Wingback chair

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Some of y'all might remember my wingback chair that was getting re-upholstered. Yes, No, Maybe? Well Saturday hubby finally went to pick it up. It had been ready since 3 weeks ago
but I had another chair that needed to be reupholstered and I needed extra time to find the perfect
fabric. It would have been insane of the hubs to drive 2 hrs. to pickup a chair only to drive another 2 hrs. to dropoff another chair.

The last time I had anything professionally upholstered was my Room & Board dining room chairs that I took to a different fabricator. He did a wonderful job but somehow I came across this other shop and based on his reviews, prices and previous work...I thought I'd give him a shot. As you can imagine I was slightly nervous but once I arrived at his store I knew my chair was in good hands.

Here is the Before and After.  
 
 
It could not be more perfect!
 
I am so thankful to have found him! I vouche from this day on he will be my go-to-guy. Thank you Hakan! You can see some more of his amazing work here.

The fabric is a beautiful slate grey linen courtesy of AVISA Organics.

Right now it sits against the corner of my living room wall that I'm in the process of painting. I'm not too fond of the legs so I plan on changing them to these...

I also have a few fabric options in mind for a pillow but I'm waiting for more pieces to come together.
 
I'll be back to show y'all progress of our living room and some other things I'm working on.

    1. Thanks Kelly! Upholstering furniture is something I won't dare consider doing myself. I rather leave it to the pros. Considering we live in the DMV area, you would think his prices would be high but there not.....lucky me! Hehe :)
