I always think it’s neat when I describe a paint or fabric color by the feeling it gives me or something it reminds me of and then find out that the name of that paint color or fabric color is actually called something very similar. I’m sure this isn’t a coincidence.
By looking at this twenty year old eggplant colored loveseat you would think it’s seen better days. The fabric has a few rips in places and the print and color are dark and busy. But all you have to do is sit for a second on this loveseat and you will know why my client decided she had to give it an update.The foam seat cushions have a down pillow top and bottom. Ooo-la-la. It’s so soft and comfortable. The back pillows needed just a little refresh with some poly-fill, but that’s it.
Natalie wanted to pull the colors together in her sitting room by finding a color similar to her window treatments, the print in her side chair and an accent color in her rug. She was looking for something with texture, neutral and easy to care for. We found the perfect shade of creamy buttery yellow from Revolution Fabrics called Grande Butter. Coincidence? I think not.
Though this high performance fabric is not “washable” like a slipcover would typically be, it is removeable for cleaning if needed. Revolution fabrics are inherently stain resistant and can be spot cleaned for most stains and if need be can even be bleached without damaging the fabric or stripping the color.
The original loveseat had a very relaxed, uncorded, topstitched cushions but Natalie wanted to go for something a bit more structured looking and so opted to go with cording in the same color, to outline the chair and cushions.A set of arm covers to protect the arms, a couple of updated throw pillows and you have a “new” loveseat that pulls together the whole room.
What an impressive makeover and my client and her husband were thrilled!
