My mom’s antique chaise is a really special piece of furniture that I have so many memories with, and one of the hardest decisions we’ve made with her furniture is whether to reupholster the piece. It’s been an idea mulling around in my brain for many years, but after my mom moved into this contemporary townhouse I knew it was finally time to give the chaise a fresh new look. While I will always love the beautiful Pierre Frey “Le Grand Corail” pattern that adorned the piece for the last few decades, I’m so thrilled to show you the new green velvet upholstery I chose for this piece in collaboration with Lewis & Sheron – my favorite fabric store here in Atlanta (with a new design center and redesigned website!).

THE CHAISE AFTER
With a jewel-tone direction for the Westside townhouse project, I knew this piece would look so stunning and timeless in rich green velvet upholstery. I found the perfect fabric at Lewis & Sheron with a striated texture and a beautiful sheen. I knew a solid color would refresh this piece perfectly with its ornate silhouette, and this shade of green is a hue that’s so classic – I know we’ll never get tired of it!
To give the chaise a fun twist I chose a bright blue linen for the piping, which gives the piece so much personality! It ties the design to the blue ottoman in the room, and gives a pop of complementary color to offset the warm wood of the frame and give a contemporary edge to the look. I am so in love with how this piping modernized the look!
A huge thank you to Lewis & Sheron for this beautiful fabric. If you’re local to Atlanta, give their new design center a visit for an amazing selection of designer fabrics, trim, and custom furniture. If you’re not, check them out online to shop from afar!
Stay tuned for some beautiful new furniture additions to this room…
