I am so happy to report that two designers with whom I work have been named finalists in the 2017 Westchester Home Design Awards! It's a thrill to see one's work in a space that has been recognized as one of the top three in its category in the county. I'm so fortunate to work with these (and many other) talented, driven, and committed professionals. When they let loose their creativity, they allow the work of so many fabricators to shine.
Katherine Stern was nominated for the category Library or Home Office. Katherine and I brainstormed to create some of the most exciting roman shades I've ever made. You can read about them on this blog post which details how we broke up the 54" wide fabric and re-constructed the pattern so it would fit in the space. Click on this article link and scroll down to see the entire room after it was finished, and the brilliant way in which Katherine has used color and industrial metals to create what she calls "a dynamic tension."
In the category Best Use of Small Spaces, designer Denise Wenacur was nominated for transforming a bonus room into this tranquil meditation space. We fabricated the roman shades and window seat cushions. I love how the light enhances the texture of the pale grey linen blend which was lined in a sheer.
