This past October I tested the retail waters and opened a one-month-only store (aka pop-up). It was a great experience in every way, most of all I realized that in some way, shape or form, having a retail component is something that I really want to do and a great fit as a designer. As I work out the details, I am gradually building my inventory of refurbished antiques and home decor pieces.
One of the first things to go at the store was a pair of vintage chairs. They are so pretty! Here they are at the store before they were sold.
The two I bought were from a set of four. At the time I could only splurge on two, but hoped the other two would be available when/if the opportunity came. I am so happy that I just got my hands on them!!!
I thought that before I upholster them, I would offer the option of customizing to my readers. With the first pair I went with a Belgian linen in flax with a charcoal gray Belgian linen wide stripe. Double welting and the chair back are also charcoal. The price for the pair (in above fabric) is $3,400 or individually at $1,800. The options for customizing are endless, although I think the stripe really compliments the chair. Was toying with oyster linen with an orange stripe for a splash of color!
If you are interested in the chairs either as a set or separately, please let me know! Happy to send fabric swatches and discuss options!
Have a great weekend!
