Seeing Red — a wonderful new group in RED at by Design



[nggallery id=91]When Marlene started pulling these new red fabrics and leathers into a group, I knew we had to have it on our floor at by Design.  It is truly stunning.  And, though Valentine’s day is upon us, this is far more than some flash-in-the-pan holiday pr0ject.

Marlene began with our Estate Sofa.  The Estate is one of our “variations” designs that allow you to pick the design elements of your piece.  She designed a piece with:

  • rolled fan pleat arms with button
  • T-cushion triple seat cushions
  • attached single welt triple back pillows
  • fluted legs

She selected a red and white hounds tooth fabric (pattern 795273) for the sofa.  She welted it in a solid red fabric (pattern #260274) to accent the lines and break the hounds tooth pattern.  The pillows are a thin red and white awning stripe (pattern #562274) welted in the same solid red.  She added a crowning touch by covering the button on each arm in the solid red fabric.

The club chair and ottoman are our Ellis style.  They’re covered in a soft and wonderful red leather (#9D0375).  Check out the silver nail-heads she applied to the Ellis!

The final upholstered piece in this group is the Sara swivel-glide recliner.  The Sara is covered in comfy looking washed red print that adds a relaxed, fun attitude to the group.

Really nice job Marlene.
