The Possibilities....

Are would you cover this chair, the Cantrell Chair by Suzanne Kasler for Hickory Chair? Or would you? I love a textured linen with nailhead trim for a classic look. But sometimes it's fun to have a "statement" chair. To give a fairly traditional form some personality. Did you know that wing chairs were created to block cold drafts in homes before we had indoor heat? That explains why more modern wing chairs have only slight "wings," only there for the affect.

Wouldn't it be fun to cover it in this fabric by Quadrille, shown below in reverse on dining chairs in this month's House Beautiful.

Need a new upholstery piece? You will actually save money (and time) by hiring a professional designer vs. ordering or buying from a large store like Pottery Barn. Designers are trained to help you find the right piece for your space and can usually offer them for less because we are not covering overhead costs and marketing expenses. It is also much higher quality furniture construction and will last for years to come.
