Welcome to Cornerstone!
Decorating - to furnish with something ornamental; to enhance the appearance of something by adding something unessential; relieving plainness or monotony by adding beauty, color or design.
Home Couture - the business of designing, making and selling fashionable custom made home furnishings - taking all measurements to prepare custom designs that are individually produced, one-of-a-kind creations. There is dressmaker attention to the small details (lining, pattern matching, embellishments) that make couture pieces a joy to observe and to own. This level of quality is NOT inexpensive or quick, but is oh so luxurious and magical.
Soft Furnishings - examples of soft furnishings would be: draperies and shades, bedding and duvets, tablecoverings (cloths, placemats, runners, napkins) rugs, luxury cushions, throws, pillows, bolsters, slipcovers, upholstered headboards.
