This week we feature the Venice Chair from the Wills Collection. The chair has been dressed and finished in fabrics chosen by Tigger Hall Design and features fabric from Kathryn Ireland’s Collection. It is called Safi Suzani in the colour Autumn.
The Venice Chair is often paired with the Venice Sofa. Featuring a solid hardwood frame, hand tied coils seat springs and beautiful French polished hand turned legs, the Venice series is finished with brass castors.
This custom designed Venice Sofa pictured here has been upholstered in Ziffony The Gondolier Twilight supplied by the Domestic Textile Corporation. It’s a stunning rendition of the streets of Venice and its famed waterways and it certainly compliments the classic design.
With both traditional and contemporary furniture the addition of Ottomans provides a further dimension in both comfort and visual appeal. The Ottoman adds grace and elegance to any space with a practical element all approve of – comfort.
Pictured here is the traditional diamond buttoned Ottoman from the Wills Furniture Collection. Order custom designed Ottomans in any size or shape in fabric or leather as chosen by you and your selected designer or decorator.
The Ottoman has a rather interesting and unique history having been introduced into Europe from the Ottoman Empire in the late 18th Century. In the Ottoman Empire, the ottoman , as we have come to know it was the central item of furniture for seating and often were piled high with cushions. In Europe it was adopted as fitted furniture wrapped around 3 walls of a room. Ottomans became circular or octagonal as we now see them today during the 19th Century.
