Upholstered cornices and headboards can add a lot of impace or accent a room. Coordinating with bedspreads, pillows, dust ruffles and drapes can add a distinct look to your room. We fabricate custom headboards in various shapes (square, curved, cameled, shirred, tufted, boxed, etc.) and sizes. Custom cornices are built specifically for your space and design. They can be shirred, scalloped, one step, two step, bridge, pointed bridge and plain. We can add decorative trim or jumbo welt, as well. The height and depth of your custom cornices depends on room design and whether there will be drapes behind the cornice.
