Sometimes what you have is working – it just needs a pick me up.  Re-upholstery can work wonders.  Take this ottoman.  It is a vintage piece from France.  Great kidney bean shape, and beautiful gold leaved feet, but the fabric and the upholstery had seen much, much better days.
It needed help!  My amazing soft goods crew worked their magic, from sketching out my idea, to seeing it through production.  Here’s their amazing sketch:
A woven silk in burnt persimmon was applied and tufted to glorious results.
Look how the tone brings out the red undertone on the gold leafed feet.  Quite glamorous, for an equally glamorous NYC Pied-a-Terre.
