showroom tour: francis king

January 18, 2012

Francis King, Ltd. is one of our favorite furniture showrooms at IMS. Charlie, Mary, Lynn, Kali and Petra are all wonderful – they help us find our clients some wonderfully unique pieces for their homes.  The last time we were in their showroom, we snapped some pictures of the new furniture and accessories they have.

You’ll notice lots of color for 2012…

Chairs and a decorative pillow from Francis King showroom.

Above: These two upholstered chairs have beautiful soft curved lines and can be custom ordered  to be upholstered in endless choices of fabric.

Above: The bold snail pillow adds a pop of color and whimsy to sofa or chair.  The pillow’s poppy-tangerine and watery blue are some of Pantone’s colors for Spring.

Color takes center stage in th Francis King showroom.

Above: Color definitely is taking center stage this season in the showroom. You can find purple upholstered chairs, amber colored hurricanes, bright red garden stools, bold green accessories and much, much more.

Another benefit to this wonderful showroom is that they feature many made in America furniture lines.

Francis King sells to the trade only so if you’d like a peek to see what could work in your home, give us a call – we’d be glad to give you a showroom tour.

Stay tuned for finished pictures from our current cabin remodel up on Clearwater Lake! We’re just putting together the final touches…

Here’s a sneak peak at the kitchen bench that we designed to fit seamlessly in with the cabinetry, along with the fabric pillow selections…

When choosing these fabrics from Kravet, we kept the scale of the three fabrics in mind so they would all jive together.

Because they are all at different scales (one is a large scale pattern, one is a medium stripe, and one is a small pattern) they all work and create a cohesive look.

Check back in a few weeks for finished pictures from this project!

design tips: pillows

September 21, 2010

At West Elm, you can find these fun pillows made from Mongolian lamb's wool. Add them to your sofa for instant drama!

Pillows are a fun and easy way to spruce up a room.  And we’ll all be in need of a little ‘sprucing’ here in a bit as we enter the grey months of winter!

But… we’re not there yet, so to get your idea wheels turning, here are some fun pillows and tips to go with them… enjoy!

Custom pillows, like these made from Romo fabrics, are a great way to get the exact look you are going for. They are an easy way to add a pop of color, and it's easy enough to switch them out when your style changes.

Go for stripes! Stripes work well in traditional, transitional, and modern space alike. Try looking for added details like piping or trim on the edges for a custom look.
