Ooh La La

The corset, yes..total torture but so glamorous and sexy. It is the inspiration for what has to be one of my favorite designs! This detail is the final piece to finish our client's dining room. Nancy and I are having two dining room end chairs made in chocolate silk tafetta with lace up corset stringing in smokey amethyst down the back of the chairs to resemble detailing of a couture gown. Ooh la la.
