Playing with fabrics is one of the things about my job that I love most. My latest project has offered lots of opportunity to do that. With the starting point of this client's living room being a lovely rug she recently purchased, the major work in the space involved selecting a sofa and pair of chairs in appropriate fabrics to work with the rug and provide the foundation for the rest of the design. CR Laine is a product line that is offered by a local retailer Willow Creek, and so has been my go to brand for many projects. They have a fabulous assortment of fabric options and beautifully designed, well made upholstered furniture.
We selected the Leighton Apartment sofa
and a pair of Mason chairs.
My client fell in love with the red herringbone fabric and so we chose that for the sofa, a bold and fun choice! The tweed in the bottom right of the photo will go on the chairs.
Both the sofa and chairs come with pillows (down!) and CR Laine allows the use of a companion fabric, no matter the grade, to be included in the price. The "check" in the middle below will be the sofa pillows. When these photos were taken we were still working out the rest of the room's fabrics, but I can tell you the red cotton with the embroidered leaves is part of our plan!
The furniture is on order, the room has been painted and window treatments are in progress! Come back next week and I'll share my overall plan for the room.
In the meantime have fun this week-end. We have one last cross country event tomorrow, sectionals. My oldest will close out his high school career in that race, so it will be exciting, but bittersweet. Tonight the boys dine in style at Olive Garden then will be back at our house for movies and dessert. Don't worry, there will only be 10 of them, not 100 like last week!
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
