Hip & New Antiques ?

This is a perfect example of how great and antique or repo can look when upholstered in a contemporary fabric or style.

Have fun with fabrics. "Make everything your own !"

Not that you're listening,
But I would do a bench seat ( one long seat cushion ).
And make a couple of contrasting pillows.

Multiple seat cushions look 'cheapo' to me .
Multiple cushions came about
from furniture manufacturers trying to save money on fabric.
They can use much smaller cut pieces of fabric ( scraps ) to cover multiple cushions, they need a much larger piece of fabric if it is a large cushion.

( enlarge any picture for more info and a closer look )

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
