Lamps do a lot more for a room than simply provide a light source. Light is important, but so is color and style! A well-placed lamp gives a room a splash of color, a functional sculpture, or an interesting accent piece.
Nail head trim dates back to the advent of French Country Style in the 16th century. Typically seen on leather upholstered furniture, nail head trim imparts a look of finished sophistication and style. Nail heads come in a variety of shapes and finishes for a custom look that’s traditional and modern at the same time. Whether their use is decorative or strictly functional, nail heads are like subtle jewelry for your home.
Why limit such a fantastic look to furniture? Nail head trim makes a wonderful accent for other pieces in the home. Inspired by fabulous designer Miles Redd, I’ve used nail heads in unexpected places with beautiful results.
Try experimenting with different shapes and finishes of nail heads as well as various fabrics, colors, and textures. Nail head trim isn’t only for leather furniture, or even just furniture for that matter.
Some of the best ideas in interior design are things that catch people off guard and challenge their ideas of the way things are “supposed to” look. One surprising design trick I really love is mixing fabrics on a sofa. It’s not something you typically see, but it adds true visual interest and contrast.
Perhaps the ideal way to find your perfect sofa is to have it custom-upholstered. You start with the style of sofa you prefer and use it as your blank canvas. What do you imagine for this sofa?
Another detail I love: a mattress cushion on a sofa!
