Things are changing here in the social media corner of Sheffield Furniture & Interiors, and we couldn’t be more excited! Starting today, we will be sharing even more design, style, and entertaining tips, as well as sale updates and behind the scenes photos.

 

Before we switch things up, we want to introduce ourselves. I’m Amanda, and as you may have guessed, I am in charge of the words. So most of the writing you find on social media comes from me. We also occasionally have guest writers who will sign their posts.

 

My teammate, Carolyn, is in charge of all the beautiful photos and graphics. Together, we come up with ideas and topics to share with you. We will be bringing you more fun behind the scenes snapshots and exciting, informative content!

 

If you have anything specific you’d like to see on our blog or social media pages, please let us know by clicking here to leave a comment.

 

Until next time!

Take A Seat

We have some exciting news! We will be joining designers from all around the Philadelphia area in the annual IFDA (International Furnishings and Design Association) Take a Seat charity exhibition and auction. We, like the other designers, will be designing and donating a chair that will later be sold to benefit local charities. We’re absolutely thrilled to be participating in this event, so we decided to document our chair design process and share our excitement with you.

 

Our Chair selection for the IFDA event is the Louis XVI chair by Hickory Chair. We chose a simple reupholstery to demonstrate how drastically customizations, such as fabric selection and finishing, could change the character of a chair.

First, we stripped off the old fabric, and then we hand-painted gold detailing on the legs to accentuate the gorgeous design and flow seamlessly with the gold in our selected fabric.

We decided to give the chair a royal flair by selecting a rich red fabric and sophisticated gold pattern to cross the surfaces of the seat and back.

Each selection—from the fabric to the gold highlights—was made to accent the unique, attractive qualities of the chair’s design. We opted for a contrasting back fabric to bring out the deep, royal red tones of the pattern. And on the front, we had the welt cord folded on a bias to subtly accent the pattern. Our chair, Imperial Design, will be auctioned on October 16th at the Take a Seat charity auction.
