Tan chenille club chairs

I made it back from my trip to California...the beach was great, I haven't slept that good in weeks. My mind was free from all thoughts and worries, and the sound of the waves helped too, as well as my two oldest boys sleeping in their own tent.

Anyhow...these chairs were for a client in Park City. Her designer chose a neutral chenille fabric, and we kept the skirt height the same.

Sorry more pics in the driveway, I have been swamped, so when possible Heber has been doing my drop offs for me...I can't expect him to take my pictures for me too.

I decided to do a double row of piping down the arms...because the original lines would only work for upholstry. I like the way it turned out. The fabric was a little thick, so I wasn't sure how it was going to lay...but it layed smooth and hugged the lines of the chair.

Here you can see the double piping on the arms

I did a set of here you can see them side by side after and before
Here's the original arm...that wasn't going to work for me with a slipcover, see how it's piped around the arm about 3 inches down?

Your work (still) amazes me. Beautiful job with a difficult fabric!

Hello Shelley,
Glad to hear the vacation was a success.

As always, the chairs are beautiful!

PS...I'm finishing up my sixth chair with a large ottoman and have ordered fabric for my sofa.
Reveals coming soon!
