Chair luv

My current blog photo is a piece called "Marin".  It's from a series of mixed media I did quite a few years ago.  I love the idea of taking an old chair with great bones and redoing it into something fabulous.  Upholstering is something I've long wanted to try but haven't had the time, room, or resources to make it happen. My mind overflows with different design ideas. My mixed media chairs were kind of an alternative way to express them.  My love for a good wingback chair is well documented.  "Wingey" (below), was my first dishtowel design, and the first one I ever sold on my site and Etsy back in '07.
While perusing Etsy I came across Happy Chair.  Shawna Robinson, a formal Nascar driver,  runs the company. I was excited to see her offering some things on Etsy.  Her pieces are amazing! Is this love seat below the cutest or what?  Not really fitting for my decor, but I could so see it in a single girl's apartment, bedroom, or the sitting area of a boutique.  

Loving the combination of colors on this owl chair.

The "marry me" chair reminds me of one of my favorite things - -Ruffled nickers! :)

  1. How much fun would it be to design chairs like these for a living?
