This tv cabinet is so much fun!!
Coming soon to Meminos…
Check out these recent ‘before and after’ facelifts from Marroquin Custom Upholstery!
Marroquin’s work is second to none. They produced a beautiful custom-made headboard for me that I love! Give them a call if you have a tired piece of furniture that “needs a little work”!
I can’t wait to show you my gorgeous new custom headboard that I’ll be picking up soon from Marroquin Upholstery! It’s perfect and, along with my gorgeous Peacock Alley linens, will make a beautiful luxurious bed just for me!
This Wednesday through Friday, Marroquin Custom Upholstery will be having a sample sale at their warehouse from 10 to 5 each day. Don’t miss this opportunity to take advantage of some great deals on handmade pieces that no one else will have!
Stay tuned for my fully dressed bed to make it’s debut soon!
I almost feel like I have a “bun in the oven” and I’m getting a sonogram image! OK…I know this is no where near the thrill of giving birth, but this custom headboard is pretty exciting in my world right now! I just received a few photos of the headboard progress!
It’s amazing how they transformed this wood into the shape of the headboard that was in my head! They make it look so easy!
Amazing, right? It’s exactly what I wanted!! Now they will use the cream colored velvet that I supplied (I bought it at Childress Fabrics, by the way…) and continue to work their magic!
Jesus, Ivan, and the rest of the craftsmen at Marroquin, are true perfectionist! They inspect every inch of the products that they produce and are not happy until the client is completely satisfied! I can’t wait to see the next photos of my new headboard and I can’t wait to show you!
Thanks, Jesus and Ivan, for your unparalleled attention to detail! The quality of your product is like no other!
Since I’ve decided to commit to building the bed of my dreams, this requires an equally dreamy headboard, right? I knew I wanted an upholstered lightly-tufted look and couldn’t seem to find one anywhere with all the right curves…
I liked the curves of this headboard…
with the tufted touch of this one…plus I wanted a nailhead trim approximately 2.5 inches from the edge…oh, and I’d like that in a soft creamy velvet! Is anyone having visions of the scene in “When Harry Met Sally” where Sally is ordering at the restaurant?
A custom headboard seemed to be the solution for what I want and Marroquin Custom Upholstery in Dallas is THE place for quality custom-made furniture! Jesus Marroquin, the owner, has 40 years experience in exclusive upholstery and old world craftsmanship. His attention to detail is beyond compare, as he personally inspects each piece before it moves out the door.
When I brought in my inspiration photos for my headboard, Ivan, Jesus’ son, gave me the grand tour of their large production facility. This operation is packed with some of the finest craftsmen around. Each custom-made frame is built in-house to ensure a quality foundation.
They hand-turn all of the feet and legs…
and standard construction features old world 8-way hand-tied springs individually placed to provide the highest level of quality and durability.
You don’t find this type of dedication to quality of detail anywhere else!
I observed Jesus’ brother studying the fabric design and carefully laying it over each piece to make sure that the pattern is cut and matched perfectly. Here’s an example of the perfection in the end.
Amazing, right? I’m so excited to work with them to make my headboard! Ivan listened carefully to the details of what I had in mind and began to sketch and take notes…
I’m confident that he knows exactly what I want and will make sure that every detail is considered during the construction process. He’s even promised to take pictures during the stages of construction so that I can watch it being built and share with you!
The next time you need a custom piece or the finest quality upholstery available, contact them here. They will assist in getting the information needed to put together the headboard, chair, couch, etc. that will last a lifetime! Marroquin has clients all over the world, so you don’t have to be in Dallas to work with this amazing company.
Don’t forget…today’s the last day to leave a comment to win the resort throw from Peacock Alley! Hurry!!
I’m thrilled about what we’ll be doing over the next couple of months at THL! I’ll be working with Peacock Alley and Marroquin Custom Upholstery to show you how to put together the bed of your dreams!
We’ll learn that dressing your bed is much like dressing yourself. Fashionable and stylish! We’ll use natural fibers, sleek silhouettes and yummy colors! We can all have a luxurious, glamorous bed of our dreams and we’re going to walk you through the process…one step at a time!

Dear Midcentury Lovers,
The time is now! The Herman Miller Event is June 3 through the 13th. This is the one time of the year that you can get your Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, etc. “fix” for 15% off! Here are a few things on my wish list…
Right now I have a vintage knock-off Eames lounge and ottoman (found at a consignment store for $300) and it’s one of my most favorite things in my home. Extreme comfort! I would love to have the real deal in ivory!
Art and function! This Noguchi table was designed in 1948 and is as hot as ever in 2011!
Would love to have 4 of these Eames molded chairs in this color for my den. The color would be so fund with a wonderful vintage kilim rug I have in my TV room.
I bought my Eames rocker a couple of years ago during this event and I love it! It sits in my guest room…
My collection also contains one of these vintage Eames molded plywood lounge chairs found at Again and Again. I’ve yet to find to perfect place for it in my home, but I absolutely love it! Such incredible design!
What’s your favorite from Herman Miller?
