I was commissioned for a design project in a lovely North End home late last fall and was delighted to put my upholstery skills to good use with a fabulous chair challenge.
BEFORE: The owner (the lovely Taya) stumbled upon this incredible mid century gem at a garage sale. The wood was in perfect condition but the cushions were beyond dated so she had two pieces of foam cut in hopes of recovering it some day.
AFTER: Taya wanted a fun and relevant geometric print to use in her bedroom while staying in line with her color scheme (turquoise, browns, creams and blues). This cotton canvas fabric (found at Home Fabrics for $5.99 per yard – a STEAL-) was fun, durable and new without being over-the-top trendy.
She wasn’t thrilled with the resulting thickness of the foam so I took it to my favorite upholstery friends on Chinden and had both pieces trimmed.
I finished the chair with some funky pillows from the ever reliable TJ Maxx and the piece settled perfectly next to the window in Taya’s uber chic bedroom.
DONE AND DONE.
