I love the fabric suggestions. I have a question about recovering a sofa - I have a Danish teak sofa and chair with black faux leather that I need to replace (it is worn and damaged). I would like to lighten the color and go with a neutral linen. Do you think that this will still suit the style of the furniture? I want to keep the integrity of the design and update it with something durable for family life...
Yes - I think that a linen in a neutral shade is a perfect upholstery choice for your style of sofa. It would look especially nice in a nubby linen or one with a lot of texture that compliments the clean lines that are so common in Danish teak furniture.
Regarding the painting above your bed: do you have an artist in mind for the commission?
I love the work of New York artist, Eric Beare, who has worked with Martha Stewart Living Magazine on several projects in the past. Most recently, he created the background for my bonsai Christmas tree ("Uncommon Visions") in the December issue. I would love to commission a piece by Eric that is similar in style to the work of Franz Klein.
