September issue of 7x7 Magazine
has included a shot of my singerie screen in their home and design section.
A Delicate Matter - Care for your bare necessities with these pretty picks for your laundry room. by Leilani Labong This large screen made its debut my "Vintage Laundry" in the 2007 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Each panel is 90" high by 26" wide and 1.75" thick - sturdy enough to serve as a room divider, or to create a dressing area from a larger room.One side of the screen is painted in a blue/gray neoclassical motif with singerie scenes in which the monkeys are all playing with clothing, sewing, etc.Contact Lynne Rutter for details about purchasing this screen or commissioning a custom piece.My thanks to David Papas Photographer for these photos.
I wonder if you could help me locate a wood screen to finish myself? I love the design of your Singerie Screen...I'm not sure if that is a reference to the design of the screen itself, or your design. Thank you,ReplyDelete
Hi Darlene. This screen was custom built for me as I needed it to be large enough to cover an enormous water heater and be sturdy like a room divider. I have never seen wooden screens for sale that were not already decorated, so I recommend you contact a trustworthy carpenter and have one built, or fashion one from wooden folding doors and 2-way hinges. Thanks for visiting!Delete
"Singerie" is a reference to the design-- it means "monkey trick" and describes the French tradition of decoration featuring monkeys wearing clothes and doing silly human things.Delete
