Choosing Nailhead for Recliners HELP!
TIA for any advice!!
I am thinking of ordering two updated wingback leather recliners that have extensive nailhead trim. These will go on each side of the fireplace in my family room. The room has 2 chocolate colored skirted down fabric sofas in a shimmery rayon blend. My accent tables are slightly distressed black or black with glass, and 2 small side tables that will go next to the recliners (at least for awhile) that are black with brown/copper accents. I have light brown lamps with cream shades, the other accent colors are creams and greens.
The recliners we have now are a creamy/tannish gold (for contrast) but fabric and are defective. They are being replaced We are going a different direction & maker and decided on leather.
Now you have the long winded picture. The leather we have chosen is listed in the brown category but is light, it looks like a pale, pale green against our sofas. We have several nailhead choices but I'm inclined to choose something that defines the lines of the chair, rather than blending in where you barely see them. My issue is, the chrome/silver stand out the most, but there is no other chrome/silver in the room. The browns/brassy/coppers get lost and the black stands out, but I just can't picture it. It just doesn't seem like it would look right. Like it's too much. The only time I can recall seeing black nailhead was on a really bold leather, like yellow. (please correct me if I'm wrong)
So do you think chrome or silver nailhead would look out of place in a room filled with browns & blacks? Where the light fixtures are wrought iron? Would you use them? Would you use something safe like a version of brown with as much contrast as possible?
I've become obsessed. I was watching an episode of House of Cards, they were in the White House, there were a lot of beautiful chairs with nailhead trim all around. Most of it was silver or chrome, it seemed anyway. I had to rewind several times because I didn't hear a word that was said. I was too busy eyeballing the furniture.
Someone put me out of my misery. Here is the chair, it is not the shown in our leather choice. Note the nailhead goes all the way up the wings.
