Luxurious Charm: Tufted Furniture
"You may concentrate on appearances all through the rest of your house, but in the bedroom comfort should be supreme." - Dorothy Draper, Interior Designer
Smooth curves of luxurious fabric inset buttons that attract one to these pieces, there's no denying that the look of tufted upholstery immediately catches the eye. The padded shapes and shadows that form from tufts set an elegant stage and a more dramatic sentiment. For instance, this tufted headboard on the Oxford Bed, presents a subtle, yet luxurious statement.
It's not all about tufted beds, however. Tufted chairs and sofas have also captured our attention of late. This Henredon tufted leather chair with ottoman looks stately yet cozy and everyday lounge-ready. The coffee-brown classic leather is adorned with nail-heads around the base to give it just enough of a contemporary touch.
Savannah Collections' own Franklin Occasional Chair reinvigorates the tufted style in this classic chair and ottoman combination. Infused with a timeless quality, these high end furniture pieces will enhance any space in your home.
Tufted-cushion benches, though smaller, can add an understated elegance to any space. The Milford Bench shown below boasts impeccably stitched European silk contrasted by its unique twisted leg design.
Simple buttons and tufts and stitching may not amount to much on their own, but joined together in a purposeful way and the end result can be wonderfully charming. Luxury furniture that is equally cozy can make for a truly blissful living space.
