Room Reveal

Remember this post where my clients and I were trying to imagine what the room would look like with the new furniture and if we should get both chairs recovered?

Well all the furniture has been delivered today and I am happy to report my clients are over the moon with their space.

New and recovered “old” furniture in place

They have downsized from the family home to a brand new three bedroom apartment. The main room has two living areas – one formal around a fireplace – and one casual. It was the casual area we have been working on as the clients purchased the formal area furniture that was placed in the apartment for display purposes.

So the furniture and look of the formal area set the tone for the rest of the room. The clients loved their old lounge chairs and after looking at new chairs decided to get their favourites recovered, again. Today they showed me photos of the same chairs over the past 30 years with different covers. It reminded me of my own lounge suite.

Those green chairs are now the stripey ones above

We had the ottoman custom made. It had to serve three purposes.

Custom made ottoman

  1. – a coffee table (we need to add a tray to provide a sturdy surface and protection)
  2. – extra seating for the grandkids
  3. – a footstool

So careful consideration was given to it’s height so it could be used for all three purposes. Not at the same time, of course!

Now we just need to add cushions and the room is complete.
