Both of my beds - my own, and the one in the guest bedroom - have bookcase headboards. (That's my guest bedroom above.) You don't tend to see these much anymore - I guess they're out of fashion - but they can be incredibly useful. Waterbed stores tend to have them - remember waterbeds? But you can find them a few other places, too.
Not surprisingly, a place called Headboard Store has a number of options.
And some upscale bed manufacturers sell bookcase beds. This one come from Charles P. Rogers.
And this storage headboard comes from Pomponoosuc Mills.
For something more unusual (and more expensive), there's the Thai Bed from Design Centro Italia.
It seems you can also find bookcase headboards more easily in children's beds - either simple headboards for twin beds, or more fanciful ones, such as this one from Natart Juvenile.
