Remember when your parents told you to not play with your food?
I like to rebel a bit at times. When it comes to finding durable fabrics for clients, I don’t mess around. As you can see from this photo, this is how we spent one morning this week. Ketchup, soy sauce, and a smashed blueberry - nothing can get in our way of providing clients stylish products that are functional and durable.
Really how durable can fabric be? How easy is it to wipe clean?
With kids, dogs or just normal day-to-day living, things happen.
I always want to ensure that the most enticing fabrics still make sense in the spaces in which they’re being used. I have found that taking a little bit of extra time to get to know the fabrics - and how they wear - is key. Then I can feel confident in what I incorporate into projects.
This fabric is for breakfast room chairs for a stylish young couple with an adorable little girl. My goal is to make sure that the fabric choice is suitable for the space aesthetically while maintaining its allure from a spill – anything from Lucky Charms to a splash of red wine (hopefully the little girl is not drinking the red wine, or we have bigger problems than the fabric!)
We’ve come a long way from the days of covering furniture in plastic and being afraid to use it. What's the point of having beautiful things but not being able to enjoy them?
Nobody likes to cry over spilled milk.
