You know how they say that procrastination is like masturbation because in the end you're just screwing yourself? Well, the only thing I have to say to that, is at least I'm the master of something.
Now, to be fair and maybe a little less inappropriate, I did accomplish one or two things that I'd like to share with you. So, in today's Retro Redo, I'd like to show the "before" and "afters" of a couple of vintage armchairs that our workroom has done.
my Etsy store. This handsome mid-century piece has great scale with great pieced button tufts on the back that emphasize its tailored silhouette. Even in its original velvet fabric it made a marvelous statement. But the fabric my client chose to re-upholster it in simply blew my mind. The piece finished up beautifully and though I didn't think it was possible, it is more gorgeous than before!
Another piece that proves my theory that customization in the home is like couture in the closet, is this great vintage reproduction Louis XV Bergere chair from the 1940s that I had also listed on my Etsy. It is a beautiful example of craftsmanship with its fantastic carving on the curvy french feet and arms. This client decided to guild the arms and feet and re-upholster in a lustrous chocolate pinstriped velvet. I think the results are spectacular and it is a simply sensational piece!
See you tomorrow with a "Christmas-y-themed" Want It Wednesday.
