Louis XV style settee hand-painted vellum with gilt detail and upholstered in the blue Castle Howard design fabric from Susan Bembridge Designs. Beautiful Settee and chair from John Hodgson in the U.K. John Hodgson furniture is exquisite and has been featured in the Mulvaney and Roger's "Magnificent Miniatures" book including their gorgeous Buckingham Palace! The fabric is from Sue Bembridge designs. It is from her "Historic House Collection", Castle Howard. I chose this fabric in honour of my English grandmother Elsie. We didn't always have the best relationship, but I loved her deeply. The best day I can remember with her was the day we visited Castle Howard. All the beautiful rooms and the absolutely gorgeous flower arrangement done personally by Mrs.Spencer. Princess Diana's wedding dress and all the clothing of her attendant's were being exhibited at that time. Pure bliss!!! I can almost taste the egg sandwiches and tea in the little cafe!
