When is a chair not a chair..?
...When it has been transformed into a truly beautiful, one-off gorgeous piece of vintage furniture!!!
It's a 1930s armchair which had been re-covered in recent years, but was now rather drab, dreary, tattered and torn (thanks to the cats!) and more than a tad grubby in places! I had a vision of a patchwork of rosy vintage fabrics and having some fabrics that I thought would be perfect, I went on the hunt for more. Of course, I regularly changed my mind with regard to colours, styles etc!
There is such a lovely variety of fabrics here; old Sanderson linen; 50s roses cotton; French florals; rosey barkcloth - all stitched together in a charming patchwork!
The chair will live in the clock house which means there is the temptation to sit back and relax every day!
But the relaxing will have to wait - first I have to update the website with more vintage goodies!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
