Cut From a Different Cloth

BEFORE - The blue vinyl had to go!
It's amazing what a new coat of paint can do for an old house.  Likewise, a fresh fabric used to re-upholster an older piece of furniture can absolutely rejuvenate it.  Take these two quaint armchairs for example.  My client had seen them at an op-shop and despite the horrendous blue vinyl and missing buttons, at $30 each he couldn't pass them up.  He brought them to me and I thought their rustic charm and informal style would be complimented beautifully using a patterned fabric in an organic patterned fabric.  Sydney based Cloth Fabrics seemed a perfect fit.  To keep costs down we upholstered the back of the chairs in a textured plain fabric from Warwick Fabrics in a dark charcoal colour.  Voila! These two chairs are now an inviting feature of his living room and completely unique - not to mention a lot more comfortable than before!
AFTER - Two beautiful new armchairs awaiting delivery
