Nail heads used to embellish furniture is nothing new. In fact, they are a classic detail in furniture design. However….If I had a nickel for every nail head I saw at High Point this Spring I would be one wealthy decorator! In fact, I would say the vast majority of chairs at this Spring market had nail heads.
I loved the way these nail heads outline the sexy curves of this raspberry velvet chair.
and punctuate this black and cream leather wing chair.
I wanted to take this silver leather chair with these sparkling chrome nail heads home with me.
I also loved this embellished teal green desk chair I spotted at C.R. Laine
As well as this turquoise chair.
My travel mate and I both fell in love with this faux alligator leather and Lucite bench.
Using nail heads as part of the fabric design was a trend I spotted several times like on this ottoman by designer Barry Dixon.
Nail heads on head boards have been trending for a while now and I continued to see plenty of them at market.
Moving beyond upholstery, designer Mary McDonald used nail heads on her wood bedside tables for Chaddock Furniture (I apologize for the blurry cell phone photo).
Even accessories have not escaped the nail head obsession. One of my favorite finds was this little gold topped white leather box completely surrounded with black nail heads.
So, the big question is…are you a nail head fan or do you think they are being over used?
