Bespoke Armchair

Richter12

A chair with a lot of personality started off life with a much more somber fabric. After several decades, it was ready for a new look. Its owner wanted a fresh crisp new look. See the Before and After gallery for more photos of the transformation.

Red Rover

This client had purchased a unique Adrian Pearsall chair and ottoman years ago. Like many mid-century pieces today, the foam was disintegrating and coming through the fabric. In addition, the fabric was worn and parts of the wood trim had fallen off. He chose a beautiful red and gold jacquard to recover the piece in. New foam was installed and the wooden legs were cleaned up and the brass casters were machine polished to their original luster. Check out the Before and After page for more on the restoration.

Cabo Chic

Halcyon Design worked with a client in Cabo San Lucas and contracted us to make an assortment of things for the project. We created a variety of pillows, headboards and recovered two ottomans in a very beautiful Missoni fabric.

Custom Window Bench

This newly created dining area included a window bench. The client wanted it comfortable and modern, but were concerned about guests having a window ledge in their back. We solved the problem by making a one-piece 10′ long buttoned cushion with back bolsters.

The fabric is a designer line with fade resistant properties.

Clean Lines

This chair was a curbside find for this client in Tinton Falls, NJ. He chose a men’s suiting fabric with a pronounced white pinstripe and selected white vinyl for the seat and back.

Check out the Before and After section to see the transformation.

Sophisticated Stripe

This chair was a personal curbside find the day before Thanksgiving many years ago. The springs in the seat were broken, the brass leg caps were tarnished so that they appeared to not even be metal, and the leather was torn and ugly.

I knew it had a lot of potential. I disassembled it and sent the frame to a David Masenheimer for refinishing. The handrubbed finish went beautifully with the striped cotton fabric I chose.

The chair is very regal now and is a feature in my living room.

Egg Chairs

Apparel manufacturer Canali updated their showroom for a new fall line. The showroom designer chose to have two Jacobsen egg chairs recovered in chocolate brown men’s suiting felt. In addition, a curved bench in the reception area was slip-covered in the same fabric to tie the whole look together.

Grosgrain Slipcovers

Women’s apparel manufacturer Rena Lange was showing their latest line in their showroom. They bought modular furniture for the event that could be slipcovered and re-used for other occasions.

Three story boards were presented as inspired by collection. One of the looks was chosen and slipcovers were made for all of the furniture.

Display Boxes

Menswear retailer Canali needed a series of small boxes constructed to display accessories in their showroom. A handsome brown felt suiting was chosen to cover them and contrasting top stitching added a detail of luxury.

Black Leather

A longtime friend and client was changing the decor of her home and wanted a more sophisticated and sexy look to some pieces of furniture she owned.  We took this ottoman and made it more handsome and sleek by covering it in black leather.  Custom finished nails were also added around the corners at the legs.
