Shabby Chic & Washable Wonders have arrived!

Talk about a comfortable chair to curl up in! Our new Dover Armchair from the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic collection by Miles Talbott Furniture arrived yesterday. We now have the full handle of all available fabrics from the collection including everything from washed velvets and linens to exclusive Shabby Chic prints and wonderfully distressed leathers.

"Uncomplicated elegance" is often how the Shabby Chic style is described. Slipcovered armchairs, sofas and ottomans are easily at home in a cottage, an urban apartment or a traditional sun room.

Nothing beats the ease and comfort of this line and this chair beckons to be sat in! Like every customer who has walked in today, as soon as Julie got to work at the store this morning she took a seat to test it out. Stop by soon to try it yourself!

We also received a new shipment of the Miles Talbott Furniture Washable Wonders Collection. Our first shipment for the floor sold in a matter of days after arriving, so we are quite happy to have new pieces in. This time we chose Washed Carlton Fog for the Sara Loveseat and Washed Portofino Saffron for the Judy Chair. Our designer Rachael also picked out the fun accent pillows in Washed Linen Fly which are kicked up a notch with an unexpected contrast welt in Washed Portofino Saffron to tie the pieces in together. All of the Washable Wonders slipcovers are machine washable and all of the fabrics have been tested to hold up to the rigors of everyday life!

(we also received an AMAZING shipment of Bougainvillea arrangements this week . . .will post on that soon too!)

Why decorate your home with items that can't become part of your everyday life and used by everyone in the family (4 legged friends included)? Get comfortable with Shabby Chic and totally practical with Washable Wonders . . .a lesson I could have learned when we decorated our first house.
This was our cat Sully, in one of his many favorite sleeping chairs. He was a stray that was always hanging around outside our first house. One night during a thunderstorm I let him in and carefully placed a towel on top of an ottoman for him to lay on. He graciously obliged and laid on that towel for roughly 3 or 4 days. Flash forward 5 years and there wasn't a cushion in the house that Sully didn't consider his own. Oh how nice a washable slipcover would have been!
