Aaaaand we're back.
New uses, new looks, in with the old and out with the new.... or something. ??
I found these antique doors at Scotts and thought they'd be perfect for solving the #1 Family Room Dilemma. It was a stroke of luck that the client's TV fit snuggly behind them.
Made New: reupholstered in Jim Thompson's Magilan in celadon; frame untouched- loved the finish! *the original fabric was cool but it smelled terrible and was falling apart so it had to go. Bye bye.
As you can see I love ottomans with feminine curves and shapely legs.
Made new: 1st was reupholstered to match client's drapery fabric. Kravet's Water Tint in Heather; 2nd is reupholstered in a stunning Jim Thompson cut velvet.
Made New: Just some shiny,new legs....
For the brass bar I was inspired by this picture and decided to make this low, brass chest into a bar area (although it's not quite styled for one yet;). We had the base custom made to fit and raised it up to counter level. I love the drama of the skinny legs and the heavy brass.
This (already beautiful) antique chaise got a fancy new outfit.
Made New: Reupholstered in a Holly Hunt/Great Plains leather; Kravet's Hidden Pearl cording; Back of chaise is upholstered in Schumacher's Taza Damask Champagne; custom pillows and bolsters; bedcover by mela & roam!
Here's to a fresh new start!
Give those ugly ottomans a chance in 2013.
