With the end of March fast approaching, we can hardly believe that Address Assembly 2017 is just under 2 months away!! We are so excited for this year’s event, as the show has outgrown the Waterfall building, we’re so excited about the new venue, the Ellis Building at 1024 Main St. This historic venue is bound to make for an exciting change of atmosphere and we can’t wait to see everyone at this year’s show!
Last year the exhibitors pulled out the big guns and displayed some inspiring work. One of our favourite pieces was a collaboration with one of us favourite local furniture designer and maker, Nicholas Purcell. Inspiration for the piece was drawn from the iconic Adrian Pearsall, who is known for pushing the envelope of design with his long and low sofas during the mid-century Atomic Age.
The “Reef” sofa designed by Nicholas needed no introduction standing at 13’6” wide with the extended frame’s end table functionality and built-in drawers on both sides. It was a pleasure collaborating on the upholstery for this mid-century project. The cushions were made with latex foam and cut to precision achieving the perfect angle for the design of the frame. A single row of buttons paired with a show stopping fabric selection from Fabricut was the perfect finishing touch. Nicholas truly embodied the heart of go big or go home with this mid-century design!
And the admiration for this piece even inspired one of our clients who were seeking a custom sofa that would evoke an East-West design style they had yet to see in any showroom.
Interior designer and decorator Navin and Seema Ramani were a pleasure to work with.
Navin has a keen eye for proportion, detail, and knows a great deal about furniture. His expertise paired with Seema’s vast knowledge of textiles made for an engaging design process on this project.
The walnut mid-century sofa is more than meets the eye. With its removable arms for conversion into a day bed and 100% natural latex foam, this custom sofa perfectly addressed both sustainability and style.
Stay tuned for our next feature on Address Assembly 2017, we’re going to take a trip down memory lane with Celina and get a glimpse into her creative process. But first, check back with us next week for the story behind one of our favourite revamp projects from 2016!
