Applique'

The age old decorating problem: I love this image - but I don't like any of the ground colors it comes on or it just doesn't seem special enough...

Answer: Applique'

My client, Randy Patton of Patton Design Studio in Rancho Mirage, CA found an embroidered image that he liked for a chair back - but the image was simply part of a repeat - rows of the image with a smaller image offset between the rows. The fabric is from the Larson showroom.

To arrive at a more customized look, the images were cut from the original ground fabric, secured onto a new Rogers & Goffigon silk background, and then transitioned using a contrasting yet pale color that married the two materials and provided a lovely emphasis to the medallion.
