Maybe it’s the relentless onslaught of Midwestern winter, or just a yearning for more tropical temps, but this gorgeous Ikat screamed “take me home” last week, and so I did!
Admittedly, I’ve been in a “hot” color state of mind. You’ll recall the plum and fuchsia palette from this post last week on a home office renovation!
I unearthed this fabric on a road trip to a favorite textile haunt last week. It should be perfect for this armchair, which has been presiding over a pile in the garage since last fall!
The chair was a gift from pal Shayne Barsness, a vintage maven who has recently focused her considerable talents onto the jewelry-making arm of her business. Shayne & Coco uses castoff and vintage elements to create the most amazing necklaces, bracelets and earrings! Check out this cool Shayne & Coco bracelet, created around an old Oddfellows Lodge medallion with vintage cabochon pearls:
Love! This chair, like the bracelet elements, will be re-created as something fun!
It needs a coat of paint (still mulling! Sand? White? Palest apricot?) and a new cushion, front and back. I may reshape the profile of the seat back, too. This fabric will rock the new look!
Stay tuned for the final product, destined for the fabulous Foxglove Market and Studio on Grand Avenue in St. Paul! Wishing you warm temperatures and hot fabrics!
