of shades from the same colour palette, a slightly eclectic mix of furniture, and a wide range of textures to create a cosy but chic atmosphere. If you’re looking to up the glamour stakes in your bedroom, the Therapur Bracken is a true statement design. It features rows of button quilting inspired by classic Chesterfield sofas and has a sophisticated and grand look about it.

Make it a focal point

One of the main reasons to choose a headboard is to create a real focal point in your bedroom – it should be the piece of furniture that your eye is first drawn to when you enter.

We recommend choosing a headboard that perfectly encapsulates the style of your room, makes a statement, and conveys your personal taste. When it comes to size, we have headboards for every bed from super king to single, so don’t be afraid to go for an oversized or large headboard. After all, once your pillows and scatter cushions are in place, half of the headboard is usually covered. It also gives you extra space for propping yourself up for breakfast in bed.
