One more chair-saved!

Last chair to view for now….this one was given to my upholstery guy by someone who was “throwing it out”. He reupholstered it for a talk we did together with Carol Sarason (window treatments,pillows,bedding) on decorating at Carlton-Willlard in Bedford MA for senior citizens. I loved it so much that I kept it and brought it down to my summer house. Sometimes all it takes is finding a fun fabric-keeping in mind the scale of the pattern and the style of the chair.Image

“Well, I do have”…..

This is what I hear quite often-as with this client.”Well, I do have this old chair I inherited-it is out in the shed”. We were considering what kind of chair she wanted ¬†to purchase¬†for her new guest bedroom and then she remembered the chair out in the shed. Incredible. Again-the message: think about chairs you can reupholster instead of purchasing a new one!
