My Tufted Pieces--Friday

I am so sad that this is a short blogging week because I could talk for weeks about my love of tufting.  There are many different types of tufting.  The detailed version is called diamond tufting and takes a lot of time and talent.  The banquet in my kitchen is diamond tufted and is one of my favorite things in our house (aside from the hubby and kids, of course ;) )  We had a bare 15 foot banquet forever and when I finally decided what I wanted, it was game on!  I used a faux leather and had my fabulous lady go to work!  It took a while but the results are exactly what I was looking for...
Comfy and great to look at!  We could sit here for days!  My boys even bring their blankets in and lie down to watch TV. We are very informal people but love to entertain so this also acts as our dining room, even though it is actually IN the kitchen.
The sofa in my den is also tufted, just not the deep tufting...
I simply love tufting.  Some can take it, some can leave it.  Which do you prefer?


  1. I love it too, but I like how you've done it just on the back. I think on seating it could get messy. Your banquette is to die for!!! I'm in love. It's going in my pinterest file!
