A Classic and Colorful Living Space With Designer Ashley Shaw

Meet Ashley

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Ashley moved to New York upon graduating from the University of Alabama. During her time in New York, Ashley worked diligently under the guidance of fashion icons Tory Burch, Giambattista Valli, and Emanuel Ungaro. In particular, it was her years at Tory Burch that taught Ashley how to integrate bright colors, geometric patterns, and detailed textures into furniture plans that maximized design elements in a single space.

For this living room makeover, Ashley selected our Monroe Tassel Sofa, a playful upholstery style featuring elegant sloping arms, beautiful pleated tufting, tassel trim, and an upgraded down-wrapped bench seat. Shown here in Ice Blue Velvet complete with Performance Natural Linen contrast piping (offered at no up-charge!)

Ashley’s client scored a pair of our Stevie Swivels at our 2020 sample sale and they’re still standing the test of time! Shown here in Performance Blush Linen with Performance Natural Linen contrast piping.

Reaching back to the early 80s, the Society Social vintage collection features iconic pieces handpicked and reproduced from our design archives. One of our favorites from the collection is the Baytown End Table handcrafted of natural, sustainable rattan. It’s always refreshing to see our customers loving the reimagined pieces as much as we do! 

Ashley's Design Tip

“Buy what you love and you will never regret it! And quality lighting goes far!”

Color Crush

Charlotte-based interior designer Ashley Shaw seamlessly blends modern and traditional silhouettes, crafting homes filled with personality and charm for her clients. Scroll below to see how she and her client made our Monroe Tassel Sofa, Stevie Swivel, Baytown End Table and pillows their own.

In 2014, shortly after leaving New York and relocating to the Southeast, Ashley founded Ashley Shaw Design. Since then, her clients have taken her all over the East Coast. Ashley currently lives in Charlotte with her husband and three children. 

"I love the classic lines of the Monroe Sofa.  It will be in style for years to come!" - Ashley

Inspired by the alluring swivels of the 70s, the Stevie Swivel takes a flirty, curvaceous shape featuring a chic scalloped arm. Modern meets comfort in a casual yet stylish vibe.

Perfect Pairings

A tried and true pillow duo, we love the visual balance and combination of the large scale Chinese Peony print with the smaller scale Signature Les Touches French Blue print. 

Thank you, Ashley, for including us in this beautiful project!
