Jill Lucas Sofa for my Shabby Chic House......

I was a very reluctant subscriber to FaceBook some time ago and only use it for contact with miniature friends, artisans and stockists really. It had come to my notice that many very talented artisans were only using FB to display and sell their individual items and my most recent purchase has made my joining more than worthwhile.
This absolutely fabulous sofa by Jill Lucas.
 I have been looking for a long while for a sofa for my shabby chic house that I made to compliment my newly decorated living room. Then I saw some of Jill's pieces on FB and contacted her with regards to a one off commission piece with some lovely fabric I bought off Ebay. These collections of remnants are perfect for someone like me who has trouble mixing and matching colours/patterns. These were quite pricey but I have used them in the beach hut too and they are a very nice quality. 
 I knew exactly how I wanted it to look and what size it needed to be to fit in what is quite a small scene. As you can see Jill did a fantastic job and the sofa far surpassed my expectations. The quality of her work is marvellous and I am soooo pleased with it. 
 As you can see it fits the room perfectly and is certainly chic and not at all shabby!!
 With the left over material Jill kindly made me some cushions, again the quality is superb.
I decided to use these in the upstairs bedroom. 
 No shabby bedroom should have less than five cushions!!
This project is really approaching the finish line now. I am hoping to have a few bits and bobs left over from the beach hut to accessorise a gap or two.
Jill's pieces have given the whole house an extra special finishing touch so glad I gave in and joined FB!!!


  1. I love it! She did a fantastic job. The fabric is wonderful in your setting.

  2. That really is a lovely sofa and perfect for the room! I was admiring it FB the other day! I bought the lovely green one she posted pics of today! I cant wait for it to arrive!

  3. Facebook is somewhere I would never have considered when looking for minis but you struck lucky there. It's a lovely piece and fits in really well with it's surroundings. The fabric is perfect for it.

  4. The different scales of the checkerboard pattern look nice together. It's a great space! (Nice photos too)

  5. Jill's furniture is beautiful..Looks lovely in that Room..x

  6. Wow, this sofa is indeed special and looks absolutely perfect in your Shabby Chic House. The cushions look equally at home on the bed and you are right...could have no less than five!

  7. Ce sofa est vraiment magnifique et il est parfait pour votre intérieur!!

  8. What a fabulous sofa, I love the mix of the small and large checks and the stripes on the bolster cushions. It really suits the room. It is beautiful made.

  9. HI Janice! The new sofa is the perfect addition to your beach hut, how good that you are on Facebook, haha!

  13. I always admire Jill's work on facebook. What you bought is really gorgeous. I love the photos.

  14. You know, I still have not joined FB, --the last hold-out?-- but perhaps I'll rethink that decision after learning your little secret. Your new sofa looks heavenly in your (not-so) shabby-chic house! Just gorgeous!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Janice,

  15. Gosh I m really starting to really love this chic white beach look, this is really lovely Janice! You have me really getting into this now!

  18. Hi Janice, Yes it is a terrific sofa and such nice complimentary colours. Often in minis a fabric can seem too bright. I think this may be why the shabby chic ethic is so popular for minis. Everything going very nicely in your house. Looking forward to seeing the finishing touches.
    Seasons greetings and regards

  19. I love the pillows and the little doggie on the end is so cute :)
