We hope you never tire of another installment of Before and After – that’s why we’re here! Satisfy your urge to see a piece of furniture, like a lowly caterpillar beautifully and miraculously and physically change into a stunning and vibrant monarch butterfly. Witness the revelations…!
Above is one that we all fell in love with. It’s adorable size (an overall height of about 2 1/2 to 3 feet) combined with its inherent intention for our young people of the world – we were smitten. And it just got better! The family (parents are professionals in design) chose a sweet and timeless canvas print from Hable Construction. (Pattern is “checker” in color cherry.) See it – love it!
We had a fun time with this next one – another antique from way back when, Art Deco or just after. The client chose a fabric that resembled the original, a tightly woven chenille that had a slight raised wave allover – think brainy coral, or brains!
You all got a peek of this sofa in the previous post. A hip fun client of ours snatched up a salvaged sofa that Amanda picked; the client chose a killer fan print to cover. What a great fabric pick: neutral while having graphic visual interest. Seems this fabric could work with any color you pleased – very versatile!
This next one was a perfectly lovely piece – a new construction that you may pick up from a nice manufacturer that comes slipcovered. Nothing wrong with it – but the client just needed more pizzazz.
Another client project was “French” inspired. The frame was oak-ey, the fabric an iridescent ‘peacock’ type hue. Refinished in lacquer black, with diamond embossed leather and gold nail head trim. What a metamorphosis!
Hey folks – spring is nigh. Let your butterflies fly, your phoenix rise, your babies be born! We would be happy to be your agents of marvelous change. Call us! See you soon!
