Paula Grace Halewski, owner of Paula Grace Designs, Inc. recently shared with us some truly inspirational photography of homes she completed for her clients. Paula Grace is also the author of a blog on interior design, her projects and great finds. She has attended HCC University where she was able to meet the artists and craftsmen that make our pieces while also continuing to build her vast knowledge base on furniture. We are quite honored that she turned to Hickory Chair for special pieces for her clients.
Paula Grace shared with us that the home shown belongs to a busy couple with three very active kids. She shared that "they have an extensive art and antique collection that I married effortlessly with Hickory Chair furniture and furniture of my own design (two beautiful Curio Lamp Tables that are shown below)."
She adds that "the kitchen is completely custom designed and you can see how the Simon Bench just blends in as if it was always there."
"I used two swivel chairs in the sitting area of this great room, the Joseanne and Eton Swivel Chairs. Both turn to view the fireplace and television." says Paula Grace. "They haven’t added the television yet but I think that is because the family now enjoys curling up in front of their fireplace on the cold nights we have been having." Also shown is the Milo M2M Cocktail Table, Wakeley M2M Sofa, Charles Hassocks and the Auburn Round Ottoman.
"I have to say that the Joseanne is my ‘go to’ swivel chair because of its scale and clean lines. This is a very traditional design but we wanted to do a lot in the space we had so some smaller scale furniture was in order. The Joseanne fit that need perfectly and the Wakeley Sofa was custom sized to accommodate the available space."
Our artisans and craftsmen look to Paula Grace and other talented designers for pieces to make each day. It has been our honor to make pieces to order for 100 years! If you enjoyed Paula Grace's work, join us soon for Part II where we will showcase more of her beautiful projects!
