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...
