Design in progress... Part 2

Over the holiday season, I took some time off to work on home projects. I managed to finish roman shades for the living room (which you can see in the background), drapes for the dining room and re-upholstered the love seat. 

Actually, the love seat received a full face lift, including some reconstructive surgery. My partner (Lorin Kinsel) and I stripped off the old fabric, batting and foam. He rebuilt the frame to square off the corners and built a new base. (It used to have plain tapered legs.)  Along with the upholstery work, we redesigned and I fabricated new cushions, which the cats are very happy with. 

FYI, the beautiful end table is an original design from Lorin Kinsel Furniture. You can see more of his beautiful furniture at He is currently working on a new coffee table and another end table for the room. I love when he prototypes.
