Fresh Ideas For Your Home - Nail Heads

Read Design

Dressing up your furniture with metal trim will nail your design plan.

Decorative brads, nails and tacks will hit the mark.

Metal trim is a classic embellishment for furniture and more. Brads, nails and tacks were used as early as the 17th century and maybe even before, in almost every country in Europe, and in the United States too. Think of them like jewelry for furniture – adding a beautiful necklace around the edges.

Metal trims work just as beautifully today as when they were first invented. They add a sense of craftsmanship and can complement almost any style of décor, from the most traditional to ultra contemporary.

Decorative brads, nails and tacks are mostly used on upholstered furniture,
but can also be applied beautifully on headboards, upholstered walls and doors,
and even as an embellishment on table tops, table fronts and table legs.

You can make a subtle design statement by using metal trim as a stripe on the edge of upholstery or you can go wild, using the trim in patterns or a patchwork design. Leather especially lends itself to metal trim, but many other fabrics can be adorned too, including velvet, tapestries and other heavy fabrics.

Metal trim comes in many shapes and sizes, with or without facets, and with matte, glossy or distressed finishes. Shapes include square, round, diamond and pyramid. Brads, nails and tacks can have a variety of metal finishes, including silver, antique gold, nickel, brass and even black. Newest of all are trims made from stone and crystal.

Adding decorative metal trim to your décor is a timeless look that’s modern even today. Nails, brads and tacks will secure your design plan beautifully.

Reupholstery & Paint

Read Design

Sometimes we have a piece of furniture that we love, but it just doesn't fit in our design anymore.  This is where paint and reupholstery changes everything! Our designers use this technique a lot because we love vintage pieces and antiques!  

Take a look at these side chairs. The striped fabric was dated and worn and the finish was in serious need of some help! The bold colors didn't fit this clients decor anymore so we found a new fabric that was light and fresh, but still fit her traditional style. We then sanded and specialty painted over the finish with a silver shimmer to give it a unique pop. What a transformation!

AFTER

Check out the dining chairs below. The finish was still in great condition so we didn't touch it, but we did remove the old fabric and updated them with a fresh design. We kept them simple for the most part, just adding that beautiful blue color, but on the end chairs we added a pop of pattern within the same color spectrum.
