chair couture

4

chair couture has been around for a while i believe, but i'm a big fan. new york based designer, margaret elman reaquires antique furniture and reupholsters it in unexpected patterns and modern fabric designs. the louie look is still in, so i'm sure her business is booming, but i think her work will be timeless for many of us. the idea of reusing something beautiful and updating it to reflect your own personal style and a new time is a concept that will never grow old. you can contact margaret at chair couture right here to see which pieces she currently has in stock. but, if something like this isn't in your price range, consider using craigslist, ebay or flea market (or roadside) shopping to find vintage pieces you can refinish and reupholster for less! enjoy! [thanks to d*s reader, robyn for the tip!]

I love these and am thinking of trying the DIY version with a couple of wing-back chairs that I inherited.

Does anybody have any idea how much it would cost to get a wingback chair re-upholstered?

The price will depend on what part of the country you are in and how much of the chairs are fabric vs. wood, loose cushions, etc. Feel free to send a photo and we can discuss. Have fun!

I great idea of uniting past achievements with today's tastes (the well known fusion trend again)
