This headboard was beautifully made, which is why I gave it an excellent rating. However, it got damaged in shipping and ended up with a very noticeable nickel-sized tear in the fabric. O.co was absolutely great about refunding me immediately for the headboard, but the whole thing was disappointing after waiting so long to get it. It took about 4 weeks from the time I ordered it until it arrived. The directions were easy to follow and it was pretty quick to install. We actually put it together and attached it to the bed before we noticed the tear (we were working behind it the whole time). But once we looked at it from the front, the tear was glaringly obvious. One thing to be aware of (besides the shipping)-if you don't have a deep mattress, there will be a gap of several inches in between the bottom of the headboard and top of the mattress due to the length of the legs. Our mattress is barely 10" deep and we had about a 2 inch gap. The legs are metal and are adjustable, but only so much before they run into the wood frame of the headboard. If anything, it would be better if the legs were 2 or 3 inches shorter so that there was more adjustability, which would have prevented the gap. That is the only complaint I have about the headboard itself. The shipping: It came shrink-wrapped in a standard cardboard box, and besides the shrink-wrap, it only had cardboard corners on each corner. Something must have pierced the box-just above the cardboard corner of course- because when it arrived, the box had a tear in it and I could actually see white through it. It was so white it looked like styrofoam, and it didn't occur to me that it was the actual headboard until we had it up and were looking at it. This fabric is VERY white and all things considered, there wasn't a smudge on it anywhere, just a hole. Like I said above, we were working from the back of it the whole time and in my excitement to finally get it on the bed, I forgot all about the tear in the box. I don't know how it could be better wrapped to avoid this in the future, but for this reason, I would be hard pressed to recommend it to anyone I know. Because it's damaged, O.co didn't want it back, and I'm currently hoping that the carrier will want to come pick it up because it's taking up a lot of space in my living room.
I love the color and quality of this Linen Headboard and it was fairly easy to attach it to our Cal King bed frame. The width of the Headboard was important to me because I needed one as narrow as possible because I have two quite large mirrors (3'x5') hanging on each side of the bed and most headboards have wider widths, even though they are for Cal King beds. Some are wider to accommodate a box frame in which to put the Cal King box spring. I did not want a frame because of space. Our master bedroom is large, but I also wanted a comfortable arm chair to the right of the bed. This Linen Headboard was the perfect size, color and design for our newly decorated master bedroom.
We recently upgraded to a king bed and needed a new headboard. My old queen headboard was the Skyline curved nailhead style in linen gray which I loved, so I knew I wanted to go with the same brand. I ordered several swatches from the Skyline Furniture website (took about a week and a half to receive) and I was most impressed with the light grey velvet--looks high end and the color is neutral (could go with almost anything). Other swatches I received were the platinum micro suede which is very similar to the light grey velvet but not as attractive IMO. I also got the linen talc which was very pretty (mix of cream and light tan fibers).
I put this headboard together by myself (did need help carrying it upstairs). It took about 90 minutes. In order to attach the wings, I leaned the headboard against the foot of my bed with the headboard upside down and the tufted side touching the bed. Once the wings were attached I tipped the headboard onto the mattress and slide it back and then tipped it right side up against the wall. Then I attached it to the bed frame. All the screws lined up and all pieces were included. It definitely would be easier to do with two people. If you want something easier I'd recommend one of the skyline styles without wing backs. Those are super easy to put together.
One thing that I did not consider is that the wings block a lot of the light from my bedside lamps. I'm getting used to it but it caught me off guard at first. This style definitely makes a statement and adds a lot of presence to our room.
This headboard is very pretty but when it stands on the floor on its own legs it is not as high as the picture shows. It has to be mounted higher onto the bed frame in order to get the height. Everything else is really nice so not returning it.
I first saw this headboard on *** a year ago and have been looking for it ever since. I was nervous when ordering, knowing that returns would not be an easy option. I could not be happier! Solid, good quality. The color is fabulous. Not a bright white, but a light colored oatmeal (no yellow or gray tint). The fabric is nice too for being a blend. Has some white woven in with a bit of texture. Very, very pleased with this purchase!
There were no surprises - it looks exactly as it does in the picture. Nice clean aesthetic, looks great in my all-white bedroom. Fabric is easy to spot clean....would definitely rec to someone wanting a white headboard
I just received my headboard. It looks just like I expected. It was delivered quicker that I expected. The headboard was easy to assemble. There were a couple of small tears on the sides of the headboard on each side. I am worried that the fabric is going to continue to tear over time. I am calling customer service today to replace.
Looks amazing. High quality. Fairly easy to assemble. My husband even commented how nice this headboard is. I looked at many headboards online and this one was the best looking at the best price. Very happy with this purchase.
Seriously, obsessed! My husband was out of town so i was able to assemble this in just an hour or so all on my own. Once out of the box each piece was not very heavy at all (and i had to carry it upstairs making 3 turns on the staircase along the way) i laid it on the bed, assembled and screwed into the bed frame all in less than 2 hours! In real life it does not appear as tall as the photo makes it look, but we have a window behind us so that does not matter to me much. Some of the window still shows some light over top. I almost bought the grey, but this looks so great, my all white walls, 1930's tudor home with vaulted ceilings and and wooden beams. Fits right into the style i was going for. You will love it!
This headboard just arrived today in less than a week after ordering from Overstock. I was very pleased with the meticulous workmanship and white twill fabric and it was very easy to install. I can't wait to finish off two more bedrooms with further purchases from Skyline Furniture!
I LOVE this headboard! It is well made, a beautiful rich purple and less expensive than comparable headboards from a furniture store. It arrived sooner than the stated delivery time and we are very pleased with it. Perfect to lean against when reading or watching television in bed.
I was uncertain about ordering this custom headboard because I could not get a fabric sample. I wanted to ensure the color would be pure white before I made the commitment to place the order, but after shopping retail, I realized that the price was too tempting to not to take a chance. I made the purchase without the sample, and now I can say I am not disappointed. First of all, my order came today, a month before the projected delivery date, which was a real surprise. I could not wait to unwrap it. This headboard is beautiful and the velvet fabric is good quality, pure white and soft. The nail heads are a pewter shade, not a shiny silver, which I love. It was easy to assemble (by myself, I am very handy, 5' 1' and 120 lbs but if you are not handy, do not have the right tools - I used a ratchet wrench and a flat-head screw driver and strong you may need another set of hands). All-in-all, it took me a total of two hours to get this standard king sized headboard inside my house, up a flight of stairs to my bedroom, unpack and attach to my bed frame. I am so happy with this purchase. I will update this post with a picture after I have painted the room. I am so happy with this purchase.
This headboard is absolutely beautiful and really adds such a lovely color to the room. Very pretty and it's wearing well, too. arrived in perfect condition and wasn't too difficult to assemble. Nice and comfortable for reading in bed, too.
Pros: Pretty micro-suede fabric (it isn't velvet), Plush, sturdy.
Cons: the back is some cheap fabric , which is different from the front, so you can't expose the back of the headboard. The staples on the back are visible too. The design of the legs made it impossible to fit on my metal bed frame. I made do but it isn't attached as firmly as it should be. Also, don't drop a screw or nut down in the leg, it is impossible to get out without tipping the bed over or a super frustrating fishing expedition.
