Roses, Roses, Roses!

Monday, August 30, 2010

Roses galore!  We found the most spectacular French Provincial tall chest that we have ever seen!  I don't think I have ever seen such a narrow dresser that is so tall.  We have added the roses, but all the other carvings are original.  Soooo Pretty!
Just when we thought we had found the most amazing piece with the dresser above, we found these fabulous pieces! (there is a matched set, we only have one done). Two gorgeous French Provincial Bombay style armoire's.  They were painted yellow and pink, we of course changed them to creamy white and added scrumptious rose appliques.  The date inside is 1979. 
If I had a place to put them in my home I surely would!

A Newly Upholstered Beauty!

Saturday, August 21, 2010

We have just finished our latest slipper chair and are thrilled with the results!  It was fun finding the fabrics and matching them all!

We used beautiful pink rose chintz to start with, then decided to use a gorgeous green plaid chintz for the delicious ruching for the top of the heart back and the bottom of the seat, a beautiful candy pink and cream stripe is used for the cording, arms and the sweet nickle sized buttons used on the tufting on the front of the sweetheart back.  The adorable flouncy two layered skirt is done in pink and cream stripe with an underskirt of green plaid chintz........oh! delish!

We have just finished a wonderful Bergere also, so elegant!  The fabric used is classic Ralph Lauren, topped off with cream linen with stitched dots and dreamy raspberry striped chintz piping.  Luscious!

Ooh La La!!  So Pretty and French!
If you would like to see more details, you can find them on our Upholstered Furniture page.
