The Magic of Matelasse

Art in Background By Mary Maki Rae (c) 2012
We've just finished the new upholstery on this Elegant Vintage Bench for clients.
The Fabric: A soft Red Matelasse - intricately woven in a subtle floral pattern.
This material proved to be so flexible and as easy to the hand - as to the eye-!  A real pleasure to work with.

We decided to just fold the Fabric under at the edges next to the wood frame.
Then finish with French Nails - leaving a precisely measured space between each one.
The results were most pleasing - Simple and Elegant-!

I thought the "Tambourine" Print (c)2012
would look so beautiful with this piece-!
