The freshly reupholstered loveseat for our sunroom arrived late last week. I thought I'd share the before and afters.
I loved the previous (faded) color of the fabric but it was ultra ratty and silk isn't at its best in a room that gets hot. Also, the loose seat cushion was a disaster: a poorly-constructed mash-up of foam and feathers that always felt rigid and lumpy. Plus the seams that created the diamond pattern in the cushion fabric weren't very comfortable to sit on. This time 'round I wanted something playful and vibrant that would feel cool (or at least not sticky) against the skin.
The patterned fabric is a Nina Campbell cotton with a certain roughness to the texture. I really like the scale and the watercolor aspect of the design. Unfortunately I didn't have enough of that fabric to do the whole loveseat, so I picked out a solid yellow linen to contrast with it. I like that the pattern contrasts with the blues and grays that are already in the room. Next up will be shades for the windows, but I want to live with this a bit first.
