My vintage chair addiction was spurred on this weekend when I spotted this Jetson-esque lounge chair at a local reuse centre.
The slope of the back makes it super comfy and the curvy, wood arms add mega-personality.
Regardless of its endearing qualities, this chair is a total do-over!
The wood frame is badly scratched and the upholstery has seen better days.
An upholstery job, like this, requires a professional. But, if you were so inclined, you could take on the wood restoration job yourself.
Tip: The woodwork should be done prior to the upholstery work. It’s easier to maneuver new fabric around a recently refinished frame than it is to sand & stain the wood around new fabric.
Your fabric options are endless and would depend on your décor, your tastes, and, most importantly, your risk tolerance!
I always prefer to make a bold statement with a one-of-a-kind accent chair!
A fabric, like this, with a crisp, black & white, wiggly, stripe effect, would bring this piece to life. Run it vertically for maximum impact! Finish the chair with white buttons & piping and you’ve got yourself a modern show-stopper!
