Upholstery Sauvage

It’s amazing how a staple gun, some muslin, a few gallons of chalkboard paint, and a talent for rehabilitating discarded items can bring such beauty and charm to a 19th century Brooklyn brownstone. Interior and prop stylist Hilary Robertson likes to call her technique, of turning trash cans into chandeliers and stapling muslin to a pair of ersatz French chairs, “upholstery sauvage”. After all, one man’s trash is another’s treasure.
