Thai craftsmen particularly appreciate this wood for its ability to be finely sculpted, which makes it possible to create detailed and complex patterns.

Manufacturing process

The manufacture of our wooden beds is a real journey through time and ancestral traditions. Each piece is the result of know-how transmitted from generation to generation by the craftsmen of the tribes of the hills of northern Thailand. Here is a detailed overview of the process of creating these unique works of art.

Traditional techniques and tools

Artisans use manual sculpture techniques that have been perfected over the centuries. Armed with wood scissors, mallets and other traditional tools, they work with a precision and an delicacy incomparable. Each craftsman begins by drawing the hand -raised patterns on wood, following designs often inspired by nature and local culture.


Wood scissors, of different sizes and shapes, are then used to sculpt the patterns with care. Each blow is meticulously calculated so as not to damage the wood and to create relief patterns which capture the light and the shadow in a harmonious way. This work not only requires technical skills, but also great patience and developed artistic sensitivity.



Ancestral motifs and drawings

The patterns carved on our heads of beds are rich in symbolism and history. They often represent elements of nature such as flowers, leaves, and animals, as well as geometric figures and abstract patterns. These drawings are not chosen at random; They have a deep meaning and are often linked to local beliefs and legends.


For example, some floral patterns can symbolize the beauty and the fertility, while the animal patterns can represent protective minds or specific qualities such as strength or the wisdom. By integrating these reasons into their works, the craftsmen pay homage to their cultural heritage and perpetuate millennial traditions.

Among the most revered patterns on wooden wall panels are the representations ofBuddhist guardian angels, called "Thewada" in Thai. These figures are supposed protect homes and bring blessings of peace and of prosperity. The Thewada are often sculpted with exquisite details, reflecting their divine and benevolent nature.

Time of creation and dedication

The time required to create each headboard varies depending on the complexity of the design and the size of the room. On average, it takes several weeks to finish a headboard, at the first pencil stroke at the last finish touch. This laborious process is a testimony to the dedication and passion of craftsmen for their job.


Each headboard goes through several stages: preparation and selection of wood, drawing of patterns, sculpture, sanding, and finally, application of natural finishes to protect wood and enhance its beauty. These finishes are often based on natural oils which penetrate the wood in depth, highlighting its grains and its shades of color.

Tips and inspirations


To best integrate a headboard carved into your room, here are some practical tips and inspirations:

Focal point of the room : Place the headboard in the center of the main wall of your bedroom. Its imposing presence and its artistic details will make it the focal point of the play, immediately attracting attention and creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Associate with simple furniture : To enhance the complexity of the sculpted patterns, combine your headboard with furniture with simple and refined lines. Light wooden bedside tables or minimalist dressers will perfectly complete the aesthetics without overloading space.

Natural color palette : Opt for a natural color palette that accentuates the beauty of wood. Neutral shades like beige, broken white, and earth tones go well with teak and acacia, creating a soothing visual harmony.


Adequat lighting : Use soft and warm lighting to accentuate the details of the sculpture. Bedside lamps with fabric lampshades or light garlands can add a cozy atmosphere while highlighting the delicate patterns of the headboard.

Textiles and accessories : Complete your decoration with textiles and accessories inspired by Asian crafts. Embroidered cushions, natural fiber carpets, and silk or cotton plaids can add a touch of texture and comfort to your room.

Chic bohemian room : Combine a recycled teak wood headboard with colorful textiles and lush indoor plants to create a bohemian chic atmosphere. The floral patterns and drawings of Buddhist guardian angels will add a spiritual and artistic dimension to the whole.

Feng shui and placement of the bed: importance of the headboard

Feng shui, a Chinese ancestral art of space development, aims to harmonize surrounding energy to promote well-being and prosperity. The placement of the bed and the headboard plays a crucial role in this discipline. Here are some basic principles of Feng Shui concerning the headboard, in particular in the event that the bed is under a window, as well as general advice for the bedroom.

Natural protection between the window and the bed

Placing a bed under a window is often not recommended in Feng Shui, as it can cause energy loss and a feeling of insecurity. However, if this arrangement is inevitable, using a carved wooden headboard can provide essential natural protection. Here is why and how:

Protection and stability : A solid wood headboard, like those we offer, creates a protective barrier between the window and the bed. It offers a feeling of stability and safety, essential for restorative sleep. Wood, as a natural material, promotes a flow of positive and stable energy.

Energy insulation : Solid wood helps isolate the sleeper of air currents and energy variations caused by the window. In Feng Shui, this barrier reduces energy disturbances, allowing to keep an atmosphere of calm and rest.

Energy anchor : The patterns carved on the headboard, whether floral, animal or spiritual such as the Buddhist guardian angels (Thewada) and the Kannari, strengthen energy anchoring. They provide beneficial and protective energies, thus increasing the quality of energy in the room.


General placement of the bed and the headboard in Feng Shui


Command position : The bed must be placed in a command position, that is to say that from the bed, you must be able to see the door without being directly aligned with it. This symbolizes control over your life and provides a feeling of security.

Solid wall behind the bed : Ideally, the headboard should be backed by a solid wall, representing support and stability in life. A wall behind the headboard creates a feeling of protection and safety, essential for peaceful sleep.

Avoid acute angles : Avoid placing the bed where acute angles point directly to it, because they can create negative energy, called "sha chi". These angles can come from furniture or walls.

Symmetry and balance : Create symmetry with bedside tables on each side of the bed. This promotes balance and harmony in relationships, a key principle of Feng Shui.

Distance from doors and windows : If possible, avoid placing the bed directly under a window or aligned with a door. If the bed should be under a window, a solid headboard, as mentioned above, can reduce the negative effects.

Open space and decloteter : Make sure that the space around the bed is clear and organized. The disorder blocks the positive energy flow, while a clean and open space allows energy to circulate freely.


Integrate a wooden headboard into your bedroom by combining artisanal beauty and the principles of Feng Shui to create a harmonious and energetically balanced sleep environment. 

This unique piece offers not only protection and support, but it also enriches your living space with positive energies and a deep connection to nature and traditional crafts.
