Secret Source Revealed

Today I'm going to share a secret source with those of you who live in Dallas!  

I have worked hard over the years to build a team of craftspeople who bring my designs to life and make my client's homes look incredible.  Every job requires the talent of a "village" of craftspeople like painters, carpenters, installers and upholstery and drapery workrooms.  I am lucky that I have had designer-friends and other people in the trade share their secret sources with me, so today I am going to pay it forward!

Meet Bob Wilson...

Bob Wilson of Unique Upholstery in Dallas (near Fair Park)
If you have furniture that you need to reupholster then this is your man!  I first met Bob when I was working on a project a few years ago and my client's friend had recommended him.  I was a little nervous to try someone new and to be honest his workroom is a little off the beaten path, but his prices were too good to resist so we decided to take the risk!  And, I am SO GLAD that I did!

I am a big proponent of reupholstering antiques or other old furniture that you love and just aren't ready to part with.  It is such a great way to breathe new life into a piece of furniture that already has history and character.

I am such a "detail" girl and I need workrooms who I can trust to pay attention to the small things like trims, pleats, flanges, contrast welts, etc.  Above is a pair of "bergeres" aka french chairs that Bob recently reupholstered for one of my clients.  I requested a 1/2" flange with pleated corners on the cushions and a gimp trim along the frame... they turned out beautifully!

In addition to being a talented upholsterer... Bob may just be the sweetest man I have ever met!  Please call him at (214) 827-8262 and don't forget to tell him that I sent you.  Enjoy!
