Something old becomes new...

I stumbled upon 2 incredibly elegant but dilapidated carver chairs some time ago and was extremely delighted to discover that they are genuine Parker furniture, a feel of the curved arms had me seduced, despite the damaged velvet fabric (before pic)... a project!



So here's the after of the first of the 2. A re-upholster in black linen, the ampersand feature back rest panel is a piece by Auntie Cookie, and on the reverse... bold black and white stripes - delicious!
Now, to keep or sell? If you love it as much as I, check it out at Shop Handmade (Canberra city) before I decide to buy it back myself!!
Love Nina x

*Many thanks to Design Sponge for featuring my chair!
