This is undoubtedly the biggest reason why people are so head over heels about the live-edge headboard. It brings a certain rustic vibe to the contemporary bedroom, and you get this without a complete makeover that costs a fortune. If modern rustic is your style, then the natural-edge headboard seems like almost a must at this point! Apart from seamlessly blending with contemporary styles, it also gives you great design flexibility and lets you switch to a ‘completely rustic or farmhouse’ mode with ease. 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.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves, thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form, you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well, how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
Speak of space-savvy lighting and sconce always tend to spring to mind instantly as they require absolutely no foot space and are incredibly adaptable as well. Sconces in the bedroom trump pendants for when it comes to settings that are specifically crafted for bibliophiles and those who spend an hour or two each night glued to their iPads before sleep. It is flexible arms of sconce lights that make them such a hit and with the wide range of sizes and styles on offer, they feel as much at home in tiny kids’ rooms as they do in large, luxurious bedrooms.
Remember, though, that the attempt here is to pick and choose décor that complements the headboard. These furnishings should not overpower the image of the exquisite live-edge headboard and take away from its mesmerizing presence. If you have a bed frame that is entirely crafted from raw, natural wood, then let it shine through as well by keeping the bedding as simple and neutral as possible.
Leading the dynamic duo of bedroom storage units on display today is Andy with is circular silhouette and charming little presence. These lovely units can be combined as modular units to shape nightstands that range from a simple single drawer unit to configurations with multiple drawers.

Available in fun colors and both matte and glossy finishes, this cool unit also adds geometric contrast to minimal and contemporary bedrooms.
We did already allude to the big reason why live-edge furniture and features like the reclaimed barn door are so very popular again. Many of us want to discover and re-discover our roots and once again find that connection with all things nature-centric. This means bedrooms are increasingly becoming less sterile and more cozy, with each one having a personality of its own. Instead of trying to mimic the ‘catalog version’, homeowners now want bedrooms to reflect their personality and to act as relaxing getaways that transport them into a different dimension. Live-edge headboards definitely are a big part of this tranquil image!
