Tiger Lily’s is custom. That is our identity. We build ground up, all wood. There are short cuts to getting what you want in life and they start with big box retailers. Big Box we are not. Big Box uses pressed cardboard, filament. Tiger Lily’s uses wood. I know I know, it sounds repetitive but it goes back to what we believe in and what we stand for.
Tiger Lily’s is quality. We know the name of everyone who works in our workroom, http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com. We know their family. We know their life story, where they came from and what they dream for their children. That is a wonderful thing.
The frame of this settee was built for a friend of mine. Lindsey Boyd Weiber of the Laundress. http://www.thelaundress.com. Lindsey is incredible talented and creative person. She is the mother of one and soon to be two. This banquet is for her dining table.
To get a tight clean finish, the seat is upholstered first in muslin and pulled and tightened through the frame.
Fully upholstered the finished piece is a great and durable seating arrangement for a oval shaped table. The patten leather is easy to clean and the decorative stitch adds a small element of surprise and detail that takes this piece from catalog to custom.I like to end blogs in a quote. I like this from Gerald Ford, “Tell the truth, work hard, and come to dinner on time.”
