Hey Stud


Barry Dixon

We've all seen and become accustomed to furniture with nailheads.  They are beautiful accents to  furniture, but what I am loving now are all the clever applications I am seeing in addition to them being used in furniture.  I am looking at studs in a new way!

Phillip Jefferies created  multi textured papers using them


Barry Dixon has long been a fan of this carpet finish

Finishing the stairs in this way is not only beautiful, it is practical as well.  The weight of the studs keeps the carpet in place.

Creating interest on walls and other surfaces has peaked my interest.  You're only limited by your imagination.

The decorative studding design on the upper portion of the walls in this sitting area stopped me in my tracks.  The winding circular pattern, no doubt inspired by the lines of the table, creates such rhythm within the room.

A nook or self contained space is an ideal spot for a little studding.

I love how the designer took the design que from the Sunburst mirror .
