A quick update on my current projects. After a week of working with my client on the Wave Lounge, the fabric is choosen and ordered. I sent samples from F Schumacher to her and while she was impressed, she ultimately went with a Joybird selection. I am thrilled to be able to order it for her and saved her an additional 10% off their normal sale pricing! Yea for trade accounts!!! She picked a gorgeous golden yellow and I am so excited to see it in person! Here is a preview.
I am currently sanding down the legs for a refinish and hope they will be ready by the time the fabric gets here. I expect this to be ready about a week after it gets to the upholsterer and then I can schedule delivery! I am sure you guys are as excited to see this transformation as we are! Don’t forget that I have some great and highly collectible Craft Associates/Adrian Pearsall items coming. They all need a redo and I would love to help you customize a restoration! Message me and I will make sure I pick up what you want next! The seller is working with me on that!
There is also an awesome couch in this set that I have claimed as my own. That will be the last item I get from this Home and it will be customized for my own living room! I look forward to that and may even do my own work. Stay tuned!
Another fun thing I was able to do in the last few weeks was work with a client and friend on some cushions for the Eames Fiberglass chairs. After discussing her goal of covering up the screw caps on the seats (because there was upholstery on the chairs originally but pulled off by the former owner who said they were not in repairable condition), I got my mom and dad in the mix to develop a comfy cushion that would do the job of covering the caps, be comfortable but stylish and my personal goal was to make them interactive so if you change up your decor or want another set of cushions, we can just whip them up. The prototype was born!
Of course the chairs are now SOLD and ready for delivery this week! They are going to be perfect around the dining table with all new floor glides and their fab new cushions!
Don’t ever hesitate to reach out if you love something in my inventory and want to make it work for YOU! My mom is a super talented seamstress and has her own little alterations side gig so I am in good hands! She has been overseeing my recent sewing projects as I polish up on my skills!
As for my client....,well, let’s just say she is in the middle of a super kick ass kitchen renovation that includes the most spectacular St Charles kitchen cabinets ever! I hope she will share her story with us here! It’s a big project and she dove in head first!!!! I know you guys will want to hear about it! I am going to clear out my mall space at the end of the month...what do you locals want to see next???? I will be taking out the dining set and all the holiday clearance items. Stop over this weekend and take some things home! 50% off holiday, 20% off everything else, 10% off the dining set and the Danish casework. Leave a comment of what you’d like to see on display! I have the cane and wicker rocking chairs, the Yugoslavian set may fit.....so much good stuff to show off!!!! XO Malissa
