Twins with Different Personalities

012

I acquired these chairs through a trade and thought I could use them, but decided to sell them along with slipcovers to Kirsten for her newly renovated little farmhouse.

013

I love the shape, but the attached pillow cushions for seat and back were a challenge.

005

She wanted them to be different – each will go in a bedroom.
Really, two different personalities.

008

This one is lined and has a nubby, cotton weave.  I like the slightly lighter piping.

009

I can really picture it with a punchy pillow.

007

It’s sister is a little more funky with a tad more personality.

011

I love that you can tuck this in so it looks more custom. Waverly Lovely Lattice Jungle.

006

Contrasting piping sets defines the shape and of course, the knife-edge pleats are a fav.

005

Same chair, different look.  I can’t wait to see them in their spaces.

Mickey’s Find

008

Mickey found this beauty on CraigsList.  It is super comfy.

009

It hardly looks like the same sofa. The back cushions have been changed to loose pillows and I love the transformation with the French seams.

010

The body of this piece is made out of beautiful 100 percent linen.
The seat cushions are out of a durable woven Sunbrella fabric.

011 012

She wanted a waterfall skirt – which gives it a really seamless look.

015

Remember this beauty?

014

It looks beautiful in this space. 

Beth’s Not-So-Homely Chair

009

When she dropped it off, Beth described this as her ugly chair.  She couldn’t wait to get a slipcover for it.  She did re-work the cushion a little, so that it would be firmer.

010

Not so homely anymore.  She wanted something neutral to go with some colorful pillows.
We did two of them.

012

This is a brushed twill.  Some pleating on the wings give a little character.

015

Buttons were covered at Royal Upholstery and then buttonholes sewn into the back to keep the tufting look.  I guess we could call it faux-tufting.

018

Quite the improvement, don’t you think?
