New Bench Cushion for Showroom

While the showroom makeover has mostly been on the backburner due to client work, I have managed to make a few decisions.  I’m obsessed with this creamy zebra weave and decided to use it on my showroom bench.  I got my cushions back on Friday and have been enjoying the change.




The old bench fabric was matched to the island top and while pretty, made the whole piece feel heavier.  I like how the new fabric is the perfect compliment to the island/bench.  It blends together and feels much more neutral, but still has a bit of zeeebrah personality.

I’ll be taking the showroom in a much more neutral direction.  Instead of matching my fabrics to my blue/green island top, I’ll be complimenting them and layering on neutrals.  I think it will make for a much lighter, diverse, sophisticated-hip space.

I’m also working on a little chair redo in my spare time.  Hopefully I’ll be able to share that next Monday.

Did you all have good weekends?  I got zero accomplished and it was absolutely wonderful.  Sometimes being lazy is so damn luxurious.

  1. I got one coat of paint on a piece of furniture and that was it. At least its something, I love having lazy weekends!

  2. Great pick. Love the fabric. Good for you for taking a break this weekend….. that’s what weekends are for! :)

    I applaud your decisiveness and love the new direction! Neutral with a punch feels good to me right now.

  4. Love the fabric choice. Definitely more hip and you. I like the idea of complimenting and not matching. Good thinking.

  5. Oh my gosh, I love this combo! The rug with the zebra is such a fun juxtaposition and I love the bit of color in the rug. Job well done, lady!

  6. Super clean, subtle and graphic! Recipe for a classic look…love the bright white mix…great choice against that banquette!
