Sleep Tight: 12 of the Best Upholstered Beds

Enjoy a stylish slumber on these super-chic upholstered designs

The modern take on the traditional upholstered headboard is anything but stuffy. Whether you prefer the classic buttoned and winged style of upholstered bed, or are looking for something uber-sleek and minimal for your bedroom, there are plenty of bed frames to suit.

Find those with elegant high-backed headboards for a sophisticated feel, such as the Cleo from, Penelope from Love Your Home or Rivas from Soho Home, to lower-slung models with relaxed, statement style, like the dramatic Xeni from Italian design firm, Gallotti & Radice or the Victoriano from Lema.

Lofty or low, the latest headboard designs are those with curved sides that gently cocoon you while you sleep. They make a sleek and stylish focal point too.

Most of the beautiful beds in our edit can be upholstered in a wide choice of fabrics, from sumptuous velvets and soft wools to casual linens – and in some cases leather – so they can be covered to suit your scheme.

There are those with traditional divan bases if you need extra drawers for storing seasonal duvets and other bed linen, and others with slimline legs for a more modern appeal. Just make sure you have enough space for clearance if you’re opting for a divan base.
