chair peek

I inherited a “faux” vintage Eames lounge a year and a half ago when my grandparents moved from their home into an assisted living facility (it’s the best copy I’ve ever seen, but definitely not the real thing.) I recently had it reupolstered, and am so, so happy with how it turned out. I’ll post full before and after pictures soon, but here’s a peek:

I used Thomas Paul’s Aviary fabric in Tangerine for the bulk of it, which I found at Calico Corners for $18.74/yd – a crazy, crazy, steal (it usually retails for over $50/yd) and then piped it in brown linen that I bought as a remnant from my upholsterer. It makes me happy every time I walk into my bedroom.
