Build A Better Bed, Pt 3
Since I’ve decided to commit to building the bed of my dreams, this requires an equally dreamy headboard, right? I knew I wanted an upholstered lightly-tufted look and couldn’t seem to find one anywhere with all the right curves…
I liked the curves of this headboard…
with the tufted touch of this one…plus I wanted a nailhead trim approximately 2.5 inches from the edge…oh, and I’d like that in a soft creamy velvet! Is anyone having visions of the scene in “When Harry Met Sally” where Sally is ordering at the restaurant?
A custom headboard seemed to be the solution for what I want and Marroquin Custom Upholstery in Dallas is THE place for quality custom-made furniture! Jesus Marroquin, the owner, has 40 years experience in exclusive upholstery and old world craftsmanship. His attention to detail is beyond compare, as he personally inspects each piece before it moves out the door.
When I brought in my inspiration photos for my headboard, Ivan, Jesus’ son, gave me the grand tour of their large production facility. This operation is packed with some of the finest craftsmen around. Each custom-made frame is built in-house to ensure a quality foundation.
They hand-turn all of the feet and legs…
and standard construction features old world 8-way hand-tied springs individually placed to provide the highest level of quality and durability.
You don’t find this type of dedication to quality of detail anywhere else!
I observed Jesus’ brother studying the fabric design and carefully laying it over each piece to make sure that the pattern is cut and matched perfectly. Here’s an example of the perfection in the end.
Amazing, right? I’m so excited to work with them to make my headboard! Ivan listened carefully to the details of what I had in mind and began to sketch and take notes…
I’m confident that he knows exactly what I want and will make sure that every detail is considered during the construction process. He’s even promised to take pictures during the stages of construction so that I can watch it being built and share with you!

They will assist in getting the information needed to put together the headboard, chair, couch, etc. that will last a lifetime!
