I like the juxtaposition of raw stencilled fabric with a pretty painted chair
There are a few things to consider with this option-
1) They need a really good wash first as the coffee aroma will be pretty ingrained- a cold wash will do it, but you may lose a little of the color intensity, although that’s no bad thing for an artfully aged look.
2) The weave needs to be reasonably tight or the covers will catch and fall into holes very quickly
3) The fabric must be soft enough to sit on comfortably without itchy bits. “that’s a terrible rash you have there, is it catching?”
4) They will need a good lining fabric to give body and make the fabric sit right.
This is still just a possibility, I have already, stashed away, two other options for these chairs,
I have so many textiles in my French house stash now that it is getting silly. I need to curb my magpie tendencies.
Decisions, decisions, this option-right- would be a talking point.
And, yes, I know it’s not Thursday yet….
