Lavender and Lilac


I am so excited as the antique Louis 15th settee I bought and had restored is looking beautiful.....


I decided to use a Manuel Canovas toile on the settee and studs or nailheads to trim it.  I left the original timber as I think it is perfect as it is ....


I also have done these scatter cushions in a Canovas lilac, white and black stripe just to show Tonya as she is absolutely in love with lavender, lilac and purple ..... plus they look gorgeous on the settee...


This is also a Manuel Canovas fabric from the same collection and both of these are outdoor fabrics .... these were the fabrics that were in the outdoor tent/pavilion at the Hotel Georges V in Paris.


So if I know my good friend and client .... it won't be long before she "has to have them"....
have a lovely week-end everyone ....
best wishes
M.A. the 2nd
