I am very excited as I just delivered this gorgeous French stool which I had upholstered for clients who own a dress shop and wanted them covered for their change rooms. I had previously done drapes in belgian white linen with a panel of black linen with pink, black and white trim from Designer's Guild. So I suggested we go with this fabulous black and white stripe silk also from Designer's Guild and then have contrasting pink piping! Another client of mine is also using this black and white stripe and I will be putting her beautiful Parisian style apartment on the blog as soon as we are finished.
We are going to do French mirrors above each stool in both the change rooms.
Then I envisaged how stunning this beautiful Craig Waddell painting would look above the stools or anywhere for that matter! Exquisite!
Then another client and friend of mine had this delicate three piece antique Louis 16th style suite with fluted legs and ribbon detailing which we are incorporating in our designs for her formal drawing room.
We took it all down to the upholsterers on Friday so it is very exciting .... I love being in upholsterers workshops as it is so exhilarating to see old pieces transformed into works of art ....
The three pieces are going in with Dee's stunning Italian tufted settee which we are importing all the way from New Orleans from my friend Karina of www.karinagentinetta.1stdibs.com This is just one of many of her exquisite pieces ....
So the three piece Louis suite will be done in Carolyn Quartermaine's French script fabric
and Karina's sofa is done in a fabulous white muslin which we will put bolsters and other cushions on to bring it all together! Dee is so excited as am I!!!!
So this week-end "take a seat", relax, read a book, sip a cup of tea and enjoy yourself! Particularly if you are sitting on one of these beauties!
best wishes always
