This feature in it is because of presence of a curved headboard and footboard that is outwardly curled at each end’s top. This footboard is often found to be shorter than the headboard. History records suggest when these were used traditionally; it did have a feature imbibed in it because of which it could curl inwards as well as outwards. Those days they were known to be made of wood. The popular practice during this period was to place them in the centre of their rooms. The objective behind this was to highlight it as one of the primary pieces of furniture of that particular room. Generally, people took immense pride in showing their prized possession.
Cleaning your tufted headboard mainly depends on the material used. If you have a leather tufted headboard, you first need to determine the finish of the leather before proceeding with cleaning. If you have finished leather, you need to put a small amount of moisturizing soap on a damp cloth. Bring this to lather before rubbing on to the leather without using too much water. Wipe away the lather with a fresh damp cloth and then polish with a dry towel. Treat the leather with conditioner. If your leather is unfinished, you will need to use damp cloth or sponge to rub saddle soap onto the leather. Wipe away the lather and allow to air dry. Oil the leather with preservative to keep the quality of the leather. If you use fabric like canvas, there are a lot of spray-on cleaners available in the market. Otherwise, an option would be to use a dry cleaning agent and brush. On top of that, a vacuum will be handy to take out all dusts and cleaning residues.
