CONSIDER THE MATERIALS
One area that is gaining ground is the quality of materials used inside a headboard. "We spend 30 years of our lives sleeping so it's not surprising that people are thinking more about the environment in which they sleep," explains Tara Craig, founder of Ensemblier. "Many headboards are typically filled with foam, which takes around eight years to compact and decompose. They also contain toxic substances, which are used to make them fire retardant."
