This is one of two chairs that was dropped off by a client. We made new cushions for it out of a black and white fabric. I love the fun geometric print our client picked out, so cute! The white cording really makes these cushions look great, the perfect finishing touch! The chairs themselves were a bit dingy. The wood was dried out and because of years of use there was a layer of build up on the arms. It took some serious elbow grease, but we brought back the original luster and beauty.
After the chairs where finished I set one of them out in front of the store. I couldn’t believe how many people came in to ask me how much I wanted for the chair. I guess I should start looking for mid century pieces of furniture for re-sale in our boutique, apparently that look is pretty hot right now.
