CHRISTA PIRL FURNITURE
I am so excited to finally, officially launch my new venture in the world of design- Christa Pirl Furniture. Meant as a sister company to Christa Pirl Interiors, I have been itching to expand into furniture design for several years now, as I think many designers do. It seems a natural evolution, instead of selecting other people's furniture to go into projects, why not create your own pieces that fit into your own design vision? My favorite selections for clients have always been antique or vintage upholstered pieces that can be reinvented with a new bold, graphic (and often black&white) fabric. So I figured since I loved this part of my already fantastic interior design career so much, why not do it some more?
Of course I am not only looking to supply pieces to my own clients, but also to many others, people that share my love of unique vintage and antique furniture, and who see the potential in up-cycling furniture, and understand that while on the surface, a piece can appear as though its best days are behind it, yet often this is not the case. I am so happy to see the growing trend among my own Gen Xers as well as the Gen Ys to see the potential in old things, reusing these old things, and also their desire to create a home not piece-for-piece out of a catalog, but a unique mix of objects from different periods, styles and price-points. It makes for a much more dynamic world of interior design, a world that my new furniture business can fit into quite nicely, I believe.
So whether you are looking for a special piece of antique furniture or just a cute, inexpensive vintage chair, or wanting to restore grandma's chair you inherited, I would love for you to check out the new website, and feedback is always appreciated!
