One of the little details of our home that made me fall in love with it is the large bay window seat in the living room:
it would look awful with the drapes from our old dining room that I plan to hang on either side of the window so the wimpy window cushion definitely has to go. What would I like to replace it with? A French mattress-style cushion like in Lauren Liess’ to-die-for window seat from the 2011 DC Design House:
and Pottery Barn, which sells a French mattress-style Upholstered Daybed Mattress:
As far as getting a custom sized French mattress-style cushion made, I’ll soon find out how hard it is to find someone who can make one. I’ve read that designers often have them made by small mattress companies rather than upholsterers but that sounds like $$$ to me. My plan is to start by talking to some local upholsterers and go from there – I’ll let you know what happens along the way. Of course, if you have any personal experience or advice, please share!
