For more information please message us or email

Step 1. Frame

You can select a frame which is the same as any item that is on the website. We also have a range of frames that are not on the website which we can show you.

Step 2. Paint Finish

At the moment we have 12 finishes to choose from. You can view these on the Finishes Tab. Click on each finish to see items in these finishes. 

You can view and touch these paint finishes at our stand at the Home Ideas Centre (165 The Strand, Parnell, Auckland)


Step 3. Upholstery

There are three options for upholstery:

1. Choose from our standard upholsteries.

Our popular ones are ‘ivory stripe’ (below), 'snow white', ‘black velvet', 'red velvet', 'pink velvet', 'tiffany', 'white leatherette', and 'siro grey'.

And here are some more velvet samples:


There is no extra charge for items in standard upholstery. 

2. Choose fabric from one of our recommended fabric stores.

You can view the fabrics in their stores or online: ABFabrics and Marthas in New Market, Auckland.

The stores can send you free fabric samples. If you are in Auckland you can take these fabric samples to our showroom and compare them against the paint finishes.

There is a $50 admin fee for each item in a new fabric. 

3. Supply your own fabric.

As a rough guide, small arm chairs require 1.3 meters, large armchairs require up to 5 meters, chaise lounge requires up to 7 meters. We will let you know how much fabric is required.

There is a $50 admin fee for each item in a new fabric. 

The admin fee is to cover additional national and international courier charges, taxes, the drawing up of design sheets and changes to the production line.


Step 4. Trimming

Once you have selected the frame, paint finish and upholstery, you can select the trimming. There are three options available, these are pins, braid, or piping.


Below left are the three colours of pins available, these are silver, gold, and brass. They are available as individual pins or pins already in a row. Individual pins are slightly more expensive than the pins already in a row as they take quite a bit more time to apply. On the right are our gimp braid options. 


Below is an example of double piping, for thicker materials such as velvet we would recommend a single row of piping.

Once the items are finished they are completed with a brass La Maison Boutique badge which is discretely placed on the underneath or back of the items.


New dimensions:

You may be working to fit a particular space and need your furniture to be a different measurement than what it usually is. You may select new dimensions for any item that is on the website. Any change in dimensions will incur a $50 admin fee per item.
