Not worth the money

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.

The Citizenry

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

So glad I pulled the trigger on this beautiful headboard! I was debating buying a new bed, but this extended the life of my existing bed frame. It's beautiful, comfortable, and installation was easy.

Too Delicate, not practical

I like the idea of this headboard and the all natural look., I have been looking for a long time for a headboard but many are too chunky and big. However, if I had know how delicate it would be, I would have passed and for the price I’m not satisfied with it. I got out of the shower and laid down on my bed for awhile. When I got up I saw a big dark spot on the headboard where my head was. It is now permanently discolored blotch about the size of my head. The Citizenry cust service was nice and gave me some ideas from the artisan like dry it fully which it dried months ago and did not go back to the original color. They also suggested getting it professionally cleaned. I’m just not satisfied with a product like this that I have to be so careful with. For a headboard, you are supposed to have contact with it often especially if I could be going to sleep with wet hair and who knows in my sleep if I’d touch it. I thought about getting the whole thing wet so that the whole thing would be the new dark color. Beware of getting this product wet! I told the customer service that I think that they should put a big caveat on the web page. At least then, I could have put a towel there or not laid down but again that makes it too fragile for practical use. I don’t think I should have to haul this somewhere to get it professionally cleaned. I might just take it down because of the whole negative experience.

Hi Kali, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with our Hanging Leather Headboard. These beauties are handcrafted by experts who put thought and detail into every piece. Although leather has some natural water resistance, it’s also a permeable material that will absorb water. We definitely want to be sure you have a superior experience, so our client experience team has reached out to you directly to chat more. Thanks so much for making The Citizenry a part of your home. Best, - The Citizenry Team

We're in love with this headboard. We've been hemming and hawing forever about getting either a headboard to attach to our existing frame, which is sort of a pain to figure out re compatibility, or whether to replace it all with a new bed. We hadn't even thought of a floating headboard as an option until browsing The Citizenry, but we're so glad we stumbled across this. The leather is high-quality and it fits perfectly in our loft-style bedroom. 100% recommended!

Stunning Headboard!

Waited for this piece to come back in stock and was not disappointed! The headboard is GORGEOUS! Exactly as it appears in the images on-site. Super easy to install and the buttery leather is beautifully crafted. Shipping was super fast and it came well-packaged. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. It makes the entire room feel so warm.
