We love the quality and appearance and feel of this headboard in soft mauve to accentuate or heavy purple base. Was going to try DIY one but glad we didn't. 180 quid feels good value with the foam and stitching which will last year's. One tip - it doesn't attach directly to our side opening divan as opening the base conflicts with the cushion. But just gaffer taped legs to skirting board and velcroed top of headboard to wall and slid bed up close to it. Its stayed in place perfect.
