Wishlist: A New Bed

We've decided we want a new bed– something super cozy and comfortable that makes sleeping feel like the superb luxury that it is. For us, a cozy bed means an upholstered bed. Wood is beautiful, but it just doesn't feel as good to read a book while propped up on a wooden headboard. Wrought iron ones are even more uncomfortable!

I started shopping it around online, and I was consistently drawn to the classic camelback style. It's not too frilly for my husband, but the lines are softer than a rectangular upholstered headboard. Since a bed is obviously a long term investment, we want one in a neutral color that can withstand my my decorator ADD.


Upholstered Camelback Beds


Sources, from top to bottom (all prices are for king size):

Colette Bed • Crate & Barrel • $1,999
Aisling Cream Queen Fabric Platform Bed • Amazon • $741.80
Lehigh Upholstered Bed • Ballard Designs • $1,461
Rochelle Nail Button Bed • Target • $709
Raleigh Upholstered Camelback Bed • Pottery Barn • $1,274
Gray Palermo Wingback Bed • Target • $599
Stewart King Bed • Macy's • 1,299

Right now we have a simple, affordable upholstered headboard from Target, but we want an actual bed with an upholstered platform. Of course we'd love to get a good deal, so I'm leaning toward the affordable ones on this list. The Amazon bed is the same as this Overstock model, which has great reviews. Most reviewers compared it to the much more expensive Colette Bed from Crate & Barrel.

So which is your favorite? I think there are some well-priced options above, as far as king size beds are concerned. I haven't decided which one I like the best, so I'd love to hear what you think!
