Trendy nail heads discussed via Calico Corner newsletter: Nail heads enhance the sculptural lines of a frame and add personality to the piece. Nail head trim does for chairs what jewelry does for an outfit — it adds a little bling but in a subtle, sophisticated way. No longer applied just to leather furniture and masculine club chairs, nail heads can complement many types of fabrics — from velvets to faux suedes, from chenilles to jacquard tapestries, from textured linens to denim, duck and heavy cotton prints. Nail heads can appear more feminine in shiny silver or more masculine in an antique brass finish. They can be used in combination with a twill tape for a distinctive look around the base of a frame. Even plain black upholstery tacks are being used in some upholstery applications for a deconstructed, casual look.
