Stylist's home office: The Chairs in all its "after" glory

7/17/2011 04:22:00 AM

Some have asked me for the reveal of this space, I know its been quite a while already! The office is actually done, just haven't gotten the chance to take pictures of the finish space -which is really really crucial for a big reveal! I'll get to that promise! :)

For now, I'll show you what we did with the chairs. You might remember I went chair hunting (here) for some pieces that has great bones that just need some refinishing and reupholstery.

Here's what we got, and what we did with them.

Love the shape of this chair. Those wood curves adds a little more character to the space.

The plan is to freshen up the chairs with white paint, reupholster them with a golden khaki fabric, and add a little contrasting fabric at the back.


The back view.
For the back, we used the same stripe fabric of the living room curtain right outside the space. It ties the two room together without being too obvious. 

This is the other chair. We got two of each design to play it up a bit, but used the same finish for a more formal appeal. I love the classic line of this piece.


The back.

Here they are together. 

The contrasting boxy / oval shape of the chairs, and the horizontal / vertical stripes gave the space a touch of playfulness without being over the top. I'm so happy with how they turned out!

Stay tuned for the reveal of this office. Hopefully its sooner than later. 


  1. I looooove these chairs!! The horizontal/vertical stripes with the box/oval shape look sooo nice!! Can't wait to see more from you!! :D

  4. did you do the re-upholstering yourself? any tips?

  5. @Happy Sole, I do reupholstering of simple guntacked cushions only, but in this case, I had this made by a upholsterer. :) Thanks
