We shared the beginnings of this project with you a few months ago when we had first started scheming and creating a floor plan for it. Yesterday we installed one of the final pieces of the “puzzle”: this console and wall of art. We found these beautiful vintage glicee bird prints while we were at Brimfield this past September and had them reframed in some great faux bamboo frames. The Chinese Chippendale chairs on either side of the console were actually found on Ebay by our client! We covered them in a graphic Alan Campbell fabric to freshen them up and make them feel more modern. We love how these birds really fill this wall space and suggest this type of arrangement for any space that has a large wall that is also a major passageway. The trick to making a collection of art like this look right is hanging them fairly close together. We hung these 1.5 inches apart. A little behind the scenes Our client ordered some beautiful ceramic lamps that hadn’t arrived in time for the installation, so we brought in a pair of our own to stand in for the time being.
