Pair of wingbacks and a round ottoman

This client was ready for a change!!! Her designer jumped at the chance to redo these hunter green wingback chairs. They chose a neutral lighter weight chenille for the chairs and accented them with a steel blue chenille pillow that we put a boxpleat ruffle on.

Her ottoman was a great find on (like craigslist) for $50. It was a bit too tall so she removed the wheels. That is why the skirt is flared out in the before picture. I then cut off the skirt and slipcovered it in some cheetah chenille fabric. I decided to clean up the lines and did a band around the top and copied the original skirt that pleated every 13" all the way around.

Wingback chair BEFORE


AFTER...the set of wingback and the round cheetah ottoman. The fabric was pretty thick on the ottoman, so the tufting didn't really show through. If it did...we were going to lay a thin piece of batting down before we put the slipcover on.

I love how the room turned out! The pillows and the ottoman finished it off for me.
