So here is the scoop: my business is all about seeing potential in the outdated or discarded. I love all things vintage, sometimes people are often surprised by my taste but thats the beauty in creativity, it allows me to be free and imaginative. There aren't many things that I think shouldn't be upholstered on furniture, call me crazy but I want my home to express me as much as my clothing. Here is a more modest project of mine that developed over the last three weeks.
I am in love with the timelessness of black and white and have been planning something B+W in my head and it finally happened. On Valentine's day I was heading down to the beach from my home and I came across this three piece set my neighbor had on the curb. My business thrives on curb finds... there isn't anything that cant be salvaged and I hate to waste. Check out these two chairs and matching ottoman (the cushions were even down). This set is beyond comfy:
Next came the fabric draping, I had three different prints on hand that I was thinking about using for a wingback chair but this new set needed my attention first. One chair sold to a custom client looking for a Cloud 9 replica so the Chair and Ottoman went from three to a two piece set. I decided on a base of black vinyl, seat cushions would reverse from black vinyl to white and black plus signs and the ottoman would be covered in a black and white arrow print. The Cloud 9.1 was created by dying a white cotton fabric with indigo blue dye in a Shibori inspired fashion, her cushions reverse to solid white.
