The History of Antique Headboards

Beds with headboards have a long history as essential components to a comfortable bedroom. Their original purpose was to block cold drafts at night to help people remain warm and sleep comfortably. Over time, they became a way to showcase one’s social status using quality materials and ornate designs.

Upper-class Europeans had massive beds in the 16th and 17th centuries that were heavily decorated. Some styles included oak headboards with detailed carvings and colored curtains affixed to two or more bedposts for decor and privacy. Other types included brass or wrought iron with curved details and simplistic headboards made of ash, oak, or mahogany.

Antique headboards from Fireside Antiques can add a sense of classic luxury and charm to your bedrooms with elegant design and stunning craftsmanship. Explore our selection today to get inspired!
