Did You Know?

The decorative use of nailheads on furniture is believed to have begun in 17th century France with the ornately carved wooden seating of the Louis XIII period.

 

During this time, when the most luxurious furnishings were coveted, craftsmen would use decorative nails to secure fine upholstery such as velvet, brocade, tapestries or leather.
 

Tables, made in various shapes and sizes, saw leather held in place by large decorative nails all around the sides.
