This California King custom bed is another piece that we finished in February. The headboard is lightly tufted and sits outside the matching upholstered box spring base. Both pieces are upholstered in a beautiful grey velvet by Rubelli.
The recessed base is walnut with a dark espresso stain.

We just finished this amazing piece! The vanity top is encased in mirror on all sides, including the three drawer fronts. The legs were first painted Santa Monica Blue by Benjamin Moore, and then silver leafed. It's difficult to see in the photos, but just a tiny bit of the blue peaks through on the edges and silver leaf seams.

We just finished reupholstering a [very good!] reproduction of a Louis XVI daybed. We are estimating that this piece is from the 1950's or 1960's. We reupholstered it in the classic style, using horsehair and stitching as it was done in 18th century France. The technique has not changed in 300 years, and having been classically trained, our artisans know exactly what to do.
Our client was after a natural, bohemian vibe so we used tea-stained muslin and burlap, and kept the nails & seams exposed. Il est très joli!
