There are a number of built in backrests in my future. One is a kitchen banquette flanked by tall cabinets, and I like the idea of giving the backrest some shape--a straight back feels a bit linear with the built ins. I am loving this shape, borrowed, I suppose, from upholstered headboards, but somehow all the better for its grander width.
Especially that first one, with the slightly irregular, definitely not perfect, curve and almost-wonky nailhead trim.
Also, strike me down, I have no sources. When I grab reference for a project (as opposed to specifically for the blog), I am much lazier about tracking where it came from. If you've spotted these before and can fill me in, please do!
