Last night we were joined by guests and upholstery specialist Steven Rystephanuk for our All About Upholstery seminar. With nearly 15 years of experience, Steve was able to advice guests on the different styles of tufting, picking the perfect fabric, and the materials used for custom upholstery.
A beautiful example of some of Steve’s work.
Guests included local designers and design enthusiasts. Near the end of the seminar, guests were invited to ask Steve and Lison for advice on their custom furniture projects. Soon, Lison will be announcing her own line of custom furniture, but for now that is still under wraps!
We had a fantastic evening and we’re already looking forward to our next event, a Feng Shui Seminar with a local expert. Hope to see you there!
On Thursday, June 27th we had the privilege to host the Summer Leather Series at our boutique.
We had a wonderful evening! After mingling around the food and drinks, Austen Leeden of Dragonfly Leather began his presentation to an audience of interior designers, fabric upholsterers, and developers. Austen discussed the latest trending colours and style designs direct from their exclusive tanneries in Italy, Belgium and the UK. He focused his presentation on the many types and styles of leather, and which is correct for the specific application. You wouldn’t want to invest in leather to see it destroyed by over use! Austen described to our guests how to identify cheap, poor quality leather and what not to purchase to avoid costly mistakes. He also discussed the range of environmentally friendly and sustainable leathers we can supply, for customers looking for “green” furniture.
We at Lison Art Furniture are proud to be one of Dragonfly Leather’s official showroom representatives in Vancouver. Dragonfly leather is the official supplier of Lison Art Furniture, so you know that when you order a custom-built, leather chair you will be getting the best quality in the city.
