Bespoke Bench

Good morning design devotess! You’re in for a treat this morning. I’ve asked one of IBB’s designers, Brandy Scott, to blog for us & share some behind the scenes details from one of our recent projects out at Craig Ranch.

I’m so excited to post my first blog with our IBB Design Fine Furnishings followers! Today I want to share one of my favorite recent projects, a custom bench we created for a luxury model townhome in Craig Ranch. You may have seen Shay post it snapshot it on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.

Add some va va voom to your foyer! A bench in the entry is welcoming and sets the design tone for your home. This piece started with Beth and Shay’s vision for a high back bench that was an updated take on a wing chair. We discussed elements of the furniture that we liked best such as straight sides to the wings and the bottom seat deck off the floor with tapered legs to make the bench feel lighter. A single seat cushion and tight back added to its streamlined effect.

Deciding on the correct proportions was important to making the bench an eye catcher! We turned up the volume with an exaggerated seat back height and an overall width that ensured we could avoid seams on the back. To execute the design I did a quick sketch so we could see how all the elements came together and for our fabricator’s reference.

Finally, the finishing details elevate this piece to the next level! A bold stripe in a tone on tone grey and white coordinates with the overall color palette in the house and polished chrome nail heads reinforce the lines of bench. The black and white art surrounding the bench really makes it pop.

So whether it’s a one of kind custom piece designed just for you or a ready made bench, consider seating to welcome your guests to your home with style!

Sneak Peek: Craig Ranch project 2

Happy Saturday design lovers! Remember the Craig Ranch project I showed you a few weeks ago? Well, today’s sneak peek is a 2nd installation we completed for Craig International at the Residences at Grand Lodge out in Craig Ranch. The home sits on the TPC golf course & the views it boasts are amazing! This home seemed to be the favorite amongst the crowd at a recent party out there hosted by Paulette Green. The developer asked that this home be more transitional in design & I must say we were very pleased at how the project turned out.

Family room (photo by nathanielphoto.com) I love the fresh feel & the pops of color. Notice the designer details like the fabric on the leading edge of the draperies. The fabric is one of my favorites from my fabulous friend Tobi Fairley’s collection thru Hickory Chair.

You’ll be able to see more photos from this project very soon! It’s going to be featured in GrandLuxe magazine’s June Home issue!
