Nailheads make the Carmen caliente! By Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
A mark of great craftsmanship is all about attention to detail. It's easy to make a sofa and just call it a day. It's another thing to make a sofa and then make it fabulous. That's where little details make all the difference. Try some of these to punch up your next upholstery challenge.
Nailheads: These little babies offer a bit of sparkle to an otherwise basic sofa. Plus they outline a sofa nicely to show off the shape. Another good point? Nailheads will "macho" up an otherwise feminine sofa creating a nice balance between Mars and Venus.

Tufting: Looking for a Victorian sitting room kind of look? Button tufted is your go to detail. Craving something a bit more 21st century? Grid tufting is a subtle detail that looks sleek and modern. (Need a visual? Check out the Gabriel...)
