Reupholstered Arm Chair in Mullica Hill NJ

Posted on February 6, 2014 at 9:30 PM

How to provide an accent piece in a minimalist setting without stepping too far out of the neutral/natural color theme?  Reupholster a vintage open arm chair in Elephant Ears fabric by Robert Allen with a neutral pallete of linen and grey!  The large botanical pattern jumps right out from the rectilinear architectural elements in the room.  The color ties back to the grey-ice walls.


The wooden parts of the chair were a colder brown than the door and chestnut trim, so we toned them a little warmer and laid down a light coat of satin lacquer to keep the color theme consistant.  The fabric was a bold move, but seems at home in this revived farmhouse.  Reupholstered and delivered to Mullica Hill, NJ.
