MPF Conservation restores, conserves, and preserves upholstered objects in their studio in Portland Oregon. This page documents the pillows, bolsters, draperies, and even the occasional upholstered wall or ceiling.
Draperies shown left run throughout the ground floor of an Ashland ranch house. They are made of linen toile de Jouy from Brunschwig & Fils.
Below, draperies made to match client’s furnishings, as well as an upholstered cornice we built, below left, to match a client’s drapes.
Our client built a new home in the mountains of California with an elaborate entertainment center. MPFC made draperies, and also covered the ceiling, walls and speaker covers were fabric! A difficult and time-consuming project!
Bedroom Canopy Draperies
Our client built a new home in the mountains of California. The bed set into the wall with built-in drawers on either side and a canopy overhead.
MPFC upholstered the canopy, and created the drapery swags which tied along the inset bed. Elaborate tie-backs were created with huge tassels, image four above.
Fabrics are from Bergamo. These created the draperies and lovely tumble of custom-designed bejeweled pillows! To see the matching pillows, visit our Pillows page.
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. Even the windows in the doors had curtains! Fabric from Justin David. To see the matching pillows, visit our Pillows page.
