Sofa & beanbag for Skype

I designed and constructed this sofa for Skype. Backrest of sofa follows the curves of their logo. As this sofa is intended for use at their roadshow and will be subjected to natural elements and heavy use, a water resistance canvas is used for its cover.
Bean bags are easier to transport around for road shows..n very very comfy for Skype's user :-p


Pipings can do wonders

Remember my earlier post, the one with the red pipings? Well that is a good example of using a sharp contrasting colors to "jazz it up" a otherwise "just there" chair. It's an art decor piece that draws attention. Though I must add that the owner's husband was a bit taken back at first ;-)
Here is more examples of what contrasting pipings can be used to liven up and bring characteristics to fabric.Contrasting piping gives the extra "wow" factor. Here pink is used to liven up the subtle lavender/gold weaves. Sofa is actually placed over a carpet with intricate designs and some mauve colors weaving into it.
I especially love the vibrancy of this fabric! Contrasting greens, blacks and white lines with black pipings give this otherwise discarded iron wrought bench a new lease of life again. Such colors combination is most suitable for small piece of furniture as it will really draws attention and at the same time not get too loud.
(this wrought iron bench was hunter green initially; my client repainted to black to match the fabric!)

Burgundy red covers for a more sophisticated look and yet dark enough to be "kid friendly"
Pillow covers with contrasting colors liven up the suite, creating a "happier" play area for the 2 growing kids.


Remember this chair? Before - non descript. Now transformed to an art decor piece with character. Note how the red piping coordinates with the zebra's painting behind. Cover for toss pillow has 2 sides to it. Solid red when there's a need for attention and matching print with pipings when in a slightly more subtle mood ;-p
