Mixing a Pair of Vintage Armchairs

Vintage chairs...not perfectly refinished, but perfectly suited to mix and use in a casual setting using coordinating fabrics. Maybe you would not want to use this pair of chairs in a formal room...but I love using "not- so- perfectly finished" pieces throughout a home. To me, it adds charm for a piece of furniture to show its age...and, it definitely makes it easier to have a "pet friendly" and "child friendly" home.

These chairs are searching for the perfect cottage-for sturdy seating in your dining or breakfast room, or to accent an existing space on your sunporch.

I made fitted slipcovers with ties for the backs and seats using a cottage floral cotton fabric. As an accent, I added bias cording using a terra cotta plaid. And, of course, mix and match pillows complete the set.
