Here are a few that are sold (red dot) but favorites nevertheless.
The pictured chairs are in the Louvre in Paris in the Napoleon Apartments. These chairs feature a custom back treatment. This upholstery design could be adapted to contemporary design and provide what looks to be a comfortable chair for multi-purposes. With a little imagination, there are lots of possibilities for styles to be adapted such as traditional, transitional, or more modern approaches. Purposes are that of any side chair such as dining chairs, guest chairs, conference chairs, and so on.
Designed and crafted in the 1950’s, this table is as beautiful, functional, and appropriate as it was at its inception. It is in a rustic ranch home in the Sonoma Wine Country. The mosaics depict different designs artistically displayed in local stones and shells from holiday . If you look carefully, you may see initials of the artist and her husband. It is absolutely one-of-kind and very special.
Here’s another find from the wonderful windows in the 6th arrondissement in Paris. This time it’s an interesting sofa design in a contemporary style. It’s possible that this is a custom furniture piece. It has lots of potential perhaps done in contrasting fabrics, a print, solid, or a subtle neutral as shown.
This beautiful fabric may have been used for Joséphine’s gowns but it would be a wonderful sheer for a window treatment. On the far right, there appears to a fabric piece that may be a tie back for a drapery or a tie for a bow on a gown.
