I grew up in a small town with one fabric store, Hart’s Fabrics on Plumas Street. Near the register in Hart’s was an old iron claw foot tub that was filled with buttons. Hundreds of thousands of buttons in every style, shape, and color imaginable. When I was really small I would crawl into the tub and bury myself in the buttons. As I got older I was content to select 5-10 of the prettiest buttons for purchase. I am sure that this led to A Love of Buttons and Tufted Furniture.
A Love of Buttons and Tufted Furniture
This is definitely a statement piece. Both in color and in form.
A tufted headboard on a grand scale that provides a fresh, modern twist on a classic design.
But this true original is so inviting.
A traditional hand tied couch in cool serene blue.
Another classic couch enlivened by vivid accessories.
This is a wonderful grouping with an oversized tufted ottoman.

I haven’t found my perfect piece yet, so I will be content to sift through my button collection.
