My Mother's Green Sofa


My mother treated her custom green silk taffeta sofa, with the loving kindness.

 With all due respect, on this Mother's Day 2014, I am proud to embody my mom's passion for material + design. Notice how the shaped pillows matched the window treatments? Unfortunately for this post, the Phillip LaVerne "House of Chan" coffee table I sold quickly when liquidating the house, so it's missing from the picture. It wasn't by coinsidence that my mom's piano teacher, Belle Hammerschlag - the woman responsible for teaching my mother the finer things in life - has the exact same table in her apartment on East 86th St, NYC.  They each bought one 50 years ago.

The big question in my parents home aka 327 was "Is the occasion living room worthy?"  It was a special room that was reserved only for special occasions or company.  It took years of shopping for my mom to find exactly the right pieces to fill the room.  It wasn't a comfortable place to sit in.  Maybe it's because my brothers + I were constantly scolded for not fluffing the cushions on the sofa when we left the room.  Actually, I was the one that got the brunt of the criticism?

I quip now as comic relief, but I will share that even though my 90 year old mom had a stroke + is presently living in a nursing home with most days a prescribable case of dementia, she talks about furnishings all the time.  She loves chairs, cabinets, bedding and bookcases.  She wants to move the pieces she sees around + wants to buy them for her "apartment".   It's understandable since she can no longer stand or walk that she believes she can.  Since she living in a reality of her own imagination, it's comforting for her to know that I understand her world -
as only a daughter would.

If she saw + understood the next photo, it would probably kill her,
so I will share with you what remains of the sofa that the local charities wouldn't accept as a donation.

Thanks mom for everything.  Yes, everything.


If you are searching for the perfect "sofa" to last generations, give a call.

If you are searching for the house to host the memories of a lifetime, give a call.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone who ever had a mother.



OH don't forget to call your mother!

{sorry couldn't resist acting like one}.
