One look and you can tell it’s well made. The leather is soft on the eyes and skin. It was easy to install and arrived very quickly.
I work as an interior designer and have been looking for a full grain leather headboard for a while. After scouring for weeks, The Citizenry was recommended by a friend for its mission and quality pieces. This headboard is lightweight and soft as can be. We ended up purchasing several other items from The Citizenry to complete our master bedroom, and I’m confident we will continue to be loyal customers as we work on the rest of the house.
The overall quality, look, and size were as expected. It looks great! The only thing I don’t love are the plastic anchors it came with (these are typically ineffective.) I replaced with my own metal anchors and it now hangs wonderfully! Shipping was quick which is rare with bigger names in home furnishings right now.
After being bombarded by The Citizenry ads, I finally decided to give them a try. I hope they do better with other products, because as a showcase for the company, this was really poor. Over $1,000 for a King size and was expecting quality leather but my immediate reaction upon receipt was that it looked like something I might be able to find for $79 at Walmart. If you want leather that will develop patina over time, I don’t think this product will do that. And the cushion was 2” thin and floppy with no hard backing. Honestly, I don’t know how I didn’t give full credit to the reviews that said basically the same thing. I returned it almost immediately but wasn’t refunded until I contacted customer service about a month later. I have given a star for the two positives: fast delivery, responsive customer service. But overall I’m now very wary of this store.
Brian, Thank you for your note, although we’re sorry to hear that this was your experience all around. We understand your disappointment — you expected one thing, and you received another. We chose this particular leather because of its buttery softness, and the design is such so that it’s an added layer of softness on any bed. But, still, we missed the mark with you and for that we’re truly sorry. We checked with our Client Experience Team and are happy to hear you’ve found a resolution. But we’d love to go a step further and gain another chance to prove our commitment to quality and craftsmanship to you, so we’re sending a small gift to your inbox. Thank you again for your feedback. It means the world to us as we continue to grow. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Poorly designed. I ordered the king size and the center bowed down and out from the weight. There should have been a center support strap instead of the two on each side. I wanted to love it but I guess no one tried it out lol
Jessica, Thank you for your note and honesty - it’s incredibly helpful to us as we continue to grow. We’ve passed along your note to our Head of Design — we want to ensure the construction of our headboard matches the aesthetics, so we are going to triple check this latest batch. It is rare that a product in our collection gets past our strict quality standards and wear tests, so we appreciate you pointing this one out. Still, we understand that the present headboard did not meet your expectations, and are happy to coordinate a return (complimentary, on us). Thank you again for your feedback. We hope we get another chance to prove our commitment to quality to you down the road. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Was so disappointed when I pulled the headboard out to find it was not leather all the way around, the back is just plain tan fabric. Also didn’t enjoy that the straps were removable and not embroidered on like it looks like in the picture. For a “luxury” price point of SEVEN hundred dollars the quality given should have been a full leather headboard. Felt like it’s priced at a luxury high quality price but IN reality I wouldn’t pay over $200 for it.
Andrea, We appreciate your detailed and honest feedback. Our Design Team added the fabric to the back for durability and kept straps separate for flexibility. Your notes are so helpful, and we will make sure these nuances are called out more clearly on the site. In terms of the price, for this piece - it comes down to the quality of the leather sourced from Portugal’s famed “land of leather” with no blemishes and the cost to pay fair wages to the craftsmen. Still, we 100% understand that the end result did not align to your expectations and are happy to facilitate a complimentary return. Thank you again for the note. Your insight helps us improve, and we hope we get another chance to prove our artisan partners’ craftsmanship and quality to you in the future. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
