Custom Upholstery Adds Dimension to Design

Custom Drapery Designs spreads its styles beyond the windows to deep within the heart of a home and finds ways to incorporate the best and brightest fabrics throughout a client’s design.

We’ve seen how unique windows require special custom designs and even how bathrooms can benefit from a fabric touch. This creative reach encompasses furniture as well, through custom upholstery.

Often, small pieces, such as an ottoman or two, bring a bold update to a small space. This entryway begged for something special. We loved the curved ceiling and saw great design potential in the inlaid space on either side of this wooden door frame.

This space runs alongside the dining room CDD won an international design award for earlier this year. The Italian plaster artist who turned that room’s ceiling into a masterpiece, worked the same magic on this entry’s ceiling.

After the owners saw the finished design of their dining room, they knew their entry needed to match the glamour. So, they asked CDD to give them a breathtaking view across their dining table as well.

As with most of our projects, it all began with a vision shared with our client through sketches and fabric samples. Custom embroidered panels utilized this exquisite Holland & Sherry fabric. Each panel accentuated what had been an odd recess on either side of the door, transforming them into works of art.

Topping off the look, custom-designed ottomans added to the depth and detail of the design. Ottomans provide a small and simple—but powerful—pop to a room. They hold the capacity to add dimension, color or functionality to a room.

In this bedroom, the clover-shaped velvet ottoman with elegant beaded Scalamandré trim hit all three uses. The trim matched well with the upholstered bed frame while the violet in the bedding and the ottoman provided a subtle color splash. The exquisite couture details we included in this design bring elegance to the bedroom.

Soft elegance crowns this bedroom design with its velvet queen headboard. We adorned it with diamond button tufting and nailhead trim. The custom pillows round out the updates with perfect pairing, making this a design to sink into.

Each design we do brings us new challenges and opportunities. This room’s grand architecture and stately woodworking and glass panes demanded a sophisticated touch. Again, a custom touch made all the difference. With the carefully chosen fabrics and thoughtful placement of nailhead trim from Thibaut Design, we gave this room the furniture it deserved.

These pillow top ottomans include casters for easy moving and pair perfectly with the custom Barley Twist wingback chairs. The soft chenille upholstery works well with a Tuscany finished twist wood accent and pewter nailhead finish. Each little detail complements and accentuates the next.

We do love those exquisite couture details, and this entryway provides a shining example of them. We added platinum legs to this custom bench for extra elegance. The nailhead trim carries the silver sheen throughout the design. Adding a little glitz to the custom pillows gave one final shimmery layer to top it all off.

The custom cube ottomans in this sitting area add both function and texture. The Pierre Frey fabric perfectly covers these pieces. This company knows upholstery fabric and has been producing high quality options since 1935.

When we design a space, we like to envision the family living life and making memories in it. That’s something we can easily picture in this room.
