A few years back, I went on a search for a clean-lined upholstered headboard. After a bit of research, I discovered Headboard Ltd., a custom maker in London. For a similar look, consider the following upholstered bed options. N.B. We've included both full bed sets as well as standalone headboards.

Above: The Slipcovered Bed Set from West Elm features a muslin-covered headboard with a linen/cotton slipcover (available in flax, coal, or stone white); prices start at $699 for a twin.

Above: The midcentury-styled Tate Bed from Crate & Barrel is available in an array of different fabrics; prices start at $1,399 for a queen size.
