The calendar says it’s spring, so we’ve folded up those heavy throws and packed them away in the closet for fall. We de-cluttered and deep cleaned at our houses and the shop, and are eager to share a new designer project! With all the Pinspiration we’ve been enjoying throughout the winter, we have recognized our own personal style, and want to blend that with the new and vibrant colors of Spring 2013! All this and more, without spending a fortune.
Sometimes we find treasures right in our own homes, or those of relatives abandoning chairs that are comfortable, have great lines and remain current, but they may just lack the fabric covering they need. We discovered two such chairs on a recent outing and decided to share a project with you worth embracing. These low back arm chairs in good and comfortable condition were transformed into perfect reading chairs for a bedroom or corner of the family room. New fabric and a professional upholsterer and these little treasures are dressed and ready to go.
Notice the coordinating fabric in the custom bedroom makeover. We used cotton upholstery fabrics on these smaller chairs; one is a small green and white cheetah print and the other one in a pink and green suzani pattern. The circle motif, has a rather ethnic or global look.
The smaller winged chair is simply slip covered! The cover is easily removable for cleaning and a perfect choice for those with pets or small children.
Our third chair had a previous life at Aunt Caroline’s. It’s a wonderful old Williamsburg that we dressed in a linen fabric with a gorgeous vase pattern that was very popular back then. With the new upholstery, the chair has become a true eye-catcher in the shop and our customer’s just love it. Susan designed and created the charming embroidered pillow to compliment the colors and voila! A divine design, indeed!
