Set of armchairs belonging to an important décor in the spirit of the 17th century
This decor demonstrates with great clarity the way embroidery can enrich and give a personal touch to any textile element. In the present case, the interior designer has chosen to introduce a certain diversity, without disrupting the continuity of the decor.
Every composition, every vase, every armrest, which covers the armchairs is different, be it by the disposition of the flowers or the distribution of colours, bouquet after bouquet.
The embroidered work, very impressive, results of a rather simple procedure:
first we need to be in possession of an image of the armchairs as they are, to which are added directions through key-words from the decorator: ‘ rich bouquets, masculine decor, blue, red, gold, vases all different, on a background of cream metallic thread.’
With these indications, we got in touch with the upholsterer of the client to obtain the dimensions, shapes and other technical requirements needed for the disposition of the embroideries. A preliminary watercolour was then painted for final approval by the decorator, as were the dyes of the woollen threads.
Once all this was validated, the embroidery work properly speaking could start, in order to deliver it in an eight weeks delay.
