A few years ago I worked on a designer showcase home benefitting the Sacramento Junior League. This showcase was particularly challenging but I felt good about being involved. My man’s den was met with very good response.
The sofa above, from Haute House was one of the most sumptuous, high quality sofas I’ve ever used. If you look at the legs, you’ll see a cute little “bobbin” fringe.
This chair below is amazing, also from Haute House. The pillows and curtains were custom designs from Shiree Hanson Segerstrom, in a Fabricut faded red striped silk. Artillery basket filled with faux olive branches.
Floor lamp from Shears and Window. Side bar from Wroolie and Company. Mirror HomArt. Art Suzie Slaussen Thomas and Mildred Shoob.
The showcase house was somewhere around six thousand square feet located near Loehman’s Plaza in Sacramento. It featured some 30 design firms. The main challenge was that the owners and builder wanted all design time comped and the furniture offered to them at wholesale pricing. It was new construction and they utilized the designers for free services and treated them quite poorly.
The highlights were getting to know each of the other designers involved and meeting the lovely women at Sacramento Junior League. They made the whole experience worthwhile.
