A long-time accent definitive of Southwest style, nailhead embellishments are found in an array of designs, sizes and finishes. It is said that nailhead trims first appeared around 1560 as a precursor to French Country Style. Today, they are used on a variety of products, including wood, glass, leather and fabric, with finishes ranging from antique brass to shiny nickle. Whether their use is subtle or bold, nailheads are driving style throughout the home. See a sampling on the pages ahead.

Shown here in a bright orange finish, the Table Lisbon by Peninsula Home also comes in white or turquoise leathers and measures 32"H by 36"W by 24"D.

Hancock & Moore’s Rhodes Chair measures 32 1/4"H by 28 3/4"W by 31 1/2"D. Here, nailheads of various sizes form an unconventional trim that incorporates singular embellishments.
