Their resource guide is a new design tool that explains different styles of furniture. You can browse through each category to research a piece of furniture you might already own or even use the site to learn about different styles and periods.
My assignment: write a feature about a statement chair in my home. I knew right away which chair I would write about---these from Hotel Liquidators in New Haven, Connecticut.
I bought them long before I had this blog which explains why I don't have "before" pictures, but trust me they were not pretty. The wood was a mustard color and the fabric was a nubby tweed, but I loved the shape and size. After painting the frame a soft taupe topped with a walnut glaze I had them reupholstered in a gorgeous silk stripe. The cost of the fabric was a splurge but it really made the chairs and now, years later I'm happy I sprung for it.
After using their guide I learned my chairs are a reproduction of French armchairs. (Who knew? I just liked the shape and size.)
I'll be looking for more pieces to furnish our house and the resource guide is a great tool to inspire, aid and educate home decor enthusiasts when purchasing and reupholstering the perfect statement chair.
