Favorite upholstery accent piece?

A fun ottoman! This is a great way to get a leather, velvet or print into the mix without the commitment of getting a whole sofa or chair done in a specific fabric. It also helps to add some different textures or colors to a neutral setting.

Favorite upholstered style sofa? 

I love a sofa with a bench cushion. I think a slipcovered version looks modern but also relaxing at the same time.

Splurge upholstery piece?

Lee Industries outdoor furniture!

Upholstered furniture tip?

If you want a more tailored look as opposed to a slipcover, Crypton fabrics are a great way to go! Easy to spot clean and much softer than you would expect.

Favorite upholstery accent piece?

My favorite upholstery accent piece is a pair of accent chairs. Accent (or “fireside”) chairs are a great way to introduce another fabric and texture to a room. Often they are wood framed which allows for a lot of options with wood finishes. Extra seating, extra texture, extra color!

Favorite upholstered style sofa?

My favorite upholstered style sofa is a tightly tailored, slipcovered one with topstitching instead of a welt and a short skirt. I love to see a little bit of the sofa legs. A bench cushion and a narrow track arm give a clean, modern look.

Splurge upholstery piece?

A splurge upholstery piece would be a pair of club chairs upholstered in beautiful mohair.

Upholstered furniture tip?

Swivel chairs are a great option when a room has more than one focal point or view.

Favorite upholstery accent piece?

Favorite accent upholstery piece—I can’t choose just one—I love a pair of comfortable club chairs. They are the perfect place to snuggle up and read a book or have an intimate conversation with a friend.

Favorite upholstered style sofa?

A classic English sofa with a rolled arm in a luxurious fabric with a bench cushion and spring down fill. A favorite add-on would be a set of slipcovers. I love to put my white slipcovers on in the spring and summer—it just makes everything feel fresh.

Splurge upholstery piece?

The most useful pieces you can have in your home are fully upholstered dining chairs.  If you invest in 6-8 beautiful chairs, they can be used in other rooms for additional seating and make an evening around the dining table so inviting.

Upholstered furniture tip?

Accessories are truly the ornaments and jewelry in the home. Pillows, throws, lighting, mirrors, artwork, stacks of books and curated treasures show your personality and give your rooms a collected and balanced look.
