Claudette Headboard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Claudette Headboard I purchased the headboard in distressed white & am very happy with it. The unique shape & height is amazing in a room with high ceilings and would be a complete statement piece in a smaller bedroom. This is a headboard that can grow & change with your decorating aesthetic - traditional, eclectic, shabby chic, you name it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love headboard...except I bought two of the wood headboards for my guest bedroom and I love them. The only thing is I had an issue with trying to find a frame to attach them to. I bought universal ones, but the holes don’t line up, so I plan to buy a long large drill bit and longer bolts and make it work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Headboard and statement piece I bought this 2 months ago and finally got around to having a handy man attach it to the wall. We have an adjustable bed frame, so could not attach to the bed. We had to build out a spacer from the wall to attach the headboard to, leaving room for window sill and 1.5 inches for drapes to hang. Turned out stunning. Now I am going to have built some cornices above the windows in wood that will accent the lines of the headboard, I think. The curtains in this picture look blue, but they are actually dark teal and room darkening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Touch of Art I had been looking for a unique headboard for some time. The little dove on the headboard makes a unique statement. It fits my Queen size bed just perfectly and the finish is beautiful. I gave it the 4 stars because it looks more expensive than it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Headboard This headboard is more beautiful in person! The guys who delivered the new twin mattress, boxspring, and frame easily attached the headboard to the frame. The holes in the headboard matched perfectly with the new metal bed frame. With a Ballard Designs bedskirt, this headboard is an easy way to dress up a bedroom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Timeless I love birds and had been searching for a bed with a bird feature that could be used in any room and mix with any decor. This fit the bill. It’s well made and unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Queen Sized Bed Between Windows This bed is the answer for placing a queen bed between 2 windows placed for a full size bed b/c of the shape of the headboard...the bottom posts overlap the window about 2 inches and the rest of the headboard bits nicely between the windows. As an fyi...this bed requires use of a dust ruffle to give a finished look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! The first time I saw this headboard I wanted it!! Looked around and could not find one I liked better so I bought it for my guest bedroom. I wanted more of the pretty curves to show so my husband sweetly raised it and attached it to the wall. It's heavy!! Love the homey feeling the headboard gives to my room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A piece of Art I got this in Queen for a small bedroom where it is the focal point. It's lovely. The wood is gorgeous and the design is just what this rooms needed. If only there was a beatable in Mango.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! I was a little nervous as the reviews mentioned the headboard didn’t line up with the frame. As long as you put the wheels on the frame, there is absolutely no problem. I love the room with this sweet bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful headboard. I bought this headboard in queen size earlier this year for a secondary bedroom. The quality is excellent. It looks great. I bought the lighter white ways color. I now need to order the correct bed frame from Balllaed because my standard one was a little short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and unique Claudette Headboard. I love, love, love my beautiful headboard. It is all that I hoped it would be. Not only is it beautiful with unique charm, but the quality is excellent. I'm so glad I ordered it because, as always, I was apprehensive about ordering online but I could not be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whimsical decor We went from a queen to a king and needed a new headboard! I had previewed this headboard several times and finally pulled the trigger and ordered it! The delivery was great and the headboard is just perfect! Wood grain is rich looking and very solid! We are very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Design, Beautifully Crafted We love our new Claudette headboard and find it to be every bit as wonderful as the photos and description suggested. In an age where quality design and construction appear to be dying art forms, we have been so pleasantly surprised and pleased with our Claudette headboard. Even the packaging and assembly instructions were perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My granddaughters think I'm a princess. I am very happy with this purchase. I thought about this for a long time and read every review. The white finish is perfect. The extra fee to unpack and install the headboard was SO worth it. Fifteen minutes from doorbell to upstairs to exit. And they took all the packing with them. There were no problems attaching headboard to frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!! Beautiful piece of furniture. Just the right height for under my triple transom windows in guest room. It is heavy. I needed to raise our bedframe an inch on "raisers" in order for the holes in headboard to line up with holes in bedframe. I tried to use "adapter plates" on the bedframe, but it didn't work. The white frame looks great with my painted trim in room. Love the cute bird too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This headboard is awesome! We love this Claudette the Headboard! Very unique with a bit of whimsical. The wood is rough not smooth which gives a more rustic look. It was easy to set up too.
