Pillow Details

I had to show the detail of the swirling rosette on the origami pillow. The written description was just not working! Also, I wanted to say that the white slipcovers on the wing chairs are a cottonAdd Image duck and are very washable! Just pop them in the old Maytag and pop them back on the chairs if you get a spill! We pre-washed this fabric prior to making the slipcovers. It make for great function...but still has a fabulous look.

Latest in our Showroom/Outlet

We have the first wave of merchandise installed at our showroom/outlet at the Galleries at Southside in downtown Chattanooga. Here is a quick snap of what some of it looks like. The going colors are deep ORANGE, bright white, and rough natural linens. We've thrown in a bit of spice with a deep aqua color called "Rain" as well as some muted greens. The small pillows you see in the white slipcovered wing chairs are part of our "origami series". There is a highly dimensional, swirling rose design with some incredible mitered corner work surrounding it. I'll be posting more pix of the origami babies soon!

Pillow and Cushion Details!

Here's some more details from the job I've been posting about lately.

The kitchen chair cushions are covered in a classic Cowtan and Tout check in the dark brown color the decorator repeated throughout the kitchen, dining room and den. We created a paper pattern of the chair seat and had a high-quality/high-density foam cut to match the shape before covering them with zippered covers with ties. This foam will give good support for years to come and not go flat & lose their spring after a few months of use. When it comes to foam quality, you really do get what you pay for! A while back, when the price of petroleum based products soared, foam prices went right along. But it is always worth investing in a quality cushion insert.

The pillows for the living room sofa were divine. We especially love the flanged, boxed lumbar pillow in the coral stripe you see in the foreground. Lori has a secret "magic trick" to stitch those babies!
