Do you have one of these?
I really would be interested to know if there are any more of these in the world. Right now, I know there are six. These were part of my parents’ first furniture set – very modern – two were even done in a wild tropical print and it came with lights that looked like lamp posts. They were purchased in 1980, and resided in our oh-so-modern split-level.
So, several of us have “inherited” them. As you can see, they are well-loved and well-worn. Babies have slept in them. Adults have lounged in them. But, what they are really most famous for is that kids read in them. They are the famous reading chair in the Bates family.
We couldn’t just leave them like that, though, especially after 30+ years of reading. So, of course we designed a slip-cover. This is the second slipcover this chair has seen.
The fabric is Premier Prints Ozborne Robin/White
Really, anything can be slip-covered. By the way, if you have a reading chair, I have the pattern.
