When my client first contacted me about a slipcover project, she had a particular chair and ottoman in mind. When it came time to discuss fabric options, she had found this chair and ottoman set on Craiglist and wanted it done instead. But this was no ordinary Craigslist find - these were Quatrine pieces, in like-new condition!!
The only issue were the red slipcovers - not my client's style. But, that's an easy fix ;)
She had another Quatrine piece that had a pique-type fabric, so she was looking for something similar. We landed on a beautiful white linen/cotton blend from Gray Line Linen. Once it was washed and dried, it had that great pique texture that she was going for!
She knew she wanted knife pleats all around the bottom. And, to mix things up just a little, we used white denim for the piping.
Here's a close-up of the texture of the fabric...
English roll arms are always a classic feature...
We finished off the project with little slips for a couple of footstools. This time we used the denim for the main slipcover and did the pleats in the linen/cotton blend (this shows the before and after)...
A new look more in keeping with my client's style :)
