Full Speed Ahead – Headboard, that is!

A striking headboard is a statement piece in any boudoir; in fact, you can design a room completely around this one item of furniture. From tufted to upholstered (or perhaps both), having a pleasant place to rest your head can inspire the imagination. With thousands of colors and fabric choices, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Tufted Headboard

Upholstered Headboard

Bed crown cornices are another wonderful way to anchor your bed. Whether upholstered, painted or intricately carved, a cornice’s lovely coordinating drape often sets the scene for style.

Monogrammed Bed Crown Cornice

Of course, there are also beds with intricate wooden headboards, lush canopies or even simple posts. A headboard can be made from something re-purposed, like an old barn door, or even painted on the wall to get the style without sacrificing the space.

Sitting Pretty: Choosing the Right Nursery Glider.

Stiff hardwood rockers were once a nursery staple but, with the introduction of cushioned gliders, rocking around the clock just got far more comfortable. The gliding and swivel motion of today’s nursery glider will soothe baby to sleep in comfort and style. But where do you start when making a selection?

Choose a glider style and fabric that not only works well in the nursery but that can easily transition to another space once baby is grown – or that can be used again for future family additions.

Since most gliders come with upholstered cushions, consider whether you prefer a glider with attached or removable cushions.

The covers on detachable cushions or slip-covered gliders can often be machine washed for easy clean up.

And what you see isn’t only what you get – use your own material to customize your creation or choose from a variety of fabric selections. If you dream it, we can design it.

Finally, don’t forget to pamper those tired toes! To prop your feet up, a stationary or gliding ottoman is a great addition or you can opt for a glider recliner.

There are even double gliders for extra snuggle space.

Whether it’s the whimsical, traditional or contemporary you crave, start weighing your glider options early to allow for ample delivery time on custom orders. No matter what you decide, you’ll sit pretty in our selection of great glider styles or your own customized creation. Learn more about customizing your glider and ottoman by browsing our selection of gliders online or by calling a PoshTots Design Consultant toll-free at 1-866-POSHTOT.

And don’t forget as a leap-year special we are having a sale on select custom gliders all month long, SAVE 20% OFF all the gliders pictured above (and more)!
