Louis Headboard is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are very pleased. While we have not had it very long, thus far we are very pleased. It has excellent detailing and it is what we expected. I will note that Ballard did not have a very good sense as to delivery time. We were told it would take far longer than it did. Ordinarily that would not be a problem but we were going away so we asked that it be delivered after we returned in the third week of October because we would have to sign for it. About a week after we ordered the headboard we received a call saying it was already in town and when could they deliver it. I was told by customer service that they had no way to query the manufacturer to ascertain product availability or delivery date. That seemed strange to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice headboard... We love everything about this headboard, especially the caning and detail in the frame. It seems to be of good quality and looks very nice on closer inspection. It was very well protected in shipping and arrived in perfect condition. It adds just a touch of interest to our guest room without being too ornate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I had a hard time finding a headboard that I liked and after months of looking, found this one. I was nervous about ordering furniture online, but the headboard arrived last week and it is perfect..nice details, works perfectly with my other furniture in the bedroom. My only disappointment was that it is made in China....the website lists Country of Origin: USA, but the box said made in China as did the label on the actual piece. I try to by USA made whenever possible, so was excited to find a headboard I liked made here......I will keep the headboard because I like it so much, but feel the web is misleading .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected No surprises, the headboard looked like the photos and the antiqued finish was well done. The construction is quality. the headboard attached to my bed frame with ease. I only used four screws from the copious bag of attachment parts that arrived with it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Unique I ordered this headboard about a month ago, after years of searching for just the right piece. I live in a small apartment that can't support too much bulky furniture, so the airy look of cane is absolutely perfect! The Old World Brown finish is a bit lighter than expected, but it still works with other furniture in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!! I was worried when I read the reviews that the bed looked like cherry wood, which I think of as looking reddish in color and like cheap reproductions. The bed is BEAUTIFUL and perfect and not red at all. My only complaint is that the holes don't line up with my bedframe (apparently a lot if people had this issue) and I didn't want to drill into such a beautiful piece of furniture, so my headboard kind of leans a bit. Also, they put a BIG lime green sticker on the back of the headboard that will NOT come off. I'm glad it's against the wall bc that would really make me mad if I had to stare at it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White Louis Headboard We bought the white headboard and really love it. adds the right touch for our vintage inspired master bedroom. Would recommend this product to anyone trying to achieve a vintage style room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks terrific It's not easy to find just a headboard in a cane pattern, so thank you Ballard's for carrying something affordable. I selected the off-white which blends perfectly into my bedroom decor- and it's also the perfect scale- important in a small room.
Date published: 2013-06-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This bed is the perfect addition to my guest room. I ordered the headboard in black. The black has a sheen to it that makes it pop against the white wall. The cane seems sturdy and the coloring matches the wood perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features - sturdy-exactly like photo total experience was awesome - LOVED speaking directly w/ people here in USA-on top of order - had problem with whipping cost when ordered online and they called to explain -even delivery was handled timely and by professional people- easy to assemble - sturdy - couldn't be happier !!!! love every product I have ever purchased from Ballard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very welcome addition! i am extremely pleased with the headboard. Typically I am reluctant to purchase furniture online without seeing it first. However, the headboard really does look just like the photo in the catalog. It took only a few minutes to attach the headboard to the existing bedframe which I have owned for over 20 years. Now the entire bed is more stable than it was before. The Louis headboard lends graciousness to my bedroom. Thanks Ballard!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful headboard not only did the headboard come weeks earlier than expected, it was perfect. it has excellent craftsmanship. the brown finish was very rich and looks beautiful in my guest room. i would use this headboard in any bedroom - its tasteful and traditional and could be used with any kind of bedding. my home has both antiques and reproductions, and this piece has been a very affordable addition with a much more expensive look. thank you Ballard for a classic headboard for an amazing prince!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS HEADBOARD!! This headboard is exactly what I was looking for. Wanted something French country vintage, cottage! The color is great. Beautiful finish. I got the white and it is such a nice soft antiquey white with touch of sage green....perfect. Great scale for my room which is not very big, so it does not overpower the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this product The Lewis headboard is a wonderful additon to my bedroom. The texture and detail enhance the fine quality. It's just what I was looking for to finish off my decorating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s a match I bought a bedroom set around 1983 in Seattle. Unfortunately the headboard got ruined, but I couldn’t part with the dresser and nightstands. I just had them refinished and I can’t wait to get this. I’m so excited to get it all together here in Virginia!
Date published: 2018-11-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice headboard, pretty lines, but color not true. This headboard has nice design lines, however the color and height is not accurately pictured online. The antique white is not at all as it looks in the photo. It is a very yellowed white. If your bedding is more ivory it would be fine, but if you need a whiter tone, this is not for you. Also, be sure to measure where your mattress will hit the headboard. We raised the headboard as high as the holes would allow, and when the pillows are in place only a small portion of the headboard is visible
Date published: 2018-02-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty style and black finish Pretty and would buy again, only the finish has flaked off in a couple spots behind the pillows on the cane part. The bed frame keeps it pushed against the wall and I added some 1" round felt adhesive pads to the back of it to prevent any possible scuffing or noise against the wall, which works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty headboard - - good for small spaces I purchased this headboard because I needed something smaller for my master bedroom. This fit the bill perfectly in terms of size and the design and finish is beautiful. My only complaint is that it is very lightweight and the finish is a little lighter than I thought it would be (I ordered the brown finish). Also, the headboard came with hardware for attaching it to my bedframe, which I appreciated. When I originally called customer service to inquire if hardware was included they told me no, so it was a nice surprise!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from as beautiful as the picture Well made and looks beautiful in our bedroom. I was thinking it was going to be a bit taller but the picture is true to size. It was jus in my own head! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All I expected This headboard is what I expected. I just wish it were a bit higher. Easy to assemble. This was my first buy from Ballard and based on this purchase i won't hesitate to buy other merchandise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is beautiful We are very happy with the Louis headboard . Just what I was looking for at a reasonable price and good quality. I would highly recommend to friends
Date published: 2012-07-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful design I'm delighted with the design, the color and the material of this headboard. I am less happy that whatever paint was used on it didn't dry completely before it was shipped. The smell is still quite noticeable a full month after we received it. That, however, is my only quibble. It's every bit as pretty as the photo suggests, it shipped quickly, it was simple to install and I am happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2012-06-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's really elegant! I was looking for the same design for couple of years and I couldn't find the better deal with the same quality. I would rather to see the furniture that I want to buy before ordering but in this case I trusted the picture because no Ballard Design shop was not around my location. I'm so happy with the headboard, it's so elegant and well made the only reason for 4 stars is because of the color of it, I got the old world brown and the color tends to redish brown not as dark as the picture, but I still like it, it's so cute!
Date published: 2011-10-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted at the perfect price I looked high and low for this style headboard. Most places would only sell it as a headboard/footboard set, or at an unacceptable price point. Instead I got exactly what I wanted at Ballard at the perfect price. The only down-side was neither the mounting holes or the brackets matched my standard queen bed-frame. A few holes needed to be drilled to make sure the headboard securely fit the frame.
Date published: 2011-05-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has lovely details The Louis XVI headboard that I purchased is lovely. First I was going to get the antique white but it was back ordered..I am so happy I choose to go with the brown, it is very rich looking and sets off the bedding beautifully.
Date published: 2011-03-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK but not great I love the look of this headboard but it arrived with a small manufacturers defect on the back but I never got around to sending it back. Now the cane is starting to ripple and is not taut. I don't believe this headboard will hold up to everyday use. I would only use it in a guest room.
Date published: 2016-11-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Louis Headboard The "brown" color of this item is more of a red maple color and not as brown as I had hoped. That much I could live with. I could not get the headboard attached to my bed frame because the holes for the bolts were bad and the bolts would not go in far enough to hold it. I wound up just having to lean the headboard against the wall and push the bed up against it to hold it in place. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed with the manufacturer.
