Before and After: Living Room Armchair

I finally had an armchair reupholstered that I bought a while ago (okay, full disclosure: 2 years ago) at Brimfield.  It was delivered this morning, complete with a replacement for the caster that's been missing all this time (to add to my shame).



The new fabric is a woven wool-cotton blend that reminds me of an antique paisley shawl.  The piping is silk.

Custom sectional for the sunroom

The company that has been making my custom upholstered pieces just sent these photos of the sectional they're building for the sunroom.  They're delivering tomorrow and I'm very excited to see how it looks in the space.  It will be so great to have extra storage for garden equipment underneath the skirt, a slightly higher than normal seat for a better view out the windows, and a bit more support if we decide to add a dining height table.  Fingers crossed too that these down cushions are as comfy as the ones on the chaise that's currently up there.
