My maternal grandmother - aka Beatrice aka Nana - though long since passed away has a strong presence in my life and home. The one that whenever I would walk into her home on Cape Cod she would be sitting in, eating potato chips and drinking her glass of sherry in the late afternoon ... is in my living room.Hannah loved the potato chip story, recognized my attachment, and once seeing my home and style, gently encouraged me to consider a more contemporary fabric and facelift.Hannah was amazing from start to finish. She spent a few hours with me helping to select a gorgeous and sturdy fabric (one of her many talents and trainings) that while more modern, retains the elegance of the chair, matches our color schemes, as well as accounts for the impact of a working household with a 4 year old’s sticky hands. Her craftsmanship and attention to detail on the reupholstering itself is phenomenal. Additionally she made both cosmetic and structural touchups to the woodframe, added details (like buttons) to the chair, and reupholstered the matching stool without my asking. The finished project is now not just a living memorial to Nana, it is a beautiful compliment to our home, and one of our nicest pieces of furniture.
Hannah made a pair of drapes that absolutely transform the living room. The style she suggested — back tab — makes for a tidy pleat the the top. The effect is crisp but informal. She was great with fabric swatching and selection, and she certainly worked with the color and style already in place. We’re delighted.
