Modern Parisian Apartment: Simple Office Chair Redo

7/27/2013 10:07:00 PM

I sometimes put on things on my moodboards without even knowing where to get it. It's just that I wanted to have a certain look and I'll try to get it no matter what.

For instance, for the home office on the left....
I included a turquoise office chair for that pop of color in that area. No idea where to get that one. Haha... And even if I found an exact chair, it might not be within client's budget.

So simple solution is to purchase any ordinary office chair which shape I like. This one has a high-back for comfortability, but has a slim profile. Perfect. 

Off I went to the upholsterer and picked the perfect color. I have gone through a lot of swatches without finding the turquoise I wanted, it's either too blue or too green. But finally.... 

A day after, I got this.

So happy with how it turned out. A very affordable alternative with a custom look. Love the color, love the shape.. and I love the wallpaper!
If you're looking for a certain look for a piece of furniture, don't be confined to what is available, you can always alter. Paint and reupholster your way to your dream home. :)

This apartment is almost done, all furniture are in, and we've already installed frame gallery and artwork! I'll be shooting this home next week. Stay tune!
