Before & After's to Inspire

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I know that by now you all know that we can help transform your unlovables...but I think sometimes seeing the before & after says it all!

You know what colors you are drawn to, what inspires you, what feels good in your space... and if you don't, & you need that creative push..we are here!

Let us know what you are wanting to achieve, and tell us about the space you are working with! Together we can create a stand alone piece that lights up the room. No matter how simple or bold of a design, Mignonne can help transform a forgotten piece.

Remember that with our rental services as well, we can assist in creating those core pieces that photograph well, and make a space come alive for your special day of! Our increasingly growing rental core collection is available for those special events that need some sprucing...

The Bohemian Settee

This lovely settee is the newest creation to hit the shop, and if I had a big enough boudoir she would have been coming home with me! This piece 'Rush' hits all eras, and marries all styles...wrapped up in luscious textures and colors. The body is a royal blue velveteen, with grassy linen piping, and framboise Ikat splashes. Custom boudoir, matching circular pillow adds just the right accent. I want theses pieces to last, to be usable, to be something not just for show, and what better way than to wrap the body in a velvet that only becomes more romantic with time!

But beyond the fabrics there is the gem of the antique frame itself. It's spindle details, and original casters date the piece to the 1910's/20's. It's been stabilized and reinforced to last another hundred years. She measures 51" long, 2ft wide, 30" tall (back), so she is petite, another feature hard to find in a settee.

So for all the ladies who have swooned over having that perfect boudoir piece, remember we can help you to achieve it...

fresh new look!

By now, you've seen our new website and our new logo! After five years, we thought it was time for an update.

But have you seen or heard about Mignonne's new furniture showroom?

We recently expanded and now occupy two storefronts on San Pablo Avenue at Dwight. Our new space has a fresh, clean and inviting look ... loads of open space showcasing our furniture and d├ęcor collection.

To coincide with our expansion, we have several new pieces recently designed by Johnelle Mancha, including upholstered furniture and handmade cushions.

More interesting news about the space and our services is on the way ... we have more in store for you at Mignonne.

(here's a sneak peek!! come on by and check it out ... don't you love that shiny white floor??)

Painterly Pillows that make a mark...

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I am obsessed with these new pillows I just designed and got in... Who says art has to be hung on a wall?? But seriously, these overstuffed accent pillows are my favorite and latest creation. They are down filled, and have custom zippers. Reverse matte denim backs, with canvas paint splattered fronts, pop orange piping...

I love how these pillows can make a space, a simple couch can be transformed to have that bit of artistic flare/conversation. They are the first of my limited series. Available now and can also ship these little gems...xoxo

All Dressed Up...

Monday, May 2, 2011

I love mixing and matching things as you'll see in the shop! I am a big believer that anything can go in design, as long as it is put together with intention... a little bit of this and that can be just the things that make your space inviting & exciting. I picked up these two different shaped tables, and wanted to create a bedside set that could live together. I started playing around with their finish.. as I often do with my pieces, never quite sure what they'll become, and they quickly became a darling his and her 'tuxedo' set. The painterly finish makes them not so obvious, and wanted them to read more as a canvas.. Staged with a bit of pop color here and there with books, lamps and jewelry, this set is sure to shine. xx
