Nailheads are everywhere. Traditionally, a leather club chair accented with decorative nailheads is what comes to mind. The pieces we have in the design studio are contemporary and traditional; the nailhead knows no boundaries when it comes to adding a touch of sophistication to any piece.
This column is wallpapered in anaglypta, painted, and glazed. “The clerk” added hundreds of nailheads to achieve the look of a hand-tooled leather column. In DIY projects, nailheads can be used to cover mistakes and staples, as well as offering a decorative detail.
