For the Want of a Nail…
According to the proverb, the Kingdom was lost. Not quite as much is at stake in upholstery, but it uses a bewildering variety of nails, many of which are visible in the finished work, and just have to be “right”. We distribute the Heico product range, which includes decorative nails in every period style.
As well as Heico nails we supply buttons, piping, webbing, furniture legs – indeed anything the craft of upholstery demands. All our products are of the highest quality, and we’re always happy to give advice on their use.
