Much gratification comes when a project starts to come together. After digging through so many wrong fabrics to find the right ones and waiting very impatiently for reupholstery we can breathe a sigh of relief when, in this case, a chair comes back looking even better than you imagined! And in my dreams, I get to keep said chair forever.
I actually liked the orange fabric on the before, which I'm pretty sure was the original fabric but it had a lot of wear and was fraying on the arms. This magenta ikat from S.Harris gives it a totally new and bold look and everyone is happy with the outcome. Keeping the original grid on the back would not have worked with the geometric pattern and as much as I love vintage furniture, the new solid back has a clean, fresh feel.
