Project Sneak Peek


Isn't this finial gorgeous?
I love transforming furniture..It's a very important part of the creative process for me! I have a great set of craftspeople lined up who help turn my ideas into reality. Here is a snapshot of one of my latest project pieces for a client. It is a vintage Chippendale chair. We had it sprayed and sealed to match a turquoise necklace I happening to be wearing the day of our design meeting! I love the details of this chair, the finial, the color the, final seat fabric. I was very happy with the end result, as was my client! (which is the most important part of my job!) Be sure to check out my website in a few weeks. I am going to include a section that actually sells some of my vintage transformations and along with a small custom furniture line...eeek..I'm very excited about it..


BEFORE SHOT

Fabric on seat: Kathryn Ireland, Style: M6550
Here's another piece of the project. We had the panels for the client's credenza covered in one of my favorite wall coverings..

This wall covering is simply amazing isn't it? It comes in a number of colors and is part of the Osborne and Little vintage collection!


sorry about the blurry image..but you get the point..right?

Both are so fun, I love the chair color the most! Its amazing how, while monochromatic, the color actually makes the details pop even more. Thanks, looking forward to seeing more!

Best,
Jaime

Oh my goodness. What magic you performed on the chair. How perfectly fabulous it looks.

I have gone into my dining room a few times giving my formal chairs the eagle eye... they should be worried about now, their lives are about to change?? Well, maybe.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Way to take a risk with a bold color. It makes it fun and modern. The jewel of the room I'm sure. Cudos!

My name: Julie My design firm: SHELTER said...

Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I found the chair at a shop that sells vintage and consigned items...

The color was custom to match my oversized necklace. My painter just tweaked a few colors until it was perfect.

Yes, I design furniture and am going to offer some of it for sale through my website this Spring.

Cheers.
