Our Best

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.

On a Mission

Image_003

 

Harvey Ellis Dining Table and Chairs

 

Mission furniture is a widely loved style that dates back to the late 1800s. The furniture is as enduring as its
appeal, often becoming treasured heirlooms for generations.
So what is it about Mission furniture that makes it so timeless? It’s in the simple beauty of the design. According to an article on The Arts & Crafts Society’s website, here are a few features that, together, truly define the
Mission style:

 

• simple straight-lines
• medium or dark stained wood
• substantial, but well proportioned pieces
• distinct lack of unnecessary ornament
• wood of the best quality
• leather upholstery (mostly)
• simple iron or copper hardware

 

(Read full article here: http://bit.ly/1K5bxUr)
The solid, wood form gives the furniture a warm, rustic feel, but the simple geometric shapes also satisfy the desire for simplicity.

The clean designs and integrity of the construction are just a few reasons why Mission is so loved. According to the The Arts & Crafts Society’s website, the “…workmanship [of Mission] must be exact, as any imperfections are at once noticeable in furniture of such simple lines.” There is no room for error in the making of Mission—a flawed piece would be obvious and thus unappealing both visually and structurally.

 

Mission furniture is often made of oak and completed with various finishes.
