I’m Lovin’ It

Designing custom furniture is both thrilling and scary- thrilling because you can create something totally custom for a space and scary because it’s your responsibility for it to come out exactly perfect.  Many sleepless nights have been spend pondering dimensions, angles and heights. I designed a custom settee for a client for her dining area (to be paired with a large oval Saarinen tulip table-swoon) covered in the AMAZING mocha colorway of Schumacher’s chiang mai dragon.  I wanted it to be modern but traditional and curve in the front to mimic the curve of the table.  Nail heads were a must because, well, I am obsessed with nail heads and the detail they add.  So finally yesterday it arrived and it’s perfect!!! Some quick Blackberry pics….

  1. Um, can I trade? That is the right way to have a Chiang Mai dragon couch! Anyone need a blue Chiang Mai dragon couch:)

  2. I am drooling- this is such a fabulous piece! I have a similar vision for our future dining area- I love the idea of a comfortable settee on one side of a round table in a dining room- so lovely- great job!

  3. Love it! Love the shape, the nailhead and that fabric is fantastic! Nice work…you r so talented! How do you get started designing custome pieces?

  4. oh dear heavens! that is one good looking piece of furniture! ive always dreamed about creating custom furniture, so this is such an inspiration!

  5. Seriously genius! I’ve been a little on the fence about that colorway of Chiang Mai but seeing it used here makes me think it is perfection.

    I can’t wait to see the finished space!

  6. holy hellcats its gorgoues. Great blending of modern and traditional. That colorwave is my fave! (perhaps bc we see it less than the blue and the white?) And the nailhead really add the finishing touch.

    Great job, and I do hope we get to see finished pics

  7. Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! I would LOVE to see more of your work on the blog! Everything you do seems so fantastical! It will be great inspiration.
