CHARLES STEWART FURNITURE





I hope you guys rocked the weekend.....
I started the cleaning process to get ready for the shower but it was slow going.  Managed to get the slipcovers washed which in itself is like doing 10 loads of laundry.  

Say what you want....yes I love my white slips but dang they are kind of high maintenance.  Sometimes I want to cover everything in black.....sit back and relax.  

Bring on the dirt:)

I thought I might tell you about some of the furniture I used on my last project.  The Charles Stewart Company has been around since 1987.  Selling only to the trade they have an extensive collection of products along with a 5 day quick ship collection.

Since we were on such a tight time frame I ordered a few of the quick ship along with some other items and we actually sent a truck to pick everything up instead of shipping.

Sometimes you gotta be creative:)

Here is what we ordered:

1 sofa
2 club chairs
1 occasional chair
1 bench
10 dining chairs
5 barstools

They are pretty much COM [customers own material] although recently they have added a few fabrics to choose from.

The sofa is called the Bromley


It definitely has clean lines with a traditional feel.




Hard to tell but the fabric is a pretty spring green.

The Cooper Lounge chair
In this beautiful light gray/green wool

The Pamlico Chair

Love the modern feel.
This fabric had a silver sheen and we ordered it in the finish above thinking if it was too white Larry the magical faux painter could fix!

The Teri Bench

Love how it would be easy to change out the cushions to another fabric.


This time a modern watercolor feel in the fabric with a darker finish.

The Martock Barstool

This is such a great stool.  Even though we used a faux fabric it's nice to have the small wood area for people to pull it out.

The Cochran Diner
This Kravet Smart fabric is stain resistant but still pretty enough for a DR.  The finish is a gray/driftwood.

My inspiration for the chairs was this beautiful dining room by Jennifer McGee

Here are the finishes to choose from!

Plus you can pretty much custom most pieces to your specifications.

The Pamlico Chair

We actually left the finish alone....

Sofa

Pillow fabric with trim


This is how it looked the day it all arrived....and yes....I had my doubts about those sconces [I felt like a picky client who started second guessing before the room is finished] ....but after accessorizing the room and adding some great art I breathed a sign of relief!
 

It's a large room so we have another small seating area along with a desk.

I've posted the barstools before but they turned out so great!  Love the brass trim on the foot rest.

Every piece of furniture was perfect....no scratches or bad wrinkles in fabric.  I am definitely a fan!

Answering a question....The florist just pulled the petals of the tulip open!


Get going this week....

Beautiful! I like all the options with the furniture. The green smart fabric from Kravet is gorgeous. And I dig the sconces--can't wait to see it all together.

And this is why you're the pro. All these decisions...furniture pieces, fabrics and finishes! Oy I'm sweating and having an anxiety attack just thinking about it. And to have it turn out great? Wtf? HOW do you do it?!?!?!

Just wanted "to second" your comments on Charles Stewart Furniture!! Through my decorator, I have ordered 2 sofas in the last couple of years from Charles Stewart - and have been completely satisfied (and wow'ed) by the quality of the sofas, the reasonable prices as well as the delivery of those sofas!

We've known the owner of Charles Stewart and his family before this business was established. One seldom meets anyone with such high ideals and rigid ethics. I feel anyone knowing that could order anything with confidence. So glad you're willing to give the praise this firm's products deserve.
I, too, am looking forward to the final reveal of this lovely home. By the way, I'm a different Anonymous..... and love seeing your talents displayed in your posts.

I love the freshness of the pale Barbara Barry green with the gray! Jus the little pop of color yet still neutral! Bravo!

I'd love to know more about that rug in the living room! It seems to be such a nice, subtle pattern and color - so hard to fins that.

Sherry, what a wonderful job!!I Love all your fabric choices and the clean lines of the sofa and the chairs. Are they as comfortable as they are pretty? Have a good one! Leslie

Love the peacefulness of the space (unlike the perpetual chaos in my house--and there are only two of us)!

Hi. I am thinking about ordering two of the Bromley sofas through a designer, but I am VERY hesitant without having sat on them. Is it a comfortable sofa? How firm is that bench seat? Do you know of any showroom in the northeast with the Bromley on the floor? Thanks!

Elise, Call 8283229464 for the Charles Stewart Company.
I do have a showroom in Atlanta and another rep in Charlotte NC has one as well but someone at the company will be able to tell you where the local representative may have items on the floor or their contact information in your area.
How firm of a seat do you need? You can choose several seat cushions fills, however my clients here in Georgia seem to go with the Spring Down seat fill, but if it's a firm fill you need, go Standard fill. It still has a spring within the cushion, but no down wrap.

The web site may help you as well. www.charlesstewartcompany.com
