Is your bedroom an extension of your living room? Do you belong to one of the growing number of families that gather in the master bedroom to watch a movie? Or do you guard your bedroom as a quiet place to relax away from others?
Then you’re going to love one of the most popular trends for home today: upholstered beds! Covered in padded fabric or leather – upholstered headboards for beds promise to turn your bedroom sets into a comfy place to hang out, not to mention, sleep… and they’re showing up everywhere. From European trade shows to home decorating magazines to furniture stores, upholstered beds are right for the times, and they are, quite simply, hot!
Their popularity is especially evident at the Spring 2013 Furniture Market currently underway in High Point, N.C. There, leading manufacturers like Hooker Furniture are introducing many new styles of upholstered beds.
It’s no wonder these soft, cozy and sexy beds are popular, considering the benefits of a soft-sided and (ended!) bed. It’s comfy to lean against, inviting to look at, soft to the touch, and quiet (fabric helps dampen ambient noise). And because it doesn’t match the storage pieces, an upholstered bed offers a custom look that feels personal and one-of-a-kind and serves as a stunning focal point, like this tufted bling bed from the Sanctuary collection.
If leaning back in your bed without propping up dozens of pillows appeals to you, check out some beautiful upholstered beds from Hooker Furniture. There’s the Sanctuary Collection’s bling bed already mentioned, or the soft wingback bed also from the Sanctuary Collection. And the dramatic Rhapsody Collection tufted sleigh bed is breathtaking. Or, if your tastes run contemporary, check out the more modern number from the Felton Collection.
Upholstered beds also factor heavily into new introductions at the Spring High Point Furniture Market from the Pinnacle Design award-winning Mélange Collection. This popular collection is expanding into dining and bedroom furniture… and includes three high fashion upholstered beds – each a signature piece as one-of-a-kind as the collection itself!
With a deep shelter headboard design, the shapely Lana bed boasts a modern attitude and swagger with a charcoal gray faux mohair headboard, footboard and rails over curvy metal silver feet.
Destined to become an icon, the pretty Quatrefoil canopy bed pairs an upholstered fretwork motif in a tonal fabric on the headboard with a clean, bright white finish on the bed frame and canopy. The look is feminine, eclectic and whimsical, but also gives off a ‘modern classic’ vibe.
Also in the Mélange collection, the unique Albion bed pairs a tufted upholstered headboard with upholstered insets on the nightstands and dresser!
There’s also an upholstered bed in the new Corsica collection and your choice of a carbon-colored or taupe-colored upholstered bed in our major new Palisade collection.
Upholstered beds are ideal for a classic or modern bedroom, and easy to mix with storage pieces like nightstands and dressers. With impeccable tailoring, neutral colors, high-touch fabrics and a touch of historic detail—whether button-tufting, wing-back, scroll-back or camel-back design – they’re simultaneously chic and casual… turning any bedroom into a stylish, relaxed and inviting destination for one… or all.
