Fretwork describes an interlaced decorative pattern (usually geometric) in design. Here is an example of a fretwork fabric adorning this beautiful little settee in the NYC residence that we first told you about last summer.
As you can tell, the space isn't extremely large (it is NYC) but the homeowners did want to have a comfortable place to sit just off the kitchen that was an easy place to feed small kids (the Pedestal table and ghost chair are super easy to wipe down!).
To keep the settee kid-friendly, we had the fabric treated prior to upholstering. Spills bead up but do not absorb.
There is space to the left of the table to easily pass through to the kitchen and also to pull up a high chair if need be.
Such a beautiful little space! Here's a better picture of that gorgeous stone floor:
