Beautiful bedroom design by Susan LeSourd with drapes, valance, and coordinated pillows from Brick Path Studio.  Below is a detail image of the drapes and valance.  The valance features a ruffle at the top to soften the edge.

Brick Path Studio returns to the Internet

Hello!  We at Brick Path Studio have been hard at work, and admittedly haven't been posting much of our finished products to the web.  We will be striving to publish more regularly, and hope to inspire people to refresh their favorite pieces and rooms with our beautifully crafted, custom slip covers, bedding, window treatments, and upholstery.

Master Bedroom project under construction

 Recently completed chair, ottoman, and pillow slip covers for a master bedroom project still underway.
A bold print on a small chair and accent pillow can be used to great affect to bring interest to a room.

This detail of the pillow flange with corner pleats is an example of what can be done when you choose to go with tailored furnishings from the premier provider of custom fabric slipcovers, window treatments, bedding, and upholstery in the Chattanooga area.

Button Back Detail

We love to add these extra details to a slipcover. Everything from the button back placket, contrasting welt, to the scalloped edge on the short skirt. It truly makes a piece look custom.
The customer brought us a linen look fabric that worked well for the body of the slipcover. A scalloped edge at the bottom of the skirt is a detail we have done a few times before but we always love the finished product. Chocolate brown fabric was used for welt cord on the entire piece and on the buttons down the back. Buttonholes for this piece are worked into a seam making the alignment tricky but a unique look.

Antique Chair Slipcovered

This chair belongs to Jo Althaus who owns Southside Antiques here in Chattanooga. (That's a glimpse of her shop you see in the background!) She owns 6 side chairs and 2 armchairs. They are wonderful Victorian chairs and she worked the needlepointed seats years ago.

Jo felt she needed to update her look and bring some soft goods into her dining room. When she decided to slipcover the two armchairs, she came to us. We've been working neighbors for years now...she and her business partner Connie have had the antique store on the Southside long before the Southside was cool! We had already slipcovered 1 or 2 wingchairs for her... back when we were located across the river on the Northshore of downtown Chattanooga.

As you see from the pictures, the slipcover really makes the beautiful curved arms jump out visually. Also, the short skirt allows the unique stretcher to her the best of both worlds - adding some softness and a great fabric to her room while allowing the beauty of a fine antique to show.

PS: The fabric is a heavy linen/cotton and is printed in a French sacking design. It was purchased in Chattanooga at Associated Fabrics.

View of Chattanooga

I'm posting this picture to show one of the great perks that come with our working day. This is the view we had while working on some chairs in a downtown location. It was greater than a 180 degree view of downtown and the nearby mountains. Wow. Chattanooga is a beautiful city in which to live and work. There are many outdoor activities available as well as art and cultural events...all with this natural gorgeousness right in front of you!
