Chair Makeover Time

There have been plenty of chair makeovers happening over at Lark & Lily Interiors these days.  Up next... a double chair makeover!  We're helping out with a top to bottom house renovation... and getting to help source furniture too.  A few weeks ago I was at a thrift store here in town and found a pair of super cheap, super comfy arm chairs.  They need a bit of help, so we're getting custom slipcovers made to give them new life for the living room of this home.

Here's the plan:

1.  the "before" picture of the two chairs.  Pretty basic, straightforward design.  Easy to slipcover.
2.  The fabric that's been selected.  We wanted a basic geometric that would complement the grey living room sofa and were looking something really reasonably priced.  When you've got a house to renovate and furnish-- you've gotta try to keep things affordable!
3.  Chair inspiration from this living room designed by Kelly Deck.  Loving a pair of matching chairs.  We decided to make a new cushion for the back of our chairs-- kind of like these ones.  Instead of an over sized "T cushion" we're going to make a separate rectangular cushion that will add a bit of height to the chair and give it a more casual feel.
4.  Slipcovered chairs from Serena & Lily.  We're loving the geometric pattern on this particular chair and the separate back cushion.

The fabric is set to arrive any day now... and we've got a "spot" booked in with our seamstress.  When they're done I'll let you know how they turn out!
