Adelaide Vaughan Furniture

Isn’t it intriguing how we tuck little visual and auditory memories into our brains and they pop out again from time to time without us really being startled by them?  My grandmother’s home was a visual treasure trove to me as a child, although I wasn’t really aware of it at the time. 

So, when I set out to design upholstered seating that was comfortable, well-scaled, and suited to more traditional homes, I dove into those visual memories for inspiration.  I also had clients who needed seating that was more adaptable to assorted spaces than the oversized chairs and sofas that have dominated the market for decades.  The first piece that emerged was the scallop-skirted small club chair named Adelaide after my grandmother Adelaide B. Davidson. 

Since its inception the Adelaide Vaughan  line has grown to six chairs, one chaise, and several ottomans. Everything is custom made, so design details can easily be tweaked and sizes shifted slightly to suit the needs of the customer.  The inspiration for each piece has been something historical….a chair purchased at an antique fair in France or an image of a great chair from the late nineteenth century.  My pieces integrate well in many settings from living rooms to bedrooms.

Enjoy perusing the furniture section of our website for ideas and details.  Or pick up a copy of the March/April issue of Victoria Magazine where you will find a feature article on Adelaide Vaughan Furniture. I am delighted to share these pieces with you!
