Nailheads on furniture is nothing new. Actually it is quite an old style technique from the 1500’s. So when your teen wants to attach decorative brass nails to their furniture because “nailheads are hot!”, just smile and watch history repeat itself.
It was during the Renaissance period that brass nails were used to attach fabric or leather to a wood frame, outlining the design. Now it is often applied to arms and backs of upholstered pieces.
Furniture with nailheads applied easily transitions from teen room to guest room after your teen heads to college so it is a win-win situation…..teens get a “hot” item in their room and you get a classic design down the road.
Teen room furniture should reflect their personality, who they are or who they want to become. Hmmm….just maybe you have a Renaissance teen in the house!
