If you’ve ever yearned for a getaway that will allow you to escape from the rush and pressure of your ordinary work and domestic routines, slip away anytime you want in a bedroom that demonstrates the carefree feeling you desire. One thing that is sure to bring the sun and sand home to you is a wicker headboard, designed in the island tradition.
You may have fantasized about a remote island in the Caribbean or Pacific – a sun-drenched spot where you are surrounded by nature and it feels like a million miles away from deadlines, ringing phones and humdrum daily duties. Take the fantasy further and you may dream of secluded horseshoe shaped coves with sandy beaches lined with palm trees that rustle softly in the tropical breeze. Your accommodation is a cool cabin constructed from locally available materials, with furnishings to match.
If that island escape isn’t actually on the cards right now, you can still import something of the flavor of an exotic hideaway into your own bedroom design at home. Wicker furniture and accessories, all created from natural fibers, will give you that organic feel. With wicker headboards, perhaps accompanied by other co-ordinated items of wicker furniture, you can create an environment at home that evokes a sense of where you’d really like to be.
Our wicker headboards will help bring that island look into your bedroom. The frames and legs of our wicker headboards are made from sturdy and durable plantation grown hardwoods. For the body of the headboard you will be able to choose from a variety of weaves and materials, including abaca, sea grass and rattan peel.
One headboard that may transport you in your imagination to a tropical island retreat is our aptly named ‘Islander’ rattan headboard. Horizontal rattan poles on the hardwood frame create a pleasing textured effect and a subtle color scheme that will immediately evoke exotic natural locations.
Our other wicker headboards will create a similar effect, owing to their organic materials and attractive woven designs. Sea grass, abaca and rattan peel weaves help to create strikingly attractive geometric designs that have both contemporary styling and the hand-crafted feel typical of the décor that you might expect in an island beach cottage. Impeccable workmanship meets creative design, for maximum, yet always sophisticated, impact.
Subtle, natural color variations are easy on the eye and further enhance that harmonious and natural visual effect. Accessorise as you will, with crisp white or neutral cotton or linen in funkier, tropical colors and prints. Wicker headboards are not demanding in terms of color co-ordination, and will go well with whatever soft furnishings you already have.
You’ll also find that wicker headboards are easy to co-ordinate with existing wood furnishings. Go for blond wicker, or for golden brown, deep chocolate or warm russet shades that will go with any and all of your existing bedroom furniture. Make your bed the focal point of the room. A wicker headboard will enhance this even further.
