With the confidence and ideas gained from our consultation, my client found just the furniture she was looking for to add comfort and zip to this room. A trestle table and parson's style chairs in a fun, leopard pattern warm up the room, giving it the updated look she hoped for. (My appologies for the photo quality....becoming more adept at taking photos is on my to do list for the near future, please bear with me in the meantime!)
Simple, french pleated panels in a paisley on a black ground, helped to frame the windows and play up the height of the ceilings. Just like adding accessories to your outfit, adding the right fabrics to a room can really create a finished look. The panels were sewn by a wonderful local seamstress, whom I worked with for the first time and are just beautiful down to the last detail. I will definitely be using her workroom again!
Now that my client has replaced her table, chairs and sideboard, she is trying to find a new home for her former pieces. If you are interested, you can see her listing on our local Madison Craigslist or contact me directly. She is selling the cherry, Thomasville Collectors table, custom table pads, chairs (two are armchairs, four side) and sideboard as a set for $1400. Everything is in like new condition.
There is lots of potential for a fresh look for this classic set, from making slipcovers or cushions for the chairs to painting the pieces or using everything separately. Check out these inspirations....
Are you a fan of the classic Windsor chair?
