Headboard Design

In 2012, prestigious London bedmakers ‘Savoir Beds’ held an international Design Grand Prix inviting students worldwide to enter designs for a bespoke headboard under the design theme ‘organic’.  Inspired by the undulating Somerset lavender fields my multi-sensory design was to be constructed of wood, filled with lambswool and fragrant lavender heads and upholstered in naturally dyed, organic cotton.  It was designed to promote a fitful night’s sleep. The finalists designs were hand built by local craftsmen at the Savoir Beds workshop in Wales and displayed in their London’s store before being presented to the winners. My lavender scented headboard takes pride of place in my own restful bedroom.
