Creativity in Upholstery

I want to share this really fun chair that was upholstered for a client. Prior to it’s transformation into an absolutely adorable statement this was a rusty gold, crushed velvet slipper chair from the 1970′s; certainly it was in need of some TLC. I used a striped cotton on the back and seat cushions. The barrel back of the chair is covered in a bright Schumacher floral linen print. The buttons are encased in raspberry velvet and to top it all off, a multi-colored cord trim was used in place of welt to tie everything together just perfectly! So cute!
A great example of creating something new out of what you may already have at home.
