These chair were a test of patience for sure. These were for a friend of mine and they were actually the first job I lined up to a paying customer. Fabric selection was tricky though, she knew what she wanted and had a really hard time finding it. 8 months and what felt like a million samples later she had found the perfect combination.
They started out as this blue/green velvet
They were in really great shape except some wear on the legs, check out the difference a little gel stain makes.
I only had one glove and it was really old so it broke when I put it on, my thumb ended up as a stain covered casualty but it was better than nothing.
Here are the finished chairs. And they're really lovely right? Very classy and understated...
Until you flip them around. I love the surprise of the pattern around the back.
These chairs were such a hit I think I have some similar ones coming soon.
