Did you know I studied Interior Design in college? Not like my humble abode shows any real signs of it… it is much easier to spend other people’s money, you know.
Anyway, one of my favorite FAVORITE favorite sections to study was on modern furniture. Well, all the furniture fascinated me. But the modern furniture was really fun to study along with the designers behind the pieces.
So, to begin, let’s start with history’s finest places to rest your bottom:
The Louis XVI, armless (seen in the fabric as well):
A little French Fauteuil:
And onto the modern; the Danish piece inspired by Shaker furniture, the J39 (the likeness of which is actually in the fabric):
The Brno chair, which I always want to spell Bruno:
And a personal favorite, the Tulip chair.
There were lots of other modern pieces I wanted to put in here, but since the line is Tufted Tweets, I thought it was only appropriate to include modern furniture’s heavily upholstered ancestors with all their curvy lines and minute details. As minute as you can get with some embroidery floss.
Can I say how much FUN this is going to be all finished? I mean, it is rockin’ now but it isn’t even done yet. I’m so excited. I need more fabric, though. Shame!
