Rest your back

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!
