Rethinking Old Soft Furnishings

Hi everyone, happy Thursday! It’s kinda gloomy out there today, so we thought we’d show off some of our cheerful and fun re-upholstered pieces.

All of the soft furnishings that we have in the shop are vintage pieces that have been completely re-done. We love the style and quality craftsmanship that can be found in older soft furnishings.

Vintage footstools re-done in bright geometric Kravet fabrics.

Treasure hunting is one of our most favourite things to do, and we seek out old soft furnishings with good bones that can be given a second life! With some creativity, and a lot of skill from our upholsterer, we create these beautiful and unique pieces. The pieces have all new innards and are covered with new fabric. This ensures that they will look and feel like new while maintaining their original character and sturdy structure.

Rustic chic- we love this bench with its new burlap-covered seat.

 

Come by and have a seat in some of our soft furnishings, we’d love to see you soon!!

SKIP INTO SPRING!

We’ve been quite excited with the approach of Spring just around the corner and with this in mind we had fun choosing fabrics for our ongoing efforts to upcycle fabulous finds like these two arm chairs. Inspired by Spring’s new “it” colour, nautical blue, we chose this fun floral by Thom Felicia for Kravet. Both chairs have been completely overhauled and reupholstered with a cushy down wrap to sink into. We had to set it off just right with this zingy linen throw!
Soft faded greens were just the colour to touch on the Spring theme for this chair. Set off with our new vintage Indian sari quilts, it is just the thing to curl up with.

Stay tuned for the sofa and a second armchair that’s in the works right now with our upholsterer – all fabrics by Thom Felecia for Kravet.

Vintage Indian saris recycled into soft quilts that are both reversible and one-of-a-kind. Priced at $180.oo each.

SINK INTO FALL


Who wouldn’t want to curl up in either one of these cozy chairs this Fall? Each upholstered chair has been upcycled with all brand new springs, bindings and fabric. We went far a field to find this unusual asian-esque inspired floral, both chairs are in 100% linen that we found at Designer Fabrics in Toronto this past winter. The floral chair cushion has been filled generously in a down blend for that deep comfy feeling when you sit down and the natural linen chair has all new springs that will give you that little lift when you get back up for that second cup of tea. Both on our floor now for your seating pleasure.
