The textile we’ve used on Larsson’s headboard, Chloe Trellis, is made from 100% Belgian linen. Stonewashed for softness, with a slubby texture (the little bumps and lines characteristic of linen), and in a grey-toned neutral, it’s the ideal complement to Larsson’s distressed colour. If you’d like a change later down the line, the panel can be removed and reupholstered.
The bed base
Larsson’s sides sit snugly underneath the mattress to conceal the timber slats beneath and so it asks for a little less room. It also means you’re not as likely to bump your shins when walking around it in the dark.
Beech is used to make the slats on each of our beds because it’s flexible and reliable. They’re sprung, which means they curve upwards to provide a little extra bounce underneath the mattress. They’re held in place with discreet, cream-coloured clips. Beds larger than a single have an extra support in the centre too
Larsson is a piece that has British and Swedish influences. The proportions are slim and delicate, like so many Gustavian-style pieces of furniture are and what makes it work so well in bedrooms. The carved details – like spruce cone finials and wildflower motifs – only add to its prettiness.
