Bedroom Covet | Custom Bedheads

  • Bespoke furniture like a custom bedhead reveals a designer’s ability to personalise the bedroom. This edit explores seven designers’ creative take on the bedhead, revealing inventive ways to customise through materiality, form and storage. Through each design, the bedhead transcends functionality to become a centrepiece in the space.

    01. Pacific House

    Design: Alexander &CO.

    Location: Sydney, Australia

    One of the hero materials in this clifftop home is shop-sawn American oak, which manifests in the custom kitchen joinery, ceiling beams and bedhead in the primary bedroom. The bespoke design creates material continuity within the home while enhancing the bedroom’s functionality with its generous storage.

    02. Fisherman’s House

    Design: Studio Prineas

    Location: Sydney, Australia

    Another clifftop home features a custom bedhead made of striking green Tinos Verde marble and smoked oak veneer. But it doesn’t just stop there; Studio Prineas have placed a bathtub made of the same marble on the other side of the bedhead, creating a seamless connection with the bathroom through materiality.
