Chairs Before and After

I had a lot of readers ask me where to find the chairs in my last post. They were actually already owned by my client and are from Lee Industries. The chairs are a nice small size for New York apartments. You can see from the before photo below what a difference new upholstery and fabric can make on an old chair! The new fabric is a small neutral herringbone from Travers called Warwick which is available from Zimmer + Rohde. I also had my upholsterer remove the nail head trim so they would look clean and simple. So they next time you think about getting rid of an old chair, just remember that it can be given new life with new fabric!

You saved these chairs' life! I don't know whats more terrifying, the cowboy pillow or the not-so-well-executed zebra. Go HC!
