At Mignonne, we love updating old furniture pieces with new and exciting fabrics and colors, but sometimes an antique is beautiful as is in it's original era. This settee was brought to us from a client who loved the style and wanted to keep it in their victorian era home. Therefore, the client was sure she wanted to restore, but also reupholster with "a victorian era type fabric". We definitely understand the importance of keeping antiques true to their era, and whenever this is requested we are happy to do so.
For this project, we were able to find a nice striped print fabric that lends itself quite well with the era, while also adding a refreshing new approach to the look of the settee. We kept the frame original, with just a thorough cleaning and oiling.
Yet another example of how reupholstery can completely transform furniture, no matter what era.
