For those of you that don’t know, Upgraded Living is a wonderful magazine full of our North State’s local treasures. While each issue never fails to bring interesting articles and beautiful photography, my favorite page in the current August issue has to be on page 25… slightly biased maybe.
Above is the photograph featured in the issue. Now they say “a pictures worth a thousand words” – all good ones we hope! – but I can’t help going into a little bit of detail about 3 of the items photographed here...
Upholstered Wing Bed in Perth Graphite with small nickel nailhead.
This style is available in a twin, queen, king, or cal king size, and can be upholstered in countless fabrics or leathers. Nail heads are also an optional addition in different finishes and sizes. It is also a platform design, so you don’t need a boxspring, just a same size mattress. What I love about this piece is twofold: it is not only handcrafted in the USA (North Carolina to be precise) but customizable to your own personal style. It’s the silhouette of the bed you are really looking for – everything from there is up to you. Nap time!
Upholstered Tufted Bench in Charcoal Taupe.
This bench has been calling my name since day one… I just need a reason to buy it! It comes as shown in the charcoal taupe fabric, but the weathered wood base and upholstered seat complement each other so nicely, and translate well amongst warm and cool colors. The tufting on the seat and carving along the wood base only adds to its charming character.
"Confetti" by local artist, Ilona Cronan
This particular painting was done by a local Chico artist and friend, Ilona Cronan. We have many of her works of art throughout the showroom, colorful paintings on gallery canvas, but Ilona also does custom works – nature, abstracts, portraits of family or pets, you name it! If your walls need a little love or you are looking for a wonderful gift idea, we highly recommended Ilona. We are sure you’ll not only love your painting, but also your experience working with such a kind and warm hearted woman. Please call us (895.1038) for more information on Ilona's art and how to reach her.
