Design Details: Upholstered Furniture

Hello, everyone! I'm so happy to be visiting with you here at Landfair on Furniture with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It's a great place to find lots of interior design inspiration including interesting home décor ideas from accent furniture to mini pendant lighting.

Today, we're going to explore a few of the many beautiful design details that can be added to upholstered furniture. From pleating to ring pulls, tufting and nailhead trim, exquisitely worked details can bring a lovely custom look to upholstered pieces of all sorts. Please enjoy!

Thanks for letting me stop by.
