IDS West....... Here We Come! Come see us Booth 1110

Here is a sneak peak of what we are taking to IDS West. The show opens this Thursday night, Sept. 19th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
 
We are essentially building a library for the show, featuring amazing wallpaper I brought back from Paris. The upholstered goods are done au natural, ie, no foam, or synethic fibres on the inside or outside. The Belgian linen was personally sourced by myself in Brussels, as well as the Jute. Leather is Italian. Great care has been taken into the creation of these pieces. One of a kind, never to be duplicated.
 
The  above wingback chair, fondly referred to as Mrs. Critchley. We custom upholstered the 1870's frame in leather, Belgian Linen, and Jute. This lovely chair was made for a woman, great scale, proportion and balance.
 
 
Mr. Critchley,  in the studio, the re-creation begins months ago.
 
 
Mr. Critchley, final finish, leather, Belgian Linen, Jute. 
 
 
This chair has exquisite detailing, and is a joy to view from all angles.
 
 
Le Sofa, finished, in the studio.
 
 
The hands that make all the magic happen, upholsterers,  Bonnie and Arwen Schmaus.
 
 
Le Sofa stripped down, the solid oak frame was made by Copper Bros. , Toronto in the 1950's. 
 
 
Coming to the show is the magnificent Victorian pier mirror, more than just a mirror, this is art.
 
When we finally get the room built sometime Tuesday night, I promise to take photos and post the finished product.
 
For now, Im off to load up the truck, drop off Ida at doggie day care, and pick up marble for a last minute install.
 
IDS West..... Here we come!
