TREND ALERT

This summer we've been seeing french-stiched cushions popping up all over the place. Everything in your home should have something that makes it special, whether it is a family heirloom, has spectacular frame detail or maybe even an interesting cushion detail like these ones from Roberta Roller Rabbit...

Or these custom daybeds that GEORGE created for a clients guest bedroom/sitting room in Manhattan Beach.

Custom french-stiched daybeds pictured here with a custom tufted ottoman. The client re-purposed the fantastic vintage base which used to be a side table!

This adorable sofa exudes a fun, beachy feeling, with individually tufted and stiched bench seat and seat back cushions.
The french-stiching can also add a fun detail to these fireside built-in benches...

Or they can add something spectacular in a more formal setting pictured here at the blue velvet sofa and shapely side chair with nailheads...

And lastly - they can soften up the edges in a mid-century setting - as they do here on this sofa with wings.
Next time you're thinking about upholstering something, consider french-stiched cushions! Or, if you are looking for something pre-made... try Ballard Designs already made farmhouse cushions!
