Etsy Sources for Custom Upholstery

A bunch of you have asked me on Instagram where I got my new ottoman, which replaced our glass coffee table a.k.a. “The Baby Guillotine”. I looked high and low for a  zebra cowhide ottoman in the size I needed for my long, narrow living room and struck out.  And the designer grade custom items I was pricing out were a fortune.  So I turned to Etsy (as I do quite a lot when looking for custom goods that don’t break the bank). I had one made for me by the shop 1801FurnitureCo. and it came out perfect!

(Oliver would NOT move for this picture- his eyes are saying “go ahead lady, try to get me off this sofa”)

I chose cowhide for the natural toughness and durability and also water-repellent qualities.  Sippy cups have leaks water all over this baby a dozen times and it’s fine! My style is listed here.

You can work with them to create a piece all your own- in a variety of hides (like this brindle below), wood finishes and styles any size you need.

In another area of the living room is the upholstered bench/ toybox I had made by one of my other favorite Etsy vendors, LivenUP Design.  I sent them the fabric of my choice and they created this custom sized piece perfect for storing Henry’s toys and providing extra seating.

He’s obsessed with trying to get in it.

We then had this one made for a client’s twin daughters room as well in this amazing fabric:

And right now they are making some extra long x-benches for our new office in this great Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa abstract pattern fabric.  CAN. NOT. WAIT.

More offerings from them we order up for clients– basic x-benches….

Their daybeds are to DIE for…

il_570xN.1097323574_92g4

I am obsessed with using this exact one in Henry’s big boy room…

il_570xN.1174556595_go3d

I love this simple upholstered coffee table— another safe option for wobbly toddlers!

They also make amazing grasscloth wrapped furniture.  We’ve had a console like this made for a client… and now are having a desk made for another!

I also love these side tables/ nightstands.

And this dresser.  Wrap something in grasscloth and chances are I will buy it.

A lot of people ask me where I get my custom drapes made– and while that is not a source I am willing to share (I have to keep SOME things for myself and my clients)- Lynne Chalk’s shop sells amazing designer fabric draperies and roman shades.

This Schumacher fabric is an all time favorite– as drapes, they slay me.

Some graphic patterned roman shades (left and right) with and without trim.

Some super dramatic panels in an amazing Mary McDonald print with wide patterned tape.

One of my other favorite fabrics from Quadrille as a roman shade.

Katie Ridder’s Beetlecat sure makes adorable drapes for a little boys room!

She also makes custom cushions (for built ins or the like) and pillows as well.

I have pillows made of the KW fabric in the office now and this Duralee/ John Robshaw is a fave too.

il_570xN.966118562_l7fbil_570xN.869633321_577g

Need more custom pillow options? SparkModern is my go-to.  A great selection of fabrics, good pricing and quality construction make them a winner. I also love the collections she puts together making pairing pillow patterns easy.

il_570xN.977559000_dqh5

Hard to find fabrics like Lisa Fine are available and John Robshaw.

il_570xN.1110158102_6phiil_570xN.1204508909_5pw8

I love this graphic Quadrille for a boys room.

There are some outdoor pillow options (Peter Dunham- left and right- I have these in my sunroom) too. Make sure the fillers you buy are outdoor if you in fact plan on using them outside.

il_570xN.975541922_fh5jil_570xN.615009640_ehpr

MotifPillows offers up a great mix of fabrics and price points too- and shows great pairings in their photos.

This blush is darling!

il_570xN.1033316898_kbjm

And I love this little floral bohemian.

il_570xN.1177110625_gr8n

These bright Tulu pillows are so happy!

il_570xN.1142045411_g4w4

Another pair I think would be darling in a big boy room (can you tell I have that on my mind??)

I hope that these sources help you take your space to the next level or fill a tricky niche that needs something custom!
