Adding nail head trim to existing sofa?

addlepatedMay 19, 2011

I found a loveseat that I like - the Thomasville Dolce Vita - but my husband really wants nail head trim. Is it insanity to think that we can add the trim to a brand new sofa ourselves?

Most likely this is a cut & sewn cover from China or Mexico, so its sold only as shown without a nail trim option. Keep looking and you should be able to find a manufacturer with a similar sofa with nail trim or at least as an option.

Applying nails is a very skilled operation, not for amateurs, you take a high risk permanently damaging the leather.

Actually we don't want leather - we just want upholstery. Our cats would make short work of a leather sofa! We're having a hard time finding the sweet spot of the right loveseat dimensions that have all the features we're looking for, so I figure if we just add the nail head trim ourselves, that's one less thing to eliminate for,
