I cannot believe that it is Saturday again! I also cannot believe that I haven't written anything since Sunday, I needed some major recuperation after last weekends kitchen work. Upholstery class was great last night, I am finally putting together something that resembles a chair. It really is amazing how quickly something can go from a wooden frame to looking like a piece of furniture.
Last night I made lots and lots of buttons, with a really cool button machine. I cuts the fabric and then makes the buttons.
Next, I cut out and marked my foam cushion.
I attached the foam to the chair and covered it with cotton, then cut my fabric and started tufting!
and voila, it is starting to look like a chair!
I was so busy working on my chair that I didn't take a ton of pictures of Chris's project, but he got a ton done as well. He started by finishing up the webbing and then covering it all with burlap. The he created a big cotton cord around the edge with burlap and cotton.
He then filled the seat with a huge layer of cotton, then foam, then cotton, and finally muslin.
I live outside of Boston with my husband, two children, and dog. For the past 8 years I have been working with clients to help them make their home dreams a reality. From helping to build homes from the ground up to helping round out already finished spaces, I listen to my clinets and let their vision guide our process. I have always been a creative person planning spaces and working to make them function better. After completing the Residential Interiors program at Boston Architectural College I learned how to combine my love for funcion and flow with my eye for color, scale, and balance. As a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, I understand project planning and budget management. My experience working with clients, contractors, and architects helps to coordinate and streamline the home building and renovation process, helping my clients to have the home they dream of with less of the stress that comes with building and decision making.
