Why Choose Leather?
Leather is a luxurious material that adds a touch of refinement to everything it touches. Leather can look totally masculine when rendered in deep colors like espresso or classic colors like tan. When updated in white or black, it takes on a thoroughly modern appeal. Leather wears well over time. It is more durable than regular fabrics and takes on a warm patina as it gets older. That said, it is probably wise to keep delicate suede away from children's bedrooms. To maintain, vacuum or wipe down your headboard with a damp cloth.
Leather Headboard Style
Leather headboards are available styles ranging from formal to casual. A simple rectangular headboard in leather patchwork is a simple yet stunning choice. Go for a leather headboard with a scalloped edge for a more formal and eye catching look. Try a feminine look with a white leather headboard accented by silver leaf. Diamond tufting and pretty carvings are truly gorgeous details. Simple channel upholstery against dark wood in a low profile design is another option with a more urban vibe. For added panache, a tufted leather headboard in deep mocha that is ideal. Its scalloped edge is finished off with wrought iron scrollwork set off by a stunning maple burl veneer.
