Before & After: Mid Century Settee

Our client sent us a pair of mid century love sets a while ago, that she inherited from her grandmother. We estimated that they were most likely from the 1940's or 1950's, and they needed a complete overhaul - everything needed replacing in these little babies!

She picked out a pretty lilac nubuck, and besides the reupholstery, we also powder coated the legs black (they were brown). The result is adorable!

Before & After: Vladimir Kagan Cloud Sofa

Our client had this vintage Vladimir Kagan sofa delivered to our workshop, greatly in need of a little (complete!) TLC. It's difficult to see in this photo, but the fabric was extremely worn and pulled in places. We completely reupholstered the sofa, and gave it quite a facelift!

Our client was also interested in having an ottoman made to complement the sofa - we matched the lines, shape and base to create a new piece.

Remembering Steven Shortridge

It was with such sadness that we learned of Steven Shortridge's death last week - he was a client, colleague and good friend for many years. His design aesthetic was modern and clean, and his work graced the pages of many design & shelter publications including Architectural Digest, House & Garden and Metropolitan Home.

Some of the projects we worked on with him included:

inset tufted leather headboard

home office sofa

outdoor banquette

leather headboard

built-in sofa

our friend...taken way too early.

He will be missed.
