Making A Statement




I was recently asked to select some fabrics for some chairs which needed recovering at the new Emporium Hotel in Brisbane. Previously these chairs were covered in a matt silver pvc which I personally didn't think made much of an impact. The hotel's signature colour is red so I selected this gorgeous red zig zag fabric and what a statement it makes as you walk into the bar. I have now been asked to also select a new fabric for the curtain in the background which I am currently in the process of doing and there is possibly some very exciting things hapenning in the pipeline which I can't talk about at the moment but I should be able to announce something within the next month or so!!! Shh for now though!!
