Linen has been the fabric this fall, at least in my workroom. And I am not complaining! This time, the project was slipcovers for a pair of Ethan Allen club chairs with attached back cushions and the matching ottoman - well-loved, but in need of refreshing...
My client chose a creamy white weighty linen - Glynn linen from Covington. This linen has a beautiful weight and comes in lots of colors. I pre-washed and dried it, and then got to work. Here is the after (pillow is mine)...
This linen covered the high-contrast print better than we anticipated, so an underslip was not necessary. My client loved the double corner pleats I had done on a chair for my Mom, so we did the same here. And I left them unpressed to add some feminine flair to the simple design.
As these chairs may go back to their printed version at some point, we left the back cushions attached, and just covered them all in one piece.
And now these pieces are ready to take their place, just in time for the holidays.
Do you have any linen pieces in your house?
