Carlyle Headboard

Inspired by the comfort and simplicity of an upholstered 18th century dining chair back, the Carlyle is one of our most popular designs.  Whilst still retaining elements of simplicity, the scalloped corners enhances a softening to a solid shape.

Ensemblier was founded on the concept of providing good designs to a retail market.  Inspiration was sought from a variety of places from references in the V&A art library reading room, to picture frames and tombstones.   Pivotal to our initial of ‘good design’ of elegant, thoughtful proportions, was to support traditional highly skilled craftsman and use traditional, natural, sustainable materials.   All our headboards are custom made to our clients’ requirements. 

The frames are solid beech, dwell jointed, made either “wall hung" with a mattress slip or “to the floor” with a cut out to accommodate for skirting. Being of frame construction rather than board with a foam interior as so many of our competitors are, the frames are traditionally webbed with rubberised hair, cotton bumpf and calico. 

Our entirely bespoke Atelier headboards are loose hair with lambs wool skin wadding.  Our headboards are designed and manufactured to last a lifetime and beyond, in that they can be recovered, and will not crumble in 8 years, like the toxic chemicals of foam. 

All our headboards carry an embossed and numbered Ensemblier brass tag, to ensure authenticity, and are encased in a protective calico travel bag for storage and transportation.  

For 100 cm singles, 120 cm small doubles, European 1600 Kings, and finishing details please contact us.

We pride ourselves on our unique collection of designs, inspiration taken from years of scouring archives, books, directories and acquiring old pieces.  Our collection is a basis and template point to work with our customers on unique pieces, that our investments pieces.  We therefore, take our intellectual property incredibly seriously and will actively pursue any infringements of this.
