Ingalls Wilder Trim
In 2021, I was asked to assist in the restoration of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s daybed to its original 1880s appearance. After nearly a year of research, sourcing, and sampling in partnership with the conservators of Fallon & Wilkinson, the daybed now sports a period-accurate trim newly woven by myself.
It was a privilege to focus in on this narrow (but vital) component of a larger piece and get acquainted with its intricate beauty. The daybed can be viewed in Ingalls Wilder’s historic house and museum.
