City Girl Arts specializes in remaking vintage and antique pieces with saturated paint treatments and modern, vibrant fabrics. I offer wood furniture and upholstered seating pieces that have innate character, quality, and age. Some are transformed by me with paint or upholstery and offered here, a select amazing few are offered as-found, and some are for me to customize for you.
My upholstered pieces frequently feature techniques normally found in antique furniture: coil springs hand-tied eight ways, hand-stitched edges and foundations, and horsehair stuffing. I love to restore a piece to its original beauty, with a joyful jolt of modern through fabrics and paint.
I keep an inventory of pieces waiting to be transformed as well as finished pieces. Feel free to talk with me about your desire for a statement piece of furniture.
