Winging It.

I love a good chair. I love a good pattern. I love a good before/after challenge.

So when a client approached me with the task of outfitting her new living room – building off of just one sofa – It was clear that I had my work cut out for me.

To me, the immediately obvious set-up yearned for a fabulous pair of patterned wing-back chairs. Luckily for me, Tayler was all-too willing to hop on board with the funky train so very little convincing was necessary – although a bit of fabulous inspiration board-sharing was still compulsory.

With my mission clear, I set sail on the Craigslist seas in search of the perfect fixer-uppers and came upon these steal-of-a-deals and started to brainstorm upholstry….

Tayler was particularly fond of their somewhat squatty stature…

…(although the novelty of their petiteness waned slightly upon the sit-test performed by her not-so-petite but oh-so-tolerant husband. All 6″7 of him).

I’ve been big on contrast backing so we decided to really go for it here with a green and white chevron and bold grey ikat. This took some major faith and visualization.

“Yuk!” Exclaimed a judgy Mamma Sally.  “I don’t get it.” stated a perplexed Special Man Friend.

Don’t worry. Both statements were immediately retracted when I pulled these puppies out of my car three weeks later.

BAM!

And all the elements fall into place….

So, to review:
