My number one source of inspiration on creative use of nail heads is Shine Home. The furniture line is amazing and creative.
This photo has another take on nail heads - notice the turquoise heads on red fabric. This is the home of Designer and Showroom owner Dan Marty, featured in Western Interiors & Design Magazine (no longer in publication)
In the next three photos, the nail heads aren't necessarily applied in a unique way. However, I like the use of nail heads to accentuate an interesting shape or line in furniture.
From Global Views poof collection.
The Quatrefoil Headboard by Ballard Designs.Scalamandre Fabrics. I like the combination of nail head over a tape trim.
And finally - nail heads (and fabric) don't have to be limited to chairs and beds, but go beautifully on case goods, too. Designer Tobi Fairly brought in side tables with great nail head accent in this room. The room was featured in House Beautiful magazine and tables are by Jan Showers.
Stay tuned for my incorporation of this nail head inspiration into a few projects - coming soon!
