Take a Seat

It doesn't matter how much reupholstery we do around here, I am always amazed with the results. This is such an easy way to breathe new life into a piece of furniture, or a room for that matter.
This wing chair has been used in several rooms in my client's house and most recently became the reading chair in the bedroom.
I have no idea why it looks blue in the picture, because it was hunter green! I was originally hired years ago to make draperies for the living room to go with this chair.  They are still hanging in that room today.
The chair had a matching ottoman.
The walls of the bedroom had recently been painted and we installed new relaxed Roman shades in a beige and white linen sheer which you may remember from an earlier post. The bedding was a print featuring greens, beiges, and reds.  To update the chair and coordinate with the new color scheme, I suggested we use a small neutral check with a red welt to add a little spunk.  Love how it turned out.
We added the red pillow later.  Wouldn't it look cute monogrammed?
Here are some other chairs you may have seen before to inspire you either to use a gorgeous color, a fun pillow or a fantastic print - or even grommets!

More Brimar - notice the grommets in the skirt!
Now that they are predicting more snow for these parts, I think it's time to curl up with a good book!
