Circle, Arched, and Camelback Headboards
When you want to add a little bit of class, a little bit of style — curvy instead of square is the way to go! A circle headboard has curves all around — the only flat edge is the one on the floor or behind the bed.
And these rounded headboards are just scalloped circles!
Arched and camelback shapes have straight sides and curves on top. A basic arched headboard has just a simple curve from one side to the other:
And the gentle arch looks oh-so-good with some lovely wingback arms!
Or how about a reverse arch? Lovely!
The camelback shape has a flatter curve on either side and builds to a taller curved arch in the middle.
And a wing or two never hurt a good headboard…
And these lovely inset camelback plank wood headboards add such texture to the room!
If you mix it up a little bit and add in a few other styles, you get some lovely headboards like these, creating what we’ll call a double scooped arch headboard
And these graduated camelback curves are gorgeous!
And what happens when you start getting creative with the corners of your headboard? Keep reading for beveled headboard styles and more!
