I found this slipper chair on the sidewalk last fall. It was Providence. I had decided I needed a chair in the bedroom--after all, Dave had one, and I had to resort to standing while we chatted or sitting on the bed. I checked out Pottery Barn--they had some nice ones, but were Mucho Bucks. And then, at dusk, while driving down the street on trash clean-up day was this chair and a broken desk. I stopped, opened up the back and put the chair in and drove off, thrilled with my score. Shades of New York--we used to find lots of treasures on those days.
I had intended to upholster it myself, but instead took it to a professional, and what you are seeing is a result of that decision. Otherwise, it would still be upside down on top of the workbench outside in the garage, instead of sitting in my bedroom. I used Amy Butler's fabric from her most recent line--a heavyweight twill just for home decorating. The total cost was a fraction of Mucho Bucks.
This is the fun part--when taking photos for this post, I noticed this sweet little detail: a little flower centered on the button at the upper back of the chair.
