A live-edge headboard coupled with side tables crafted from the same grain of wood can instantly give the contemporary bedroom a huge facelift. Sometimes you can head in a completely different direction by combining posh polished bedside tables with the rustic live-edge headboard but repeat the woodsy charm using a bench at the foot of the bed.
We end with a headboard like no other! The magic ingredients are Luan (also spelled Lauan) plywood and metallic-sprayed painter’s tape. Staining the plywood adds contrast and using the tape to create a geometric pattern adds a retro yet modern vibe.

Add to it styles such as industrial bohemian and shabby chic that also invite the slab headboard gleefully and you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
Simple wooden panels framed beautifully or even raw unpolished wooden blocks with their distinctive pattern work brilliantly here. By keeping the backdrop as neutral as possible and the rest of the decor unassuming you can turn the headboard and along with it the bed into the focal point of the room.
Despite the rigid constraints of contemporary style you can still move away from the mundane and opt for a dashing headboard that is both exceptional and style savvy. A headboard with chevron pattern is a cool choice for those who might want to introduce pattern without moving away from the neutral color scheme of the bedroom while a black and white headboard with polished glint is an undoubted showstopper in any bedroom. Get imaginative without breaking the mould!
