A Hearty Welcome to the Atelier "Emilia Marie"
The love of paints, colours, materials and fine fabrics; the good feeling one gets in one’s own four walls and especially the combination of shabby chic with its gentle nuances and various styles have so inspired me that it matured from a hobby to a calling.
My workshop „Emilia Marie“ is set up in our former Domaine. I source all my furniture from this region; often real treasures, which have unfortunately been forgotten or even rejected.
Each piece of furniture is worked on with only high quality products – chalk paints with high pigment content and quality waxes. I utilise products from „Painting the Past“.
The surfaces can be configured with various methods. Chalk paints are matt and powdery, and combined with wax produce a fine, silky shine. All furniture has the usual lumps and bumps, the signs of history of old pieces – which also gives it character. With chairs, stools and armchairs, suitable coverings and borders add further personality. I also offer upholstery work.
I will discuss with you with pleasure the choice of colours for a particular piece which you wish to order.
Or, if you would just like to „pop-in“ to see my workshop and perhaps even take an old piece home with you... Or participate in one of my workshops „Shabby Chic – Design your own furniture“
...whatever your choice, I will be pleased to greet you - Yours Christine Parker
