As graduation approached, I knew I was going to move out and started looking for beds. I knew that I had to select something that I would like for awhile since I doubted I would be able to afford getting a new bed every few years. I think footboards are so confining so I also knew that I just wanted a headboard. I saw the Claudia headboard and liked it but refrained from purchasing it then because I just wanted to be sure that it was not anything close to an impulse buy. 4 months later I finally bought the headboard and have not regretted my decision! It's a gorgeous metal bed with glass doorknob finials which makes it different from the run of the mill metal bed. The glass knobs really add to the bed by reflecting light beautifully. The detail is great and the quality is what I expect from Pottery Barn.
The only thing to keep in mind is that there are additional expenses associated with the headboard than just the price of the headboard. There is the bed frame and the shipping fee ($75.00?).
