Online Exclusive: Refashioning furnishings
This month’s “Classic Beauty” feature story demonstrates that what’s old can be new again. Having outgrown their Ansley Park home, a young couple once again turned to designer Liz Williams to decorate their new Buckhead abode. Join us as we take a look at how Williams refashioned some of the couple’s existing pieces for their new home.
To finish off an empty wall in the couple’s former dining room, Williams created a beautiful vignette with a French sette from Parc Monceau and an arrangement of bontanical prints from Edgar-Reeves. In the new home, these items now greet guests in the foyer. Williams completed the new look with painted Italian sconces and an antique Khotan rug from Sullivan Fine Rugs.
An inherited table and chairs and a late 19th-century English buffet make a seamless transition into the new dining room. The hanging creamware plates from Interiors Market are now paired with diamond-patterened sconces from Parc Monceau.
This time in the living room, Williams places a pair of luxe Victoria Hagan wing chairs across from the sofa. She once again incorporates an antique Italian olive wood secretary from William Word Antiques. Other decorative elements the designer reuses include the coffee table, pink pillows and a stool that doubles as a side table. The draperies were lengthened with fresh fabric panels to fit the new space.
Williams reupholstered the Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman club chairs to match the accent pillows she brought over from the old family room.
Sticking with a few key pieces, Williams once again creates a dreamy master bedroom. She updates the Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman bed with linens from Gramcery Fine Linens & Furnishings. The bedside table and bench are from A. Tyner Antiques. Williams also uses the whimiscal lamps from Parc Monceau again.
