What do you do when your husband's favorite chairs keep mysteriously migrating to the breakfast table? And they don't really "go" with the rest of the style of the room? You slipcover them, of course :)
My client's husband has a pair of these beautiful vintage Hitchcock chairs that are his favorites (I love the gold trim and lettering on the back!).
Rather than continue to move them back to another room, she decided to embrace them and have them slipcovered to go with the chairs we had already done...
Now they blend with the rest of the room, and, as a bonus, are a little more protected from daily wear and tear. Win-win!
We used Fritz fabric in Sky, as we had with her other chairs...
... and kept the design simple, except, of course, we had do to something with the back ;)
I used buttons that were similar to the ones I had used for the other slips, but this time I chose an antique gold color, to go with the gold details of the chairs.
A simple blind hem on the short skirt finished them off (and I added ties in strategic places on the inside, so the slips stay in place on the slippery wood).
I love it when favorite pieces can continue to be enjoyed, even when style preferences change!
