Veranda August 2015

Victoria & Son was lucky enough to be included in the July - August issue of Veranda! They featured a custom full-round circular bergere we made a few years ago for M Group. The bergere was actually based on some of our corner bergere designs, which we adapted into a 3 section circular form, which you can see in the computer rendering of the frame below. Researching the design, we discovered a pair of one of the corner bergere designs in a 1950's photo of my Grandfather's apartment in the Dakota. Veranda published this photo, but a fuller version of it is below. He made most of the pieces seen in the image, including the tole flower-form candelabra crawling out of the wall, which of course I want to make now...
