A small update on the bamboo chairs

I won't be able to tackle this project until late Feb / early March but wanted to give you a small update on where it is at.

I picked up these bamboo armchairs for a steal. The cushions are still in good condition but they have faded badly and need to be recovered. I think the previous owner kept the chairs in the sun.

My upholsterer will recover the cushions in new dacron and fabric and finish them with box piping instead of the centre piping as it is now. It will be a neater finish with no gathering.

I'm toying with whether to indulge in one of the fabric choices above or look at other alternatives. I don't mind indulging as the chairs will be taking centre stage in the living room.

  4. I love the top left and the bottom fabric.I'd like to see to see a bigger piece of the top right fabric. I love bold fabric on statement furniture. I agree the cushions will look better without gathering and box piping. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

  5. Viv - i have only just begun following your blog and i'm loving it. I am a fashion designer and i teach product design aswell. I am a true frustrated interior addict and love re vamping vintage finds. I was wondering how you prep your furniture before re painting?? And what type of paint would you suggest to paint 1) vintage cane 2) mid century modern sideboard. Loooove your ideas and house

  6. I have one in my room ready for a reno. How do you suggest to revamp the cane? I have sanded it back with 180 grit sandpaper, but was wondering if it's possible to oil it? Or can you recommend another varnish etc? Thanks!
