Pharaohs in ancient Egypt had headboards made of ebony, sliver and gold. The English preferred headboards fashioned out of wood, sometimes with intricate carvings. However, it was the Greeks who created whacky and unique headboards! These headboards could of course be used for warmth while sleeping, or as support in a semi reclined position as well as a table on which they could eat their food! Here, the headboard took on the role of three pieces of furniture in one! It was during medieval times that people started realizing the dual function of headboards not only as a bed warmer but also as a valuable accessory to enhance the look of the room and prominently display the status and wealth of the owner. Thus wooden headboards with intricate carvings were high in demand for those who could afford them. Upholstered headboards also became stylish during this time for their comfort as well as the intensely luxurious feel they lent to the bedroom. Some wooden headboards form the medieval times were so strong that they can be found in an excellent condition, even today.
Headboards are designed to be easily fitted onto any bed, and once secured, they are very strong and durable.

Headboards are available to fit any bed, and are produced to fit standard bed sizes, from small single, to super king size.
