How to transform old furniture from out-dated to updated!

Chair got a facelift

 

Furniture shopping is a long, arduous process that no one is particularly fond of. It takes time and sometimes that time can be better-spent upgrading pieces you already own. For a facial lift in your own home, instead of going back to the drawing board start with something you already have and upgrade it. An old chair can easily be refinished, reupholstered, and its entire look manipulated into something modern, edgy, and quite different than its roots. See the attached pictures for proof of this beautiful transformation. We gave this old thing a metallic finish and reupholstered the seat with a bolder pattern. The chair went from a more understated posture to an eye-catching design. With the amends, we were able to move the chair around the house and into another room, knocking two birds with one stone and essentially reimagining multiple spaces. Editing and altering older furniture not only elevates individual pieces but works as a more economical, smarter renovation of your home.

Dining room in Lisle Illinois get a face lift!

Plain walls, cream colored upholstered chairs, and naked windows was not what my client wanted for her dining room!

The color scheme: She expressed the desire for warm bright yellows, greens, burned tangerine for a preferred color scheme.

The design: Traditional, but simplified.

Window Treatment: Privacy is important, simple yet elegant draperies, not too traditional, more transitional.

Walls: A modern clean finish.

Here are the solutions: Paint the walls in wide strips in two shades of a slightly muted yellows for bringing energy and stimulating the appetite.

The chairs reupholstered in two different fabrics, the back in a brick colored velvet and a tapestry in yellows greens and burned orange.

Hunter Douglas shades for privacy with drapery panels in soft yellow silk, trimmed in a scrumptious modern trim. The panels added luxury, warmth and the finishing touch the window needed.
