New Fabric, New Leather, Cushionings and Springs – Refresh and Renew With Wills Furniture.

To provide a real lift to your treasured period lounge suite it may well be time to replace the tired, worn fabrics, the cushioning and springs of your family heirloom. Whether it’s classic, mid-century modern or contemporary a new fabric or leather can instantly lift the appearance and comfort of old furniture pieces. Why not consider one of the newer fabrics on offer to bring currency and rejuvenation to your favourite sofa, armchairs and dining chairs. These days interior designers often arrange such makeovers adding new life and vibrancy to otherwise classic designs and furniture styles.

Naturally at Wills we don’t just facilitate a change in the coverings alone. Worn out springs, wadding and foam or down cushioning will be replaced prior to recovering.

Now is a great time to browse the fabric house websites to see what’s new and what’s available. Imagine your older classic lounge suite refreshed and renewed.

At Wills Furniture, we work with leading fabric and textile suppliers. Here is a list for you to visit and browse to make your selection.

Each company has a website with extensive images of fabrics, textures, colours and designs available. Take the time to visit and browse their sites. There is a world of colour and texture available in a myriad range of fabrics. You and your designer or decorator can select the right fabric to suit your individual taste, and achieve the look, the style, the comfort you wish to achieve.

The Wills Collection provides a range of beautiful upholstered furniture, both traditional and contemporary, from which to choose. The Wills Furniture range is preferred by Interior Designers and Decorators. It offers real choice and distinctly different styles from which to make selections appropriate to particular projects.

Have you considered engaging an Interior Designer to assist you in redeveloping your home?

With the mini-lockdown now over, it’s a good time to consider engaging an Interior Designer to assist you in redecorating and refurbishing your home. Naturally you have decided to select your new lounge suite, occasional chairs, dining chairs and accessories from the fabulous Wills Collection, but the intermediate step is to ensure you have a well crafted Interior Design plan to work to, ensuring a fabulous result.

In determining and selecting your preferred Interior Designer, the choice you make may come through a personal reference. Or it may simply be admiration of the work done by a particular designer. Ultimately it’s a very important consideration – you are selecting a professional to renovate or redecorate your home.

Lisa Frederick, a US contributor to Houzz provided some insights in her article and we hope it can assist you in choosing a Designer who is right for you.

Interior designers do much more than make a home pretty — they turn it into a harmonious haven that’s uniquely yours.

When most people think about hiring an interior designer, they zero in on aesthetics: wall colours, window treatments, pillow patterns. But that’s just scratching the surface of what a designer can add to a home. These pros go beyond cosmetic concerns to ensure that a space feels harmonious through and through, from its floor plan and architectural envelope to the last nailhead, tassel and tuft.

What an interior designer does: A designer envisions, plans and outfits spaces in a way that makes them both beautiful and functional. He or she balances aesthetic considerations with structural planning to reflect the clients’ lifestyle, set the desired mood, complement the home’s architectural features, and ensure that less glamorous details (like electrical outlets and air vents) fit into the scheme. An interior designer also cultivates relationships with trusted artisans, vendors and others who execute the design.

When to hire one: You may have a clear vision for your home, but an interior designer can help you bring it to life while making sure it satisfies nitty-gritty considerations such as space planning. A trained eye and a creative mind-set allow for devising solutions that you might never have imagined, and attention to the tiniest details will transform your space into a haven that looks polished and complete.

What it will cost: Interior designers have various fee structures. They might charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of total project costs. You may also be asked to pay a retainer before work begins.

If you’re on a set budget, don’t assume that hiring a designer is beyond reach. Many will be happy to arrange a few hours of consulting or will help you source furnishings and decorative accents.

Where to find one: The directory of interior designers on houzz.com.au is a good starting place, where you can find designers in your area and beyond and view their portfolios.

If you spot a room you love when browsing Houzz photos and ideabooks, take note of the designer’s name. (You’ll see a link to professionals’ profiles in the lower-right corner of their photos.) Some designers will work with clients who are based in other cities, though travel time and expenses can add up.

Friends with fabulous houses are another likely source. You can also visit show houses and home tours to see which spaces strike your fancy.

Be sure the designer is a good match for your style. No two clients are alike, and good interior designers are nimble enough to hop from urban pied-à-terre to rustic farmhouse to beachside getaway without missing a beat. However, almost all of them have a fundamental aesthetic that remains consistent throughout their work. For example, if you want pure whites and pale neutrals, don’t choose a designer whose signature is bold colour palettes. When interviewing designers, look for parallels between their previous work and the design you want.

Collect samples. Even if you have trouble articulating your desired look, pictures of rooms you love can instantly give the designer a sense of what you crave. He or she will ask you about specific points of the design that resonate with you and use those as guidelines. Fabric swatches, paint chips, furniture catalogs and your own Houzz ideabooks are other good sources for showing items you like. On the flip side, pull examples of colours, motifs and furniture styles that turn you off, which can be equally helpful.

Decide in advance which pieces must stay. Not willing to get rid of your Biedermeier sideboard or your majolica collection? The process will go more smoothly if you share that information with your designer during the initial site visit and consultation. That way, he or she can plan around the items that you don’t want to give up.

Involve the designer as early as possible in the building process. If you’re remodelling or building from scratch, include the designer in the planning stages with your architect and contractor. This way, the pros involved will all be on the same page and can iron out any potential discrepancies — particularly those that involve the bones of a home, such as doorways, ceiling beams or interior columns. It’s one thing to reorient a window on paper; it’s another entirely to move it after installation.

Try to have all household members present at the outset. Having everyone’s input from the get-go helps to avoid potential conflicts down the road. If a spouse or loved one objects to a certain colour or reveals that he or she just can’t part with Granny’s antique dining table, it’s easiest to work out those issues right away.

Ask the designer to clarify billing procedures. Find out at the beginning when you’ll be charged and what for. In addition to the design itself, you may be billed for travel time, site visits, shopping, phone conversations and more. This way, you’ll be able to anticipate fairly closely what and when to pay.

Keep an open mind. It’s a rare client who loves 100 percent of a designer’s suggestions right off the bat. Your designer might recommend a piece of furniture or a wallpaper pattern that you’re iffy about, but don’t say no without giving the idea some time to sink in. Chances are that when you ask your designer why he or she chose it, and when you take a little time to live with it, you’ll appreciate the reason it works.

Look toward refreshing down the road. Even the best design doesn’t stay current forever. Ask your designer if tune-up visits in the future are an option, whether they involve simply swapping out a few accessories, reupholstering furniture or choosing new paint colours.

Or do you simply replace it with new furniture, fashioned traditionally by the same skilled craftspeople and artisans, using the tried and true methods and materials utilised in the original creation of your superb furniture.

Often it comes down to the real condition of the piece being considered. Is it merely cosmetic – fabric, springs, webbing or cushioning?
