With heightened headboards and epic silhouettes, these are not your basic boho bed frames

My love of rattan is nothing new, but when I first caught sight of this rattan bed from Edloe Finch, it inspired a Google search of epic proportions. Call me influenced, but I suddenly became obsessed with the idea of an elevated natural rattan or wicker headboard basically working with any aesthetic (wood is a neutral, no?), and the obsession hasn't slowed (which probably means I just need to buy one, right?). You might expect to see wicker furniture on a Palm Beach patio or by the pool at a tropical resort—of which my apartment is neither—but this bed was bringing d-r-a-m-a with the super-high headboard, wraparound lattice, and rounded feet. Because I can't let a good obsession slide, I've decided to share some of my favorite rattan headboards and bed frames for you here, dear Clever readers, so you too can discover the daydream of adding rattan in your room.

Yara Rattan Bed

The search that started it all. Available in a queen-size or king-size option, this frame makes great use of the flexibility of rattan, which is a member of the palm family. The diamond-shaped detailing on the footboard and headboard are also standout details that'll make you want to forget your upholstered or classic wood platform bed frames for good.

Pari Curved Rattan Bed

From the dainty, fiber-wrapped legs to the headboard that rivals the most stately canopy bed out there, this model from Anthropologie is a winner. In profile, it's got a sleigh-shaped silhouette, so it's serving you looks from every angle.

Ria Rattan Bed

This retro, low-profile option from Urban Outfitters has a ’70s groove to it. Each of the rattan slats is stacked and wrapped into a rounded shape to achieve the striking look–box spring not required. And if you really love the look of the Ria bed, you can go all out with the entire collection, including a bookshelf, nightstand and room divider. Just add a mattress and a duvet and you've got yourself a bedroom!

Maya Scalloped Rattan Twin Headboard

Scallopy sweetness abounds with this twin-size headboard. Perfect for a guest room or a kids’ room, or anywhere you might need a little seashell decor pick-me-up.

Maya Bed

Sourced directly from Indonesia, the Maya Bed is a fully regal option enveloped by detailed caning (fun fact: Cane and rattan are derived from the same plant) that almost makes it feel like upholstery. The Maya is also available in black if you're looking for a darker option for your home decor.

Circle Cane Bed Frame

The interlocking circles that form the headboard of this custom-made bed from Dyphor New York add both volume and visual interest. Paired with a hardwood frame with slats for easy mattress installation, it's got form and function covered.

Arya Rattan Daybed

Picture yourself in a sunny living room corner, curled up on this leafy. elegant daybed. Not too shabby, right? Made to order, it can also be customized with the cushion of your choice (sold separately) to deck out your soon-to-be new favorite spot.
