A room comes to life!
by designer Loralai Wester
My clients were recent transplants from Oregon to Oakmont. They moved in order to be closer to their children and grandchildren. They shared with me that during their move the U-Haul trailer they were traveling in was broken into and their most prized possessions stolen. They needed my help rebuilding a home that would reflect their personalities and provide a place to be with their loved ones.
Because we would be starting from scratch, it was important for me to find furnishings that effected my clients on a personal level. Two sentimental item that did survive the trip from Oregon were a couple of beautiful rugs. These provided a great foundation for us to re-build from. We worked together to choose items that would make my clients feel comfortable in their new home.
The Success Story
The first item my clients fell in love with was a 2016 Stickley Collectors TV Console. It’s inlay and craftsman details were a great focal point for the family room. We chose a large Century sofa in a soft neutral linen fabric with brightly colored pillows that we would find the perfect art work to compliment. A Flexsteel swivel glider rounded out the seating for a room the whole family could enjoy. A set of stacking tables were a great addition to the room which could be used as TV trays for when the grandchildren visited. A Nichols and Stone dining set paired with a Stickley sideboard was just what we needed to link the two rooms together and provide a place for future family meals.
Share This Project On
My husband and I were fortunate to be greeted by Loralai Wester when we first came into Pedersen’s. We told her what we needed and were happy to find exactly what we were looking for. She added a few things that made our rooms really come alive. The furniture is great quality and appearance. We would recommend Loralai and Pedersen’s to anyone looking for furniture.
