I loved this chair’s design but the upholstery….not so much.
I’m never one to make a decision quickly and it took me nearly a year and a half before I could find upholstery fabric for this chair that I both liked and could afford. I finally found an inexpensive fabric at Hancock Fabric in Richmond that was reasonably priced for the yardage that I needed.
I also found a great local upholsterer who complete this project in just two days. Not only did he do an excellent job on the upholstery, he also tightened the chair’s joints. If you are local and need upholstery work completed, I’ll be happy to pass on his information to you.
Our family room is definitely a mix of styles. While the chair is mid-century, I think it blends well with our modern Vermont made television credenza. Mr. SP saw this piece at Clear Lake Furniture in Vermont, couldn’t stop thinking about it, and had one made for our home. Other pieces in the room are antique and more mid-century which I’ll share later this week.
I am so pleased with the end result of this chair makeover. The neutral fabric is period appropriate for this chair and it blends nicely with the rug.
