Padded bench no 2. Tapicerowana ławka nr 2.


Thank you all for your comments! They do mean a lot to me, so thank you for taking time and commenting. :) :)
Today I want to show you something you already know but with different fabric colour. It does look softer and more romantic than the blue one, doesn't it?


I changed also the inside of the top cushion. It may look more flat but personally I think it looks a bit more natural. What do you think?


Due to my workshop's moving out and in I lost a good place to take photos, so please forgive me they are worse lately than before. Hope to find some solution soon.:)

Dziękuję wszystkim za komentarze!  Dużo dla mnie znaczą więc dziękuję za poświęcenie czasu. :) :)

Dziś pokazuję coś co już znacie, ale w innym kolorze drewna i materiału. Ławeczka chyba wygląda teraz romantyczniej niż w niebieskim kolorze, jak uważacie?

Oprócz kolorów zmieniłam też "wypełnienie" siedziska. Może jest bardziej płaskie, ale chyba wygląda bardziej naturalnie.

Przepraszam za jakość zdjęć. Niestety wraz z przeprowadzką pracowni utraciłam fajne miejsce do ich robienia, mam jednak nadzieję znaleźć wkrótce jakieś rozwiązanie tej sytuacji. :)

New chairs straight from my workshop. Nowe krzesła prosto z mojej pracowni.


The longer I work on miniatures the more I am convinced I love working on vintage models of furniture but the less I like to work on modern pieces....


Still there is always someone who asks me to work on modern miniatures - to be honest in slowly growing Polish world of miniatures and dollshouses, modern miniatures are much more popular or even trendy than "old" ones. In fact in our FB group there are maybe 2 people who are currently working on vintage period interiors while the rest who post their works there, work only on modern ones.
After being on blogland for 4 or 5 years it is quite a phenomenon for me. Not that I have something against it but as a fan of vintage period interiors in miniature, I find it interesting.


Back to the topic: I was asked by a friend to make these chairs. They look quite simple and so it was work in wood for them but the fabric covering was completely different thing....
To be honest my friend said she loved them but I...... well, let's say I told her to throw them away with no regrets if she wouldn't like them....


I still "fight" with fabric no matter what I try to do and how patient I am trying to be.  So my admiration for all of you who can make the fabric look pretty and neat still grows. :)



Anyway I hope you will like them. Not sure if I want to repeat making them again, though.

Nowoczesne krzesła z mojej pracowni powstały na zamówienie.

Przyznaję, że pomimo tego, że osoba zamawiająca jest z nich bardzo zadowolona, ja wciąż nie jestem pewna efektu. Choć sama drewniana konstrukcja jest bardzo prosta, to praca z obiciem tych krzeseł dała mi mocno w kość.

Mam nadzieję, że mimo to krzesła spodobają się Wam .
