Sneakity Peeks from Last Week's Install

Our client's living room installation last week turned out beautifully & I thought I'd share a few details.  The spool chairs are covered in my "Squircles" in Oatmeal/ Fresh Blue.  (It's a custom coloway we had done for our client on the oatmeal groundcloth so she wouldn't have to worry about white.)  And you can just spy the teensiest bit of the curtains that we had done in my Happikat in Fresh Blue.   We paired the more traditional spool chair with a Saarinen side table for a fresh mix.     ...
