My designer client wanted to redo this chair for her man client. It was his grandparents chair. Julie was redoing his bachelor pad and wanted to use some sentimental items.
Chair--Before--worn mint velvet.
Chair--AFTER--Brushed Menswear plaid with contrasting navy piping to frame it and make it "manly". The brushed fabric made for a beautiful cozy chair.
Plaid is the most difficult to match--you need to try as much as possible to match it both ways! I offer tips on how to match plaid in my "Get it Covered" Advanced Slipcovering guide .
I loved that we were able to bring this chair back to life. Julie always picks out great fabrics!
Side Note---I don't have any! Just enjoying life back at a normal pace!
