If you haven’t heard yet, Chrissy Teigen is not only pregnant with a baby boy but on mandatory, two-week bed rest. Like any good queen of social media, she has been posting through it, sharing photos of her setup. One detail got us thinking: the split headboard. Teigen, who is currently living in a rental house, presumably opted for function with an adjustable design better suited for all-day lounging.

Movable bed frames are the perfect work-from-home setup for those of us in tight quarters—simply bring the headboard upright during the day for emails and Zoom calls, then lower it back down to convert the space for bedtime. Not only is the change better for your posture (working horizontally can lead to various health concerns), but it allows you to put one of the surfaces already taking up the most space (i.e., your mattress) to good use.

While adjustable headboards aren’t typically known for their aesthetic benefits, we managed to find a few chic options on the market. Tuft and Needle’s frame lets you modify the angle with the push of a button and has endless positions based on your preferences (you can elevate your legs, for instance), while Copeland Furniture’s split-headboard design is crafted of solid walnut. For those looking for the ultimate setup, the Tuny Bed not only offers a height-adjustable headboard but under-bed storage as well for all the supplies you don’t want to see after hours. A win-win.
