Launched in 2008 with offices in northeast Nebraska and Chicago, Illinois, Heady Bed is a line of premium upholstered headboard panels that provide unlimited options for creating a unique, and customized headboard.
Heady Bed was founded on the idea that more should be demanded from headboards. After all, they are the centerpiece of one of the most important rooms in your home. More time is spent underneath your headboard than anywhere else. It’s one of the first things seen in the morning and the very last thing seen at night. We believe headboards should be comfortable, beautiful, and personal!
By providing a premium, customized modular solution on a broad scale, Heady Bed bridges the gap between inaccessible high-end and low-end do-it-yourself furniture. The result is a modular panel system that is lightweight for non-hassle transport, with assembly that is simple and straightforward. Heady Bed upholstered headboards provides an affordable high-end headboard with a luxurious designer look and feel.

Transcript of A Creative Headboard Story »
Katy: Heady Bed is custom upholstered headboards…. But even better.
Mom: Because there are so many possibilities.
Katy: Well it was all my mom’s idea… I can’t take any credit.
Mom: I have come from a long line of eccentric dreamers. (Katy fixing mom’s hair) I used so much spray just trying to puff it up this morning (laughing in the background).
Katy: She just got done designing her dream log cabin. She wanted all new furniture, all cool stuff… she turned out to be a great designer. I never knew. So she came to me with this idea. She hated everything else she found in headboards. I thought it was brilliant and I thought we could make something of that.
Mom: I watch a lot of design shows and I saw designers carrying big headboards up narrow attic steps and I thought that there has to be a better way.
Katy: That’s how it started.
Mom: And I would like a nice headboard for my new cabin too.
Katy: I call you creative slash quality control and operations and I’m more marketing/PR/sales.
Mom: I kind of think of it as I’m the manufacturer… the common laborer and she’s in the high tower in Chicago.
Katy: The website is super easy. So there is just four simple steps. First one is pick your panel size. We’ve got a few options for you to choose from and then you can pick if you want your bed to be long or the regular size of your bed. Ya, any kind of design if you want it to be dramatic or not. That’s it and then you can pick your fabric. We’ve learned so much about each other…
Mom: I’ve learned how creative and talented my daughter really is. She’s amazing.
Katy: Wow – I didn’t know that. I think you’re the creative one. Mom’s a perfectionist.
Mom: I am? (Laughing) Down the road I just want to sustain this and make it huge and make it successful.
Katy: I just want it to keep getting better and better. Constantly new things; better headboards. I think there’s definitely always been a need. Really, we feel like there just needed to be better in headboards.
