The Lily Home Early 2013Eclectic , New York
One of a kind settee/loveseat made from antique rare European textile with horse and antique stylized writing, on vintage framed. Newly reupholstered in U.S. Covered in antique European homespun linen. Horse textile is rare and hand-created in Germany at turn of last century.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Upholstery. Vintage grain sacks are better than cotton feed sacks for upholstery, because they’re thicker and more durable. Their size makes them a challenge to work with, though — they typically aren’t wider than 20 inches. One way to get around that is by embracing their limitations. Furniture maker Sharon Staudigel says for this settee, she stitched a vintage German grain sack adjacent to antique linen and used a high-contrast black welt. The contrast between the two fabrics is appealing, and the genre appropriate.
