A Coverlet fit for a Queen

We love to see how our products are used to create beautiful soft furnishings.  The luxurious bedding ensemble shown below was shared by Artesanas Interior Design, designer Christy Bejarano and Custom Window Treatments, Inc of Charlotte, NC. 
See below to learn the special techniques used to create this coverlet.
The Details:

Custom painted fabric was used on the bed pillows.  The largest size pillow shams have a pleated flange and self covered welt cord in the edges.  The pillow in the middle features pleated velvet fabric, contrast velvet welt cord and decorative trim.  At the front of the pillow grouping are two rectangular button tufted shams, with brush fringe sewn in the seams.

Custom Window Treatments Inc. used a unique method to create this beautiful coverlet.  Two duvet inserts from Rowley Company were used,  a Down Duvet #DU74/S was sewn to the back of the pleated velvet fabric used for the top of the coverlet, and a Polyester Duvet #DU38/S was sewn to the fabric for the backing.  Contrast welt was added around the edges and the front and back were then sewn together.  Sharon Coppede, with Custom Window Treatments, Inc. shared that they have "...a great machine from the 1920's that will sew anything for us".

After the coverlet was sewn and turned right sides out, it was tufted with covered buttons on the front which were tufted through the duvet filler from front to back with heavy upholstery thread, which was tied off on the back, leaving tails of thread as a design detail.  The tufting holds the coverlet together and gives a luxurious, soft dimpled finish.
Thank you for sharing!
