Claudette Headboard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 279.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Claudette Headboard The Claudette queen sized white headboard is distinctive in our guest bedroom.
Date published: 2022-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Claudette Headboard I purchased the white headboard in king size. It is just gorgeous! The legs are the perfect height so my mattress is not covering the bottom of the headboard. I also dressed up the bird to match my decor. I used a chenille bedspread, shams and an exquisite bed scarf, all of which I embelished with pearls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order to Delivery, I couldn't be more pleased! I have wanted this headboard for YEARS and when I saw it in the Summer 2022 catalogue in black I just knew it was time to go for it! And I'm so glad I did! We have a Sleep Number bed which has a weird bracket for attaching to a headboard so we decided it'd be easier to just attach the headboard it to the wall. This will also help the curtains I have on order to hang well behind the headboard. My husband is a gem! He built a box from plywood and screwed it into 2 of the wall studs. Then he screwed the headboard to that box. Its perfect! I'm so glad I got the inside delivery as well. They opened the box in my driveway, brought the headboard inside to my bedroom and placed it against the box ready for us to install. Then carted away the huge amount of cardboard and packing material. Well worth the extra cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still in love I bought this headboard about three years ago and I still love it! I trimmed it with a little verdigris. The dove is so whimsical...would love another, smaller one for the other side of the headboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning headboard Beautiful headboard. I have been looking at this headboard for several years. Decided to order for my granny suite. Just love it. Very heavy, so decided not to worry about attaching to platform frame. Works fine just pushed up against the wall. Ordered the wood tone and it goes with my farm house look perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Statement Piece I love the unique and quirky yet elegant design of this headboard. Heavy, great quality and the wood stain is beautiful and rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice. Very pretty piece. I think the white is much brighter/whiter in person than as portrayed in the pictures on line. It was packaged extremely well and is a very sturdy piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable headboard This headboard is so well made, and just absolutely adorable! I struggled to find a bed frame that would fit the headboard, since the holes on the headboard to attach to the frame are a little high. For those having the same issue, I bought a bed frame that has a 7.5” underbed clearance. The frame I bought is called the “Higgins 8” expandable steel bed frame”. It is perfect! I love the way this headboard looks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic charm - with or without bird Love the unique shape and the whitewashed color. I chose to use mine sans the bird. It has what I would describe as a “rustic” finish which doesn’t diminish its charm. This is a very sturdy headboard with a lot of reinforcement behind its facade. It weighs a ton and is delivered on a pallet in a very large box. I had trouble lining up the mounting holes with my bed frame, but switched out the bolts (after a visit to the hardware store) with a thinner diameter bolt and it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Beautiful! We bought it in wood. Easy to install and arrived quickly. The bird adds so much character. You won’t be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my head board! But… I absolutely love this headboard and have gotten many compliments on how different and beautiful it is. I couldn’t decide on the wood color or white. My wall is a darker color so I went with the white. The shape and bird stand out very nicely. Now the ‘but’ part. I have a regular sized bed and the headboard comes in queen size. I called Ballard Design and asked if a regular bed would be ok. They were very helpful and nice. Told me about a part I could get to make the bed fit. They do not sell the part but told me where to buy it. I bought my part and had it ready when the headboard was delivered. I got the white glove service and was happy I did, this is a heavy piece of furniture! The screws that come with the bed are very thick. I had a heck of a time getting it to work. This was not Ballards fault and in no way takes away from the beautiful headboard. Just saying, make sure bed frame has a large opening to compensate for the thick screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perching bird headboard I love everything about this headboard. It's an unusual design, the multicolor wood goes with any other wood in the room, the perching bird is a surprise, and it's just the right size to not overwhelm a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Claudette Headboard, Queen This headboard is stylish and sturdy but whimsical and feels unique. I’m using this in my guest room/home office and it has elevated a formally unused room into a warm and inviting space. It gives good Zoom background, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not have known how much I'd love this piece I had no idea that I would love it this much! And it goes really well with my early 2000's contemporary dressers -- the exact wood grain and color. I would not have anticipated that! And the bird is just fun, Yay!
Date published: 2021-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty headboard! Very nice headboard. I cant believe how heavy it is. Packaged very well. I bought the white queen. Have the brown one in a twin. Had to drill a few extra holes as the frame was not high enough to store anything under it.
