The Art of Nailhead Trim

Monogram done with nailsOver the years we've become specialists in applying decorative nails. It's not an easy task. The work is slow and exacting as each nail is hand-applied one at a time. Almost any design can be customized with nails and their placement and patterns are virtually limitless.

We get a lot a inquiries from customers that want to make a few tweaks. It may be something as simple as applying nails to a design that normally doesn't have them to something as complex as recreating an intricate geometrical pattern. In this picture we see the back of a customized parsons chair with a double row of nailhead trim surrounding a monogram. All it took for the customer to get this unique chair is a phone call to discuss exactly what she was trying to accomplish.

As I've already mentioned, the types, colors, designs, and placement of nails are almost limitless. We have dozens of pictures that are great examples, but we could fill up several blog posts trying to show them all. So instead of trying to put everything here, we've created a Nailhead Resource Guide to give you some inspiration. Of course this guide is just a starting point, but it should put some ideas in your head. As you think about what you want, remember that we are more than happy to work with you to ensure you get the end result you're hoping for.
