Antique Headboards

It’s often said that the bed is the most important piece of furniture in any home. This is the centre of your sanctuary, the place where you can rest, relax, sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. But what’s a bed without a beautiful antique headboard? Our wide selection of antique headboards are all unique in their own way. They bring a story into your home, whether they’re carefully carved from solid wood, made from polished brass or feature delicate patterns.

An antique brass headboard with Rococo embellishments can add some Mediterranean flair to your boudoir. An ornate headboard in wrought iron with art nouveau influences is romantic and whimsical. And a grand antique French headboard that once took pride of place in the master suite of a chateau can bring grandeur and gravitas to your space.

Peruse our antique headboards at your leisure and add historic comfort to your bedroom. Find your one-of-a-kind today.

You could select old English oak or opt for the more exotic teak and mahogany from further afield.
