Bringing a touch of royalty to Bendigo

Our home town of Bendigo is buzzing with a touch of royalty for the launch of the Bendigo Art Gallery’s latest blockbuster exhibition Tudors to Windsors”, of British royal portraits.

In preparation for this unique display of works from the London Portrait Gallery, the Bendigo Art Gallery were in contact with the Make Your House A Home upholstery team in late January 2019 looking for advice on how to bring their existing ottomans, bench seats and fabric display screens back to life, and to put a ‘royal’ touch into the design.

Using our vast range of fabric samples in the Make Your House A Home design studio, the gallery team viewed a number of swatches of Marrakesh and Saraphina by Zepel Fabrics. The desired fabrics were selected in early February, arriving at the end of the month ready for our team to use.

Fabric ideas

It was then full steam ahead into production by our talented upholstery team (including Gwen who is from England and was very excited to be involved with such a project!) to ensure delivery by the official launch date of March 15. delivery.

These beautiful pieces were completed and delivered to the Bendigo Art Gallery on Friday March 8.

The furniture is gorgeous and we are very, very pleased – it looks fantastic in the space.  The screens in particular are exactly as we imagined – thank you to the team!”

- Gaye Harrington, Acting Director Bendigo Art Gallery.
