I get a lot of fun projects, but it is especially meaningful to do a project for a friend. In this case, you can follow along with her family's remarkable and inspiring story here. She is also a FABULOUS baker - be sure to check out her delicious and beautiful creations here! The chair that she chose for a make-over was a basic wing chair.
We went to Pinterest for inspiration and she picked this gorgeous set of wing chairs by Custom Slipcovers By Shelley as the look she wanted. After that, we added in some other details she liked to come up with the final design (it was a bit like using Fashion Plates - anyone else remember having a set of those? Ok, that's going back awhile :/). She opted for a sturdy Brushed Bull Denim for the fabric. And this is what we came up with...
Elegant and anything but ordinary :) My client chose a slate gray with the white contrast band around the bottom. The skirt is box pleats all the way around.
The fabric is sturdy and washable, but so soft - like a flannel shirt, except much more sophisticated :)
The chair will be used at a kitchen desk, so the back had to be special - custom covered buttons provide this detail.
One of the inspiration pictures had rows of pleats down the middle of the back of the chair. My client decided this detail would work best on a throw pillow, so we added a lumbar pillow in the white fabric.
One more look at the whole package...
Definitely an upgrade :)
