Our first piece at the shop is the cute pink club chair below. It was custom slipcovered for the Red Shed by Barbie Sheffield of Sheffield's Custom Slips . Be sure to enlarge this photo and take a look at the pin tuck piping detail...it's gorgeous and so soft! Barbee is a seamstress extraordinaire! This great chair is only $289.00!Our second piece at The Shed is this gently owned, slipcoverd couch from Quatrine. Quatrine is the Rolls Royce of slipcovered furniture manufacturers. This 8 foot sofa is a dark tea stained linen, with a raw edge piping detail, and down cushions. The slipcover, as well as the sofa underneath, are both perfect! New, it would have been well over $6000.00, but it could be yours for only $1999.00. You know what a deal that is if you have priced out a similiar piece.
As I mentioned, I have pets. Two cats, one dog, and one grandchild. As well as various visiting grand pets, step pets, etc. Well, a twice a year washing is not that often. So I know what I do in the interim, but I wondered about everyone else? A while back one of our Red Shed customers sent us some photos from her daughter's new home in Austin. Her new home was filled with gorgeous slipcovered furniture from Quatrine, and it was SO FABULOUS, here are just a few photos:
Well, we were dieing with jealousy. I had met the mom, but not the daughter and the the first thing I said was "I guarantee you, NO PETS, NO KIDS!" . Imagine my surprise when a few weeks later, this adorable young mom was shopping at the Red Shed with her two toddlers and she identified herself as the daughter! I said "NO WAY!" and told her about my comments. She said that she had not only kids, but pets and that most of the time the furniture was covered with quilts.
