Grant Trick  Custom upholstered furniture + drapery to the trade

I could (and probably should) send our quilting out.. it would be quicker and cheaper.. but there’s just something so good about the old way... slightly imperfect, hand guided goodness. The computerized machines with plastic thread just aren’t the same. I “inherited” this machine from our cutter, David (who just turned 70) when he closed his workroom a couple years ago and came to work with us. He got it in the early 80’s and guilted me into taking it. Glad he did. #customsofa #customupholstery #upholstery #workroom #interiordesign #interiors

Congratulations to @jeffreydungan on the publication of your amazing book. There aren’t enough good things I can say about this guy... a true, ride-or-die friend, a mentor, rockstar architect and all around superhero. Oh, and one of the main reasons I decided to set up shop in Birmingham and give it a go... and oh what places we’ve gone. Love ya Jeff. You’re one in a million.❤️

In case this looks easy, it’s not. Luckily @caseywl showed up just as I was contemplating a job at McDonalds and saved the day. #customupholstery #banquette #leatherfurniture #customsofa #interiordesign #upholstery #interiors #workout #workroom

“When you’re an architect or designer, you have so many different ideas of what home is and the feeling you’re trying to communicate,” says Alabama architect @jeffreydungan, who has spent his 25-year career discerning the needs of others but finally did enough soul-searching to accommodate his own. “You have to ask yourself, ‘What do you want?’; for me it was a self-realization that surprised me.” His dream home turned out to be a light-filled aerie overlooking Birmingham, where he could experiment with bold choices while paying homage to the city’s industrial beginnings. Though the house is nestled on the slopes of Red Mountain, named for its rich iron-ore deposits and the place where many of the region’s steel industrialists once dwelled, the historical resonance runs deeper than the three-bedroom structure’s geographical footprint. As a nod to Birmingham’s 19th-century mining past, Dungan incorporated steel doors and fluted glass, brass and bronze finishes that would patina over time, and a moody palette that references blacksmiths and iron forges. But far from a gloomy den—or any cookie-cutter gracious Southern stereotypes—the house is bright and breezy, not least in the living room, pictured here, where whitewashed wood and concrete pavers by @firerock_inc meet sculpturally carved walls that reveal light through negative space.
