Five Favorites: Wooden Beds with Angled Headboards

After two years, I was ready to part ways with my right-angled headboard, which I fought with every time I tried to sit up and do some laptop work in bed. My mishmash of creatively arranged pillows was not a good enough solution. Enter the angled headboard, which provides exactly the support I was looking for. And it turns out there are plenty out there. Here are five I like, priced from low to high. 


Above: From Ikea, the Nyvoll bedframe in light gray, $179.

Above: After looking at–and testing–lots of models, Muji Ash Bed, $555-$675, is one I ultimately went with–and I’m happy to report it took 15 minutes to assemble.

Above: The Dondra Bed from CB2, $799-$999.

Above: Crate & Barrel’s Varick Bed, $1,099-$1,299. 

Above:  Le Lit De Julie (The Julie Bed), from Montreal-based Objets Mecaniques, $2,500.
