Many people recognize tufting as style that is often used in the design of leather couches. In some rare occasions, tufted headboards thoroughly echo this style by being covered in leather rather than fabric. The shape of tufted headboards is often curved or may even be formed with dramatic round peak in the center, while some more modern models are simply rectangular.
When choosing the fabric for tufted headboards, it is important to consider the quality as well as the color.

Over time, the fabric on tufted headboards can get dirty just as any other kind of upholstered furniture. It is important to choose fabric that is easy to clean and is stain resistant. Otherwise, the fabric may become permanently stained or discolored within just few years, or just few months with particularly weak fabrics. It is especially important to choose stain resistant fabrics when choosing very light colors such as white, off-white, or ivory.

One of the benefits of tufted headboards is that it can be covered in nearly any type of fabric to suit one’s tastes and the aesthetic of the bedroom where it will be installed. Some people choose to cover these kinds of headboards in bright colors, deep colors, or rich colors. Other people choose pale, natural, or muted tones so that the headboard quietly blends in with the rest of the room.

The section of an upholstered headboard that is covered in fabric or upholstery usually extends upwards from level that is just bit lower than the top of the mattress. This upper section is supported by legs that are usually made out of wood. The legs extend down and behind the bed. In most cases, when tufted headboards are installed, it is only the tufted section that is visible, the legs being obscured by the bed itself.
