The headboard and footboard used to be integral parts of any bed, essential to holding the whole setup together. But the way we make beds has changed a bit, and now, if you think about it, the ‘headboard’ is more of an idea than a piece of furniture. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a board or even part of the bed: anything that says, ‘hey, this is where the bed ends’ will do. So why not get a little creative?
