I picked up this chair from the upholsterer’s for a client today and I am so pleased with how it turned out. It is really just perfect in their space.*
As you can see below, the chair was in fairly dire shape before (excuse the terrible iPhone photo)
But with new fabric, new cushions, and refinishing of all of the wood? Adorable. Getting things reupholstered is not necessarily (or usually) that much cheaper than buying new, but I find it so much more satisfying. You’re a) saving an existing piece of furniture from the landfill and b) getting something totally custom that no one else will have.
*we’re getting pretty close to done with their house, and I cannot wait to share it. They are *great,* and it has been one of the most fun projects I’ve ever worked on. Look for more photos in the next few months.
