Louis/French Style Patchwork Armchair. Designer Fabrics
Working in collaboration with my lovely friend from The Weavers Workshop 33 we jokingly gave this project the working title of 'The 50 Shades of Grey Chair' and somehow it has stuck!
This Louis style chair is a good quality reproduction piece that is an elegant shape and in excellent condition. The woodwork is an unusual mix in it colourway - wood, gilt finish and grey tones. There are a couple of marks and scratches here and there but all in all it adds to the genuine shabby chic/distressed look.
We rifled our fabric stashes to find a fabulous combination of designer fabrics in various shades of grey and then pink for a stylish accent colour. Fabrics include velvet, linen, silk dupion, a vintage Liberty print - even soft leather suede.
The patchwork pieces have been carefully put together and then quilted to batting for an luxurious feel and to provide extra strength to the fabrics.
The chair then was stripped down and re-upholstered using traditional methods - the chair has a good sized seat which we would describe as comfortable, but firm. It is finished off with a double piping trim in a soft grey linen.
The back of the chair is covered in a soft suede leather.
The result is a totally unique piece of furniture. The designer fabric patchwork gives a contemporary vibe to this classic style of chair. It would look fabulous in a lounge, bedroom, hallway - in fact anywhere in your house.
