Chic Seagrass and Silk Pillows 6 Years Later

Six years ago, I met my client, Charles - from Pittsburgh, here in Naples. We hit it off immediately, and he wanted to start with remodeling his condo and using a rug as the basis for a color palette. I was delighted, since he owned a large collection of french antiques, acquired from working with designers Michael Greer and Ruben de Saavedra (New York) - We started the (living) room by anchoring the wall with a silk sofa...moving walls, and adding columns and crown mouldings. We've now moved the sofa into the middle of the room, breaking the length (33 + feet) and are adding a wall to wall seagrass over the existing tile floor. Also am restyling the sofa by cutting down the back and and adding down to the pillows... Stay tuned for pictures of the newly refreshed rooms ! DF *****
