Not Quite the Whole Story...But Close

Mini greetings to you all.  My fingers are covered in glue residue and gold paint that wouldn't quite wash away.  But  I couldn't wait to share part of a room story that it not quite the whole but close.   A few minor details need to be buttoned up or sewn up.  Hopefully before too long the pillows will be hemmed and a decision will be made regarding accessories.
This story begins with a desire to build a feminine high back, curved arm sofa.  I thought it would be fun to collide the femininity of lines with a menswear feel in grey suit fabric.  Of course I do love tufts and nailhead so those details had to be in the story.   
To create a little added tension I wanted to add elements of "glam" with gold vinyl.  I've been seeing gold ottomans everywhere.  Just take a look at this over the top chair and ottoman in gold.

Well here's my story.  Check back soon for the ending.
 A little animal print is always interesting.
Leather and exotic wood are unexpected.


  1. This is very nice! I like that you mixed in the print!

  2. Thanks. I'm trying to decide whether or not to put in a side chair or two.

  3. Yes yes, put the side chairs lol! I love the look of this! Everything just matches perfectly!

  4. Thank you. Glad you like it. I am working on one chair in an orange chenille with interesting trim, gold and acrylic legs. Hope it turns out well.

  5. Oh yes, add the side chair. I can't wait to see the finished look.

  6. Ok, there may be some confessions from the trash...found items to fabulous coming up. Stayed up late working on the chair...just needs a cushion.

  7. Hi from Spain: i love the detail of the fur blanket on the couch. The golden table is beautiful. The elegant color scheme chairs on the lateral will be perfect. Keep in touch

  8. Your work is amazing. Very impressive.

  9. Very nice! Love the coach and the fur and the combination of colors with the gold.
