Slipcovered wooden chair

This is a chair that is covered very simply, yet in an elegant way. There is no welt cording on the cushion or the chair cover. The body piece has a Velcro closure and helps with the pared-down look. It is actually a rush bottomed chair and is owned by an adorable toddler that can't touch the floor when sitting on it yet! His mother arranged for us to cover it to be used as his desk chair in his bedroom. As he grows, he will be able to use this classic chair to sit, color and cut; then later to do his high school studies. His mother brought us a picture she had seen in a magazine of a similar chair and said she knew we were the people for the job to create the fat and crested cushion. This customer is "all about" the crest on her cushions! ...We are too.

Slipcover in Linen with Button Detail

This is a heavy washed linen slipcover on a cute little slipper chair. The full view picture makes it look a bit "catawumpus", but it's's the angle that I took the picture from! ...I guess I was going for the surreal look.
The next picture is of the button detail. This is a detail usually found in couture clothing items. The button holes are set into a small welt cording. Very tailored and beautiful. I really love this.
We set the skirt slightly on the floor for a casual, yet elegant look.
