Our “Salerno” collection of smaller scaled, upholstered pieces captures the essence of Louis XV styling with a twist for today’s consumer! Graceful, shapely back rails in solid oak wrap around the back and flow gracefully down to the hand carved, cabriole legs that are present on all the upholstered pieces. The solid oak wood is made casually elegant due to the unique and easy to live with sand gray distressed wood finish. The down-scrolled arms on these pieces also feature a delicate padded arm treatment for additional detail and seating comfort. Both the settee and the bergere chair – along with the accent ottoman that will fit with either the settee or the chair – have the look of a linen from afar but are upholstered in a luscious, high performance, 100% polyester chenille. This unique construction makes the fabric extremely durable as well as comfortable…truly the perfect companion fabric to complement the extraordinary seating comfort that comes from pillows and seat cushions that are filled with a blend of fiber as well as feathers and down – about a 60/40 combination – and all are wrapped in a down proof ticking to safely encase all feathers! The result is a very soft seat that maintains its general shape by the addition of the poly fiber filling. Cushions are reversible and can be fluffed whenever needed, or flipped, and are zippered as well to enable dry cleaning when needed. Both the settee and the upholstered chair would be equally at home in any living room or bedroom/guest room. Of course, the signature look to this collection is the delicate yet substantive three dimensional embroidery, in a contemporized taupe thread, whose intricate scrolling shapes further reflects the gentle curves of the carvings in the wood trim. The embroidery is on one side of the pillows only for the ability to mix-n-match, and these down filled pillows help to create a handcrafted, artisan feeling of days gone by, and can also be used on the bed when needed… for a complete bedroom ensemble! Our upholstered bench would be wonderful at the foot of any bed (see also our B??? Fantasia upholstered headboard in the same fabric with the same embroidery treatment!) or under any sofa table in a living room for extra seating when needed, or even in an entrance or hallway. Have fun trying any these pieces in different rooms of your home!
