Sometimes a simple look is better. The Raw headboard is exactly that, even though it is not that simple to make. Small checkered pieces of leather are meticulously sewn together to form a unique and luxurious headboard. Understated, yet cool. Your bedroom will never be the same.
It is made in the finest aniline leather. Every hide has its own unique story and natural markings. The leather will change appearance over time and age with beauty. Usage, daylight and interior lighting affect the leather. Through time it will develop its own amazing patina.
Color and grain nuances are normal and can vary from hide to hide. There may also be minor scratches, wrinkles and healed scars on the leather even though the hides we order are premium selection. It is important to remember that the hide comes from livestock animals. In our world its authentic patina and we love it.
The padding consists of a special made laser cut foam that make it very comfortable and smooth at the same time
All the materials used to make The Raw headboard have one purpose – to make it look and feel cozy, homely and luxurious. The Raw headboard represents superior quality, unique craftsmanship and a touch of Danish design.
Mounting the headboard
The Raw headboard is a floating headboard, meaning that it is not attached to the mattress or the bed frame like a classic standing headboard. Instead it is attached to the wall with L-shaped screws for easy wall attachment, making sure that the headboard stays in place and close to the wall. It is then up to you to choose how high or low you would like the headboard installed. Some people like the headboard close to the mattress (small gab between headboard and mattress) and others like it a little further up on the wall. It is totally up to you, so we recommend testing it before final installment.
Simplicity, perfectionism and care of the environment are always our starting point. We work with the finest materials that will only become even more beautiful over time and last generations to come. A sense of detail and craftsmanship go hand in hand in our design- and production process. We do not cut corners or settle for compromises. We stay true to our DNA that is influenced by the principles of our Nordic design heritage.
At BY THORNAM we also make customized versions of the The Raw headboard. If you have a special request, please contact us for a quote.

We work with the finest aniline leather in the world. It is soft, chrome free and as close to nature as you can get. Every hide has its own unique story and natural markings. The leather will change appearance over time and age with beauty. Usage, daylight and interior lighting affect the leather. Through time it will develop its own amazing patina. We call it perfect imperfection.
In order to keep the leather soft and flexible and prevent it from fading or drying out, you can choose to use a leather care product. There are a wide range of different care products available worldwide. We recommend products from Guardian. If you love the leather to get a vintage look do not apply any leather maintenance product, just wipe the surface with a cloth slightly dampened with water.
All our fabrics score high on the Martindale scale (unit for quantifying the abrasion resistance of textiles). You can use fabric protection products if wish to reduce the chances of a stain and you can a use a stain/cleaner product if you should get a persistent stain. We recommend products from Guardian.
