Painterly Furniture

A painterly brushstroke captures the mood and intention of an artist. This application on furniture carries the attributes of a painting. It’s spontaneous, dynamic and adaptable to direction. The palettes are endless. Fabric paints are widely available and it’s just as easy to use additives if you have latex paint lying around. I recently suggested to a client we paint her dining chairs to very loosely tell a story so when guests are present the dining room would still be animated. I would just as easily order a new piece and paint it, but before you recover or donate your tired old furniture consider a painterly approach.

 

I collaborated with an enormously talented artist Nina Santos in updating these tired chairs.

Valentine’s Day

 

 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Setting a table for those you love is a fun way to celebrate your Valentine(s). And staying in surrounded only by your closest sweethearts beats swimming in crowds celebrating young love. The flowers are from Roots, SLC Utah and the arrows are from Fletcher and Fox.
