Della R. Charland


Della began sewing when she was 12 years old. Her first sewing machine was a gift from her Mom, who also loved to sew. Della’s first project was sewing a jumper for her Grandma. She fell in love with the creativity of sewing and working with colours and texture, as well as the pleasure that others derived from her creations. From there Della expanded her repertoire of skills to custom drapery, upholstery, slipcovering, picture framing, and floral decorating. She apprenticed under North American masters and old world craftsmen in Germany and France. She further developed her interior design and decorating working with small-space residential units, and home staging. Della’s creativity is textured by the ever changing kaleidoscope of her multicultural and multinational experiences, and informed by the Fibonacci elements that abound in nature. Drop in to our Interior Design Centre and chat with Della, in either English or French, about the latest colour, textile and design trends.
