Over-sized headboard at Four Hand showroom.

Yesterday I wrote about all of the amazing side chairs I spotted on my latest visit to High Point Market.  Today, I am so excited to share with you another design trend that was present at Market – over-sized headboards.  The desire for drama in design seemed to be everywhere at Market this Spring.  Designers were creating drama with colorful and patterned upholstery, modern twists on classic shapes, and new scale on pieces like the traditional headboard.

While on tour at Hickory Chair, I came across two dramatic headboard designs.  This extra tall one in a suzani print would take any bedroom from ok, to wow!  Don’t you think?

I also loved the idea presented in what I like to call “the pretty in pink” room.  While these white beds sport a low frame, drama is added with fabric placed behind the bed that extends up to the top of the wall. The effect is an attention-grabbing fabric canopy.

The Christopher Guy showroom showcased some of the most amazing headboard designs I have ever seen.  The one above is inspired by Coco Chanel, and is every bit as chic and classic as she was.  The shape and design is incredible.

And this headboard at Christopher Guy is a complete work of art.  Fabric is upholstered onto wooden squares, and two headboard frames are brought together to create this massive piece.

Drexel Heritage also showcased higher headboards that make a statement with unique shapes and upholstery.  I love the nailhead trim.  Classic.

What do you think about these dramatic headboards?  I am all about drama, and am so in love with this new design trend.
