“I believe in doing the thing you feel is right. If it looks right, it is right.” – Dorothy Draper, Interior Designer
Whether it’s the smooth curvatures of the fabric or the inset buttons that attract one to these pieces, there’s no denying that the look of tufted upholstery immediately catches the eye. The padded shapes and shadows that form from tufts set an elegant stage and a more dramatic sentiment. For instance, this tufted headboard on the Oxford Bed, presents a subtle, yet luxurious statement.
It’s not all about tufted beds, however. Tufted chairs and sofas have also captured our attention of late. This Henredon tufted leather chair with ottoman looks stately yet cozy and everyday lounge-ready. The coffee-brown classic leather is adorned with nail-heads around the base to give it just enough of a contemporary touch.
Savannah Collections’ own Franklin Occasional Chair takes the tufted style back to a classically romantic look that’s infused with a timeless quality.
Tufted-cushion benches, though smaller, can add an understated elegance to any space. The Milford Bench shown below boasts impeccably stitched European silk contrasted by its unique twisted leg design.
Individually, buttons and tufts and stitching may not mean much, but combined together in a purposeful way, the effect can be wonderfully enchanting. High end furniture that is equally cozy can make for a truly blissful living space.
