About the Manufacturer

Safavieh is a leading manufacturer and importer of fine rugs. Established in 1914 in the capital of Persian weaving masters, three generations of knowledge and experience are behind Safavieh's award winning collections.

In the United States since 1978, Safavieh has been a pioneer in the creation of high quality hand made rugs, a trend that revolutionized the rug business in America. Safavieh's collections range from the finest antique reproductions to the most fashion forward contemporary rugs.

A seven-time award winner of the America's Magnificent Carpets Award, Safavieh has been recognized as the world's most innovative and fashion-forward manufacturer of both hand-made and machine-made rugs. Only exhibitors at the Atlanta International Area Rug Market may submit rugs for consideration. Official winners are chosen by a panel of expert retailers and interior designers, but the "People's Choice" award is always a favorite with the crowd.

Safavieh combines a Home division within its wholesale business, supplied by it's own production of case goods and upholstered lines from around the world. The company is headquartered in Port Washington, New York. Its flagship showroom is located at 153 Madison Avenue and 32nd Street in New York City.


The Axel Upholstered Headboard is a Contemporary style product. Contemporary style bridges the gap between traditional and modern.

A Very Stormy Sky

Kimberly from Gloucester, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 500 Reviewer

The headboard I received was a dark teal, and not a pretty sky blue as shown. The fabric was very heavy and like a burlap, not smooth or sleek. The back is covered in a black open weave polyester, but the sides are well covered. The headboard is not glamourous one bit, and actually looks kind of masculine. Men will love it. Anyway, it is sturdy and a fantastic buy, so it deserves some props for that.

Taupe is GREY

Nancy from San Jose, CA– Verified Buyer

So this is a fantastic headboard, other than the fact that this "light taupe" looks like a medium toned grey (minus 1 star for that). Wish I knew this more in advance before buying it. Annoyed, but will be keeping it.

Great Purchase!

Sean from Pittsfield, MA– Verified Buyer

I ordered this headboard in the Wedgewood Blue color. The actual color is a little darker in person, but still a great blue/grey hue. The material is velvety, very luxurious and regal. Very happy with this purchase. It looks very expensive without costing a fortune. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for great quality for a great price.

Took a chance and won!

Chubby Bunny from Boutte, LA– Verified Buyer

Bought this in Arctic Gray which is a medium gray color. It looks great paired with platinum colored silk drapes and seems to coordinate nicely with all shades of gray in our newly decorated master bedroom. Seems to be constructed well and was easy for my husband to do most of the work by himself. Comfortable to lean against while reading or watching tv.

Easy to install and looks nice.

Ping from Sacramento, CA– Verified Buyer

Nice and soft fabric. Eye-easing color just as pictured. I like it in my guest bedroom. Takes one person to install it.

In love

Sarah from Blue Springs, MO– Verified Buyer

I was a little worried at first that the color would be totally different that I would hate it, and that it would be cheap quality since it was so inexpensive, but I was proven wrong! The sky blue color is a little darker blue grey than I thought but nonetheless a perfect beautiful color, and the quality is excellent.

Axel Upholstered Headboard

Jana from Bakersfield, CA– Verified Buyer

This headboard is really nice. It has the look of a high end headboard. I paired it with a white duvet coverlet and shams, with white weathered nightstands and matching dresser. Really pretty without looking overly feminine. The hardware was all there and the assembly was very easy.
