Design Idea to Steal: A DIY Headboard from a Natural-Fiber Rug

October 19, 2015

We like this idea from French interior designer Serge Castella, who took woven natural rugs and turned them into headboards in the bedroom of a guest house on Spain’s Costa Brava. Here’s a look at the idea and a few ways to re-create it.

 Castella uses a stiff rush mat, custom-made by Spanish artisans, behind a queen mattress. Photograph via Serge Castella Interiors.
