Before and After

In the meantime, we have done many great upholstery projects with clients
but we have clearly not been keeping up with posts!

In an effort to start catching up, one of the latest: a pair of great slipper chairs
done in natural latex.

upholstery post #2

Carolyn and Ben picked this uniquely detailed not-too-big wing chair from, lets call it- ‘The Golden Calf Vintage Frame Collection.’ With the help of a well chosen fabric -on their part- it turned into a handsome hybrid with the perfect balance of new & old, masculine & feminine, reading & watching. Check out the before, during and after:

upholstery post #1

This is the first of what will be an ongoing series of posts including both client and store-bound upholstery projects to give you an idea of what is possible in the world of reinventing new finds and old favorites…

Starting with a smallish piece, behold: the rocking chair. This great old rocker had been in the family for a while but, a little overcome by events, it begged an update. In this case, Brooke and Josh wanted to enliven the frame as well as the fabric so we gave it a two prong overhaul.
1. Wood: Stripped and given a clean wax finish even the simple grain of this poplar frame livened up.
2. Upholstery: They chose a great Josef Frank print on linen which pretty much speaks for itself. We followed the original upholstery patterning, replacing some panels that were once caning, with fabric.
And there you have it….from (well loved) American Gothic to (undeniable optimistic) Swedish Modern…
