Nailhead Trim Resource Guide
Nailhead trim is a beautiful addition to many furniture styles. It is a laborious task--each nail is applied by hand and it takes a true artisan to get everything just right. While many of our styles have nails, they can be added to just about anything we make. We encourage our customers to make custom creations, so this nailhead guide is more of a resource to get your creative juices flowing. If you want to add nails to a style that doesn't already have them or create a new pattern, feel free to call or email one of our Design Consultants for a quote.
