I have been zipping about Monaco and lapping up the principality like so much rose wine. Prince Albert’s wedding is coming up in July, so the country is really buzzing and scrubbing itself up for its big day.
But more on my travels later…
A new subscriber asks, “Why orange welting on your dining room chairs?”
So here’s a little about why we use welting and what makes welting such a magical element for us. We love details, whether they be chairs that feature one pattern upon the front and another upon the back or a console that we have lacquered in two contrasting shades. It’s the details that really make an interior sing.
Welting takes a lovely fabric and highlights it, makes it “pop.” And you can really have fun with welting and shoot for the stars. If you have multiple dining chairs, why not use the same fabric on each chair but change out the welting. The chairs will look like a million bucks, and the various weltings will keep the eye engaged and certainly generate interest and conversation. Welting is a good way to take something pretty and give it PIZZAZZ.
Enough talking, here are images of spots where we have incorporated welting into our designs. Maybe this will inspire you to incorporate welting the next time you have a pillow done up or you reupholster a chair or sofa.
Have fun: There really are no rules with welting.
