When I look at a room in my favorite interior design magazines, it’s the upholstered furniture that always stand out. That perfect couch. The statement occasional chair. And what I also notice is the furniture always looks custom. Enter TapeMeasure in Pleasantville. TapeMeasure is a new go-to home design center for upholstered furniture and window treatments.
This isn’t your grandmother’s upholstery shop and that is clear from walking through the front door. TapeMeasure itself is so stylish. I immediately have confidence in Elizabeth Calderone, the owner of TapeMeasure. (Elizabeth was a merchandising executive in her past life.) Bring in a picture from a magazine and Elizabeth and her team of artisans can create that item from scratch. If you’re interested in breathing new life into a chair you inherited from your family, she can do that, too. Flipping through the enormous selection of fabrics will give you a lot of ideas (the fabrics are GORGEOUS), but Elizabeth is also a resource and is on point with current trends.
It’s clear when talking to Anna that she’s passionate about her work. She spoke with pride of the antique French chairs in the window that they reproduce. Elizabeth says she loves the “before” and “after” process – the sad, wilted chairs that are transformed into contemporary beauties. I saw a few that I would love to take home. There is also a stunning mid-century modern couch in the window just waiting for that lucky someone to take it home.
