Nailhead trim on furniture is hip and funky! Hard to believe that this detail is 400 years old. It looks modern and sexy, and is showing up in lots of new applications to create bold looks.
The use of nailhead trim dates back to the period of 1560-1643 with the rise of French Country Style during the reign of Louis XIII.
Today nailheads are paired with contemporary fabrics and bold colours for a sophisticated look.
Both upholstery and case goods are showing off their studs these days. The formal lines of the furniture can be outlined, but we are also seeing nailheads used to create bold artistic designs.
Many furniture manufacturers allow customization using nailheads. As well, nailhead trim can be added as a DIY project.Whatever your choice, get some nailhead in your home. It’s like jewelry for your furniture!
