Fall Market was HOT!!

market bed 5Fall Market was HOT! And it wasn’t just the temperature.

Blush pink was all the rage, as were textured velvets and landscape patterns with metallic accents. And…. sheen, sheen and more sheen.

A new traditional is being introduced.  Nothing like Grandma’s parlor. Sophisticated and sexy.

Curved case goods were everywhere.  Both concave and convex fronts and many pieces exhibited multiple materials and textures married to produce a feast for the eyes.

As far as metals….. gold, gold, gold!

Stay tuned as we continue to share our finds with you in our weekly posts.

Tufting

Tufting is back and it’s more popular than ever. There are several different styles of tufting which make this design aesthetic very versatile.

Diamond tufting is the most commonly used and the most traditional. This signature arrangement creates a soft, romantic look, harkening back to the Victorian era. The use of velvets, silks and satin lend an air of formality, while linens and nubby fabrics foster a more casual vibe. And, there is nothing more masculine than that great diamond leather tufted Chesterfield.

Biscuit tufting is cleaner and flatter in appearance and is recognized by its square shape. This technique is often accompanied by the use of baseball stitching, which adds yet another level of dimension to this wonderful styling very often used on large cocktail ottomans.

Button tufting is somewhere in between. It provides a chic, more tailored appearance than the original diamond variety, however, the small hollows created by the buttons being pulling tightly against the fabric are the “star” of this technique. A multitude of patterns can be created. This style of tufting is equally at home in both traditional and contemporary settings. Beware of dogs and children…..the buttons can become dislodged.

Be creative. Use this wonderful design element not only on upholstery, but on casegoods and even walls. Happy tufting!

Architectural Digest

June’s Architectural Digest featured some fabulous lines in their “discoveries” section. Mr. Brown is especially new and notable. Quasi-retro and cutting edge all rolled into one. And horn is so hot right now! Kind of like the weather in New York.
