Period home renovations

Look at this old guy. Seen better days for sure, but I’d bet he’s got some stories to tell!

I love giving furniture new life. Especially when the pieces hold special memories for our clients.

In our Kew House project, we gave new life/re love to quite a few pieces that had some history.

This old chair originally from our clients childhood home was re-polished and upholstered in a beautiful fabric and voila – a whole new life!

By the way these pictures were taken purely for me to admire the spectacular boucle fabric that we used. A fine blue thread is woven throughout as a fabric addict -makes my heart skip a beat!

And here is another chair that my client had collected to rescue.

This one not from her childhood home, but via a neighbour who had themselves rescued from an old red cross building when it was being demolished.

You’d be forgiven to see something like this as trash, but a bit of love, imagination and gorgeous fabric and….

The  Kew house project  that we completed a couple of years back and where these guys live, is a grand period home that was given a new life with an extensive renovation and the addition of a modern family room.

The front section of the house retained the period features and we felt if was fitting to furnish a lot of this area with pieces that our clients had collected over the years.

Like this cool as hell armchair! I think my clients found these in a thrift shop I loved the shape and that it was era relevant to the house.

We selected a gorgeous upholstery fabric that was also reminiscent to the deco era of the house.

I was thrilled with how they turned out. A combination of two of my loves really – gorgeous fabric and art deco shapes.
