Here’s something I love, seeing our upholstery work being enjoyed in our clients home!

The cost of reupholstery work (labour plus materials) is often the same as buying a new mid priced piece, so why reupholster?

A few reasons stand out:

- Sentimental value
- High quality furniture ( ie better than a new mass produced piece) that would cost more to replace
- Antique/vintage style that you can’t find anymore or...
- SCALE!

This last reason was the case for @jlhilde , this chair fit perfectly in their space with the perfect proportions for kid cuddling while the slim arms keep it from gobbling up space in the room.

Definitely worth keeping, but ready for a brand new look. It’s got all the great parts of a new chair (updated style, improved comfort) with all the great parts of a beloved fave ✨

Circles circles circles...I’ve been circle obsessed for a few years now and have no idea why. Did it start with my circular brass hanging planter design? I’m really not sure but I’m constantly drawing them and drawn to them, so this pic by @skaynedesigns is really “hitting the spot” for me 🙃😉 #bedroominspo #californialiving

Another new design sneak peek! I’ve been thinking a lot about the uniqueness of African textiles, and how to best honour the time and skill that goes into every piece. Each panel of mudcloth is only approx 40” x 60”, give or take, it does NOT come on a roll like most fabric. Since these are antique textiles there are always holes/stains that I need to work around, it’s time consuming and completely different from working with most fabric. Patchwork designs ensure maximum flexibility in cutting the fabric, allowing me to waste almost none of this precious material. The bonus: you get two beautiful patterns in one pillow! #handmadehome #madeinla #africanmudcloth #indigofabric #cotedivoire #handwoventextiles

2021 is a year of launching SO many new products, and first on the list is a big one, literally! This custom tufted cushion we created for Tanya from @houseofsixinteriors is just over 10ft long! It’s made of a rustic ticking stripe linen with 40 brown velvet buttons, each one hand made and then hand tufted. We’re now offering this style of cushion in 5 lengths and 7 depths with a bunch of different button colours. As always we can also create a totally custom version in any colour combo and shape you can dream up! https://www.norwegianwoodonline.com/collections/tufted-cushions

Sometimes I design something then second guess it...sometimes I design something then get so caught up on sewing orders that I don’t find the time to photograph it. Sometimes BOTH of those things happen, like with these two pillows. Then a super stylish friend of mine came to visit in February and was in love with these pillows, which reminded me that this fabric IS indeed amazing. Moral of the story: working from home, alone, with no input from other creatives is tough. I’ve been doing it for five years now, and it’s still tough.
.

One of the things that got put on hold for me due to Covid-19 was getting a separate studio space from my home. This was obviously a blessing in many ways (lower overhead) but I was REALLY ready to move forward on that. I’m not dwelling on it though, it will happen when the time is right. For now I’m working on the things I CAN work on, which is photographing all the designs that have been languishing unseen in my studio. One of the gifts of this pandemic (for me) has been focus. With fewer options of things to work on it somehow becomes much more clear what I NEED to work on. Small victories people...GET ‘EM WHERE YOU CAN! 💪🏼 #handmadehome #modernhomedecor #madeinla #losangelesdesigner #losangelesinteriordesigner @ Los Angeles, California

Face masks are officially restocked! 100% of the proceeds from these masks are going to our talented production partner Ray!

Ray now sews all our headboard cushions, giving Angie precious time to work on leather straps, new designs, photography, paperwork etc, but he ALSO runs an upholstery shop which is now closed during "Shelter in Place". His main income is now from the work he does for Norwegian Wood, so these masks will help him continue his business. All materials used to make this mask are donated by NW, so 100% of the profits after the cost of shipping will go directly to Ray.

It’s hump day! We’re halfway through the week people, we got this! I just received a brand new roll of this delicious turmeric linen (seen here on one of our headboards at @jthposada ) and I keep looking at it and thinking I should make something else out of it. I’m thinking some kind of bolster pillow, but I’ve also been thinking of making some limited edition blankets again...too many ideas! #headboards #wallmountedheadboard #bedroomdecor #bedroominspo #jthposada #arizona

The unbleached linen version of my headboard continues to be the most popular and I 100% understand why...it’s insanely versatile. @leloboho used it in this room design with black straps and black hardware for a cozy monochromatic look ✨#bedroomideas #bedroominspo #headboards #headboardideas

Are you following along with all the @oneroomchallenge people? @undecorated_home (whose deck with my planters is pictured here) is doing a bathroom makeover that’s looking SO good, and @hommeboys are doing a master bedroom suite makeover (plus hallway) that will make your eyes pop out of your head! ORC time is always so inspiring, I’m hoping one day I’ll be able to find the time to do it myself! #oneroomchallenge #deckinspo #hangjngplants #hangingplanter

One of our pillows out in the wild at the beautiful @acme5yuccavalley ✨ I make a lot of limited edition pillows for boutiques, and as a previous store owner myself I have a ton of respect for the work that goes into running a brick and mortar shop. The internet is great, but nothing can compare to the immersive experience of spending time in a beautifully curated store. Support your local indie boutiques friends!

Hands up for who appreciates a great guest room? Whenever I travel to Canada to visit friends/family I’m always so grateful for the people who let me crash at their houses, and how cute they make their guest rooms. It’s something I’ve tried to do in my own home now as well (when you live in Cali you get a lot of guests!) Kate from @kgmilke clearly has the same idea, look how welcoming she’s made this guest room, featuring one of our headboards! I love how she added the little tray of treats for her guests too, I need to up my game! What’s your fave way to welcome guests when you have them? I’d love to hear more tips and tricks! #guestroom #guestroomdecor #welcominghome #headboards

This room by @hartman_haus featuring one of our headboards has me pausing to think about the power of simplicity and texture. One of my biggest problems as a designer is that I truly love it all. I love maximalist print covered rooms (matching wallpaper and textiles?! SIGN ME UP), I love sweet cottages covered in quilts and I love minimalist modern spaces too. The quiet spaces don’t grab my eye as easily, so I need to take a little extra moment to appreciate them, because they’re just as wonderful ✨ #minimalisthome #doingneutralright #bedroomideas

Most of you are heading into fall, but Sept is a crazy hot month here in SoCal. I was doing some reno stuff yesterday and I’m pretty sure I was painting with a mix of 95% paint 5% sweat droplets. My friend Megan from @undecorated_home (whose deck this is) lives in Wisconsin, which has similar weather to where I grew up (Manitoba). She recently told me that she leaves her white hanging planters hanging outside all year round and they have no signs of rust at all. You know how happy that made me!? SUPER HAPPY! It’s always my goal to provide the best quality product possible, and it’s great to know that the things I make are doing their job 💪🏼 #outdoorspaces #deckdesign #hangingplants #hangingplanter

Such a great example of texture being the star! These lumbars are no longer available (the limited edition beauty of handmade textiles) but I’m thinking I should create something similar soon, because this room by @alexandradiguglielmo.interiors is giving me some very cozy winter white vibes #monochromehome #neutraldecor #doingneutralright

Happy Monday everyone! I had a great weekend working on home renos (check out the “Dining Room” tab on my insta for the most recent vids) but now I’m back to work sewing headboards for all you lovely people! Did you guys know I have a section of “limited edition” headboards using really unique fabrics like this Indigo Mudcloth? I made this one for @natasha.schue a few months ago and I am LOVING it against this wallcolour, it’s a stroke of genius! #bedroomideas #headboards #headboarddesign #indigodye #ihavethisthingwithtextiles

I’m about to ship out another black linen headboard to a client and was reminded of the first black one I ever made, now in the home of @undecorated_home 🙌🏼 Adding a hit of black to a room does something magical that always seems right to me!

You know who loves a process pic? THIS GIRL! 💪🏼 Officially done with scraping/steaming wallpaper glue in this house (if you’ve been following in stories you’ll know how long I’ve been doing this). When we bought this house almost exactly 2yrs ago there was wallpaper in all four bedrooms, one bathroom, the kitchen and this room. All the rooms except the bathroom have vaulted ceilings. Some rooms (like my office) were coyly easy to strip, while this room...I honestly think I’ve spent at least 20-30 working hours stripping glue and paper off these walls and repairing them...and I think it’s a low estimate. Tomorrow ....I paint! (and install the baseboards that have been sitting in the garage for a year) 🙌🏼😭✨ #diyreno #celebratetheprocess #celebrateprogress #slowandsteady #californialiving #homereno #woodceiling #californiaredwood
