FULL DISCLOSURE: I’VE NEVER BOUGHT A SOFA. Instead, I’ve inherited a succession of lovingly broken-in couches from friends and relatives. There was the red slip-covered Ikea couch my sister gave me when she moved to Ukraine to serve in the Peace Corps. The tufted, moss-green sectional my roommate sold me for $25, which included delivery in her station wagon. Now, the star of my living room is a sturdy plaid couch that formerly belonged to my grandmother. It’s the most comfortable of the three, but its cushions are beginning to fade and sag. I know the end is in sight — but I didn’t know how to go about buying a suitable replacement until recently. This is why I suggested CUE publish a how-to guide for sofa shopping (p. 15). It turns out the task is more complex than I’d imagined, involving measuring tape, room schematics and fabric swatches. There’s a whole world of sofa terminology: hand-tied coil suspensions, kiln-dried hardwood, cushion warranties … and that’s just scratching the surface. It’s funny that sofa shopping can be Byzantine, because the ideal couch potato experience is

NOLA BEAUX TIES OWNER DAVE HOLT found his calling when he saw a friend’s dog decked out in a canine bow tie. Holt thought, “I can do that.” He pulled out his grandmother’s Singer sewing machine and got to work. Now, Holt runs NOLA Beaux Ties (www. nolabeauxties.com) from his home, where fabrics, patterns and ties in various stages of construction occupy any open space. Now in its third year, NOLA Beaux Ties encroaches on a traditionally expensive market by offering ties that cost $30 each. “I only use 100 percent cotton,” Holt says. “It’s a renewable resource and there are plenty of spots around town for me to source fabric.” The line includes patterns fit for LSU or New Orleans Saints games and Mardi Gras festivities. “When searching for fabric, I look for New Orleans inspiration, but I also pick up some that are just off the wall,” Holt says. “If I like the fabric and it ends up working once I take it home, I keep it. Sometimes not, but that’s OK. It is all part of the process of creating.”

Consider the room’s function and dimensions when shopping for a new sofa. | PHOTO COURTESY LA-Z-BOY NEW ORLEANS

Tuftchoices In the market for a new couch?

Here’s what to know before you go to the showroom. BY ANDRE A BLUMENS TEIN

GET OUT YOUR TAPE MEASURE, because it’s time to go sofa shopping. Buying a new couch can be stressful because of the item’s price tag and the wide range of options, but following a few simple steps can make the experience more enjoyable. Tasks can be divided into two categories: those you should do beforehand and those best sorted out with experts at the store. Start with a room analysis. Bill Robbins, store manager at Ashley Furniture HomeStore, suggests noting the room’s traffic patterns and walls. Identify spaces for potential end or accent tables, and ask yourself who will use the sofa. “Sectional sofas should be considered a viable option depending on room size, entertainment frequency and if there is a TV

bu i lt i n st yle in the room,” Robbins says. It’s helpful to bring the dimensions of your room to the store. “Most customers wish they knew the measurement of their existing sofa to compare it to the sofas in the showroom,” says Jamie Mutter, design manager at Doerr Furniture. “As a designer, I like to have the room dimensions and measurements of all doors, windows, etc.” With this information, she can create a floor plan that ensures the room isn’t crowded and people can move around easily. Is the sofa going in a formal sitting room or a more casual, family-oriented space? “It is important to consider what the focal point of the room is and how much other seating there will be,” says Larry Marquez Jr. of La-Z-Boy New Orleans. The color of flooring, carpet and walls affects what sofa you choose. This is the time to think about a style that fits your aesthetic and that of the space. If you have a certain look in mind, you’ll feel less overwhelmed in the showroom, Robbins says. “Narrow down style preferences based on whether the room is rustic, traditional, transitional or modern,” he says. Bring a fabric swatch home, because the color may look different in your living room than in the showroom. A sofa’s depth is easily modified with different pillows. A 23-inch inside depth is good for a person of average height, Mutter says. Because few people sit on a sofa with a straight back and two feet on the floor, this part of the shopping experience includes a lot of lounging. Finally, decide how much you are willing to spend. “Having a budget in mind helps buyers when they are comparing features at good/better/best price points,” Robbins says. The construction, pillow filling and upholstery factor into a sofa’s price. Eighty percent of a sofa’s value is in parts you cannot see, Marquez says. Always ask about cushion density, frame

A sofa can be the centerpiece of your home material and where the piece was made. “A high-end, quality sofa is made of eight-way hand-tied coils in most cases,” Mutter says. “A medium-quality sofa is made with a no-sag spring,” says Robbins, who recommends frames with kiln-dried hardwood and corner bracing. “Comfort and support is usually created with cushioning,” Marquez says. “We consider any sofa with a cushion density of 2.4 or higher to have the optimal, higher life span.”

While high-density foam is firmer and holds its shape longer, down provides a cushiony experience. The down requires some fluffing, which can be a negative. “A good combination in … sofas is high-density foam with feather or down wrapping,” Robbins says. Seat cushions affect how a sofa looks and feels and are one of the major price variants. Many sofas come with the option to upgrade cushions. “Some inexpensive cushion cores break down fast and

make your sofa look worn,” Mutter says. Leather, while expensive, remains one of the longest-lasting materials used in furniture. As far as non-leather options go, “linen and slipcover sofas are very popular right now,” Mutter says. “I’m a firm believer that in almost all cases you pay for what you get,” Marquez says. “A sofa can be the centerpiece of your home, and investing in a quality sofa can bring many years of enjoyment.”

These fall trends are surfacing on the runway and in interior design studios.

THE DECORATING WORLD has always taken cues from the fashion industry. In the past, trends hit the runway, then made their way into interior design. Nowadays, as trends are popularized via the Internet, runway looks are almost immediately translated into home decor — and vice versa. “Websites like 1stdibs.com curate things so that [fashion and decor] are intertwined,” says interior designer Chad Graci of Graci Interiors. “You can shop for a watch or a sofa all on the same website. It’s a whole new level of lifestyle branding.” Experts share tips for incorporating three major fall trends into your home and wardrobe.

herringbone Herringbone brings to mind classic menswear, but this year’s takes on the time-honored textile pattern come with a twist. For fall 2015, DKNY and Marc Jacobs sent long-length womenswear looks down the runway, while Prada’s herringbone look for women was accented with bright jewel tones. For New Orleans’ warm climate, Landry suggests working herringbone into your wardrobe with a small piece like a scarf, quilted purse, tights, socks or outerwear. At home, large herringbone patterns, which resemble chevron prints, are turning up on floors, rugs, backsplashes and more. Graci likes using herringbone for wood floors and tile and marble surfaces. “Use it in a fresh way by playing with the scale,” he says. “Paint a wooden floor with a herringbone pattern or do it in a graphic, oversize scale in an entry hall.” Clinton likes Ralph Lauren’s herringbone upholstery fabrics for the home. “They work so well on club chairs or in a wood-paneled library,” she says. “They have an old-world elegance and mix well with beiges, which people love to do in New Orleans.” Herringbonepatterned dress, $17 at H&M

Vogue describes the global fashion trend (which continues for fall) as a “veritable United Nations of textures and nomadic finds.” Think folk culture and vibrant prints from all over the world, then mix them together for a fresh, multicultural confluence of color and patterns. “The strongest trend I see is African/Moroccan influence,” Landry says. “You might think these prints don’t go together, but the textures create this thread of continuity.” Clinton includes Indian block print cottons, embroidery-inspired pillows and silk chinoiserie pillows from Michele Varian among her latest inventory. “Use it for a Roman shade in a room that only has one window,” she says. “It adds drama.” Christine Alexis, designer and CEO of jewelry brand Culture Shock (www.cultureshockstore.com), interprets the global trend more literally. Her latest collection, Wanderlust, is an ode to travel, with map and compass motifs. In July, she partnered with Painting with a Twist to auction 10 hand-painted globes. Proceeds benefited college students without the means to travel abroad. “I thought that the name Wanderlust was fitting because this collection is the perfect way to help my customers never forget the places that they visited and get excited for the places that they have yet to see,” Alexis says. Both Landry and Graci say today’s trends are accessible to everyone, world travelers or not. “The globe is at your fingertips,” Graci says.

cabernet

This rich red-brown hue is a natural fit for fall’s darker palette. While numerous fashion designers — including Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa, Rebecca Minkoff, Victoria Beckham and Zac Posen — brought the color to their fall collections, interior design showrooms applied it to everything from upholstery to lamps. Paula Landry, who regularly travels to Europe and New York to select clothing for her boutique, Victoria, recommends the hue as a wardrobe accessory rather than a staple. “It’s not a good choice for women with yellow undertones in their skin,” she says. Landry suggests enjoying the look by opting for a nail polish. “You don’t have to make every trend a permanent fixture in your life,” she says. “Trends are so fast and furious now, by the time you get to the store to look for it, the next item is already out.” Graci suggests similar restraint when it comes to interior design. He advises anchoring your decor with timeless investment pieces, then bringing in trends by changing accessories or using the newest color to paint the backs of bookshelves. “Decorating has gleaned from fashion that high-low mix,” he says. “Keep your classic and expensive things, but change out pillows or side tables for the look of the moment.” Interior designer Evelyne Clinton, owner of Source Interiors, agrees that color can be woven into an existing interior with small touches. Clinton suggests using cabernet or cayenne hues on the back of a chair for a pop of color or in a powder room for major impact. She also likes the idea of using it on an anchor piece such as a sofa. “It’s an easy color to move into furniture,” she says. “It translates well into a velvet sofa.”

differentstrokes A new technique called hair stroke micropigmentation is changing the face of cosmetic tattoos. BY MISSY WILKINSON

Michelle Martinez offers cosmetic tattooing, including brows, lips and eyeliner, at her Metairie studio. PHOTO BY MISSY WILKINSON

AH, THE ’90S … THE ERA OF PLATFORM SHOES, flannel shirts and center hair parts. But one ’90s trend — thin, waxed eyebrows—hasn’t returned. For people who spent years plucking unwanted hairs, or those who have thinning hair due to age or illness, the makeup trend du jour of full brows is difficult or impossible to achieve. “After years of waxing, your hair doesn’t grow back,” says Michelle Martinez, makeup artist and owner of Beso Makeup. “Full brows are such a trend right now — a lot of people with thin or uneven eyebrows want them to look full.” Martinez has offered brow shaping for four years, and this summer she added a new service: hair stroke micropigmentation. In laymen’s terms, that’s cosmetic tattooing. But there is a world of difference between Martinez’s technique, which involves drawing individual hairs using a single needle, and the less subtle approaches of the past. “With permanent makeup, some people shaved off the hair and filled in the eyebrow completely (with a tattoo). It looks very harsh,” Martinez says. “Hairstroke micropigmentation is a new technique that gives you the most realistic eyebrow. I leave the hair and add missing touches wherever your hair is lacking. I match the color to your hair, so it looks like when you get your makeup done.” Eyebrow micropigmentation costs $500, and an appointment lasts two hours, 30-45 minutes of which is spent doing the tattoo. Martinez applies numbing cream to her clients to lessen the pain and gives them a touchup 45 days after the initial session. This way, she

can perfect the final result. “I know some people like dramatic, but I always give them natural brows on the first appointment,” says Martinez, who studied visual art at NOCCA. “If they want darker or more dramatic brows, I can do that on the second appointment.” The pigment is semipermanent and remains for up to three years, depending on the client’s skin care and type. “The ink is not permanent,” Martinez says. “It’s different from tattoo ink and is meant to fade as time goes by.”

3200-3400 Magazine Street TEXT AND PHOTOS BY MISSY WILKINSON

Magazine Street’s six-mile stretch is a lot to tackle in one afternoon. Focus your efforts on these two blocks and be rewarded with a treasure trove of style. Arana Taqueria y Cantina

B Boutique

(3242 Magazine St.) Whether it’s Taco Tuesday, mole-smothered chicken Monday or some other time, this festive joint serves inspired cuisine from the Yucatan and offers sidewalk seating and an extensive menu of tequila cocktails.

(3300 Magazine St.) “Is this a $10 rack?” a blonde, maxi-dress wearing customer asked. Answer: yes, and those strappy heels are two pairs for $30 — in case you were wondering about the sales at this already affordable women’s boutique.

PLEASANT ST.

Hemline

MAGAZINE ST.

TOLEDANO ST.

(3308 Magazine St.) With shops in the French Quarter, Metairie, the Northshore and Uptown, the Hemline empire is a stylish, distinctly boho-inspired presence in almost every major shopping thoroughfare in the New Orleans area.

Buffalo Exchange

(3312 Magazine St.) This men and women’s clothing and accessories resale shop is the creme de la creme of vintage and secondhand clothing. Looking to sell? The staff’s got their eyes on tacky Christmas sweaters, Halloween costumes, boots, denim and light outerwear for fall.

Lili Vintage Boutique

(3329 Magazine St.) Don’t be intimidated by the gilt-edged mirrors and gleaming wood floors in this elegant vintage shop — though the vibe is high-end, the prices are not. Steals include this $17 necklace, 1950s cocktail dresses for $50-$90 and a vintage Dior ball gown for $500.
