Tuft love

Posted on Tue, 24 Jul 2007 by KiM

Rosali emailed me the other day with an interesting request:
“Lately, I’ve noticed that beautiful green tufted chairs and sofas have shown up regularly on your site. I’m a big fan of tufted furniture and have several pieces but none green. I think that a post with a grouping of those green tufted pieces would make many people (or at least me) stand back in awe.”
Sounded like a pretty simple request. I think this photo was Rosali’s inspiration:

I too have a love for tuft, especially since purchasing a lime green tufted bench. It can make furniture that is drab and simple look glamorous. But after looking through TONS of photos, I couldn’t find many green tufted pieces. As a result, I’ve added some photos that have beautiful tufted pieces that are other colours as well.

ok – now i REALLY want to take an upholstery course!! I love that brown too eric. actually, I think that would be way easier to decorate with than the green one. A jacket in that brown leather would be cool.

It’s tuft to pick the one I like the best! All fab!!!

Li, what a great post, what great customer service on your part. I am not into the tufted sofas, but… and usually I’m not into rugs, but that rug in the Rug Company shot is to die for! I love the yellow screen too! Must work since the room is all white.

I always notice paintings, and I love the one in the Ifi shot. What is that next to the sofa, a clock? Very cute.

Nice use of “tuft” Jo. Got a chuckle out of me. Peggy, come to the tufted side. You’ll see the light. And That clock you speak of I believe was a summer Ikea item a couple of years ago.
