10 Favorites: Headboard Storage

Issue 80 · The Summer Bedroom · July 12, 2013

Ever since I lived in a tiny apartment in Tokyo, I have been obsessed with corralling clutter. For some reason, I feel this most in the bedroom, where I want to see little more than a few books and a lamp. Headboards can be a great solution for storage, and I particularly like the built-in wraparound treatment in the first image (seen in a French home). Here's our roundup of noteworthy headboards for keeping clutter in check.
