There is something so elegant and so unique about tufted pieces. I, for one, adore a tufted sofa or settee and I spare no expense when it comes to reupholstering my pieces in that diamond tufting I love so much. The result always takes my breath away, especially when I see antique settee or sofas in a modern setting.
Take these images for example. Have you ever seen anything so beautiful????
The vintage look of this fuschia tufted sofa against the stark white, modern decor and the crystal chandelier is absolutely gorgeous.

If you saw this vintage, tufted sofa in a thrift shop, your instinct may be to walk on by. But look at it within this modern decor against the fluted corinthian columns. Doesn't look so grandma-ish now, does it?
The white Belgian linen tufted Louis XV sofa with down cushion below was one of my favorite pieces. It traveled all the way from my store in New Orleans to Queensland, Australia, and now is in the home of my dear friend and talented designer, Frances Russell. She had searched for years for this piece and when she saw it in my blog, she had to have it.
There is something so spectacular about a white tufted sofa.....
You can see how crazy I am about them.....
