Given our love of taking the old and making it new again, over the next few weeks we thought we’d show you some of the transformations we’ve undertaken with discarded or recycled furniture. We’ve used our own No Chintz fabrics as well as fabrics from designer collections we stock in store.
Lisa found this retro vintage chair on ebay. With its original dusky, pink vinyl upholstery still in tact, this 50-60’s era armchair was in great condition.
To modernise and “funk” it up we chose the Marimekko fabric Pirput Parput, colour black & white to cover the body of the chair and No Chintz fabric Ruff, colour curry for the seat cushion.
This comfortable armchair has been transformed into something modern and chic but retains its retro roots.
So, before you leave an old armchair out for council pickup, consider transforming it with new upholstery… these old chairs have great bones and the designs have really stood the test of time.
