MPF Conservation restores, conserves, and preserves upholstered objects in their studio in Portland Oregon; this page documents draperies, and the occasional upholstered wall or ceiling.
Above, draperies made to match client’s furnishings, as well as an upholstered cornice, left, built to match a client’s drapes.
Draperies shown left run throughout the ground floor of an Ashland Oregon ranch house. Fabric is a linen toile de Jouy from Brunschwig & Fils.
Our client built a new home in the mountains of Northern California which included a sound-proof media room wiht an elaborate entertainment center. MPFC made draperies, and also covered the ceiling, walls and speaker covers with fabric! A difficult and time-consuming project!
Bedroom Canopy Draperies
Our client built a new home in the mountains of Northern California. The Master Bedroom’s bed set into an alcove in the wall with built-in drawers on either side and a highly detailed upholstered canopy overhead.
MPFC upholstered the canopy, and created the drapery swags which tied along the inset bed. Elaborate tie-backs with sumptuous embraces were created with huge decorative tassels terminating the embrace, image four above.
Fabrics are from Bergamo; decorativ etrims and embrace from Scalamandre. These created the draperies and lovely tumble of custom-designed bejeweled pillows! To see the matching pillows, visit our Pillows page.
Above and below, draperies for the Superintendent’s home.
Crater Lake Science and Learning Center Draperies
Custom draperies made to match in the spirit of the time period of the historic Imperial Monterey Furniture, shown above. We chose chunky iron rings with which to hang the colorful fabric on the wrought iron drapery rod and transit without the use of modern mechanisms. Even the windows in the doors had curtains! Fabric from Justin David. To see the matching pillows, visit our Pillows page.
