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!
