The New Deconstructed Chair

I wanted to introduce you guys to a new [very old] chair that I got last week from a good friend of mine. My friend Holly sells at our shop, The Found Cottage, & every time she comes to drop stuff off at the shop I want it all. Like, really. I want it all. Well, last week when she dropped off at the shop I spotted a chair of my dreams that she had re-covered & I about died. I took some quick cell phone photos of it today in our back living room to show you…

I don’t know about you, but I am obsessed with the deconstructed chair look. Like, really obsessed so this chair caught my eye right away. I also had been looking for a chair to go in this back living room area that we just kind of threw together last week to pair with our Ikea sectional & so when this baby showed up it was a match made in heaven. I love how this chair gives a casual cottage/farmhouse vibe to the space. Holly sent me some of the before photos of how this chair looked before she worked on it & I was amazed…

& how it looks today in our living room after tons of hard work & love…

A lot of you may know Holly from Hollyhocks & Hydrangeas as I’ve talked about her many times here on the blog. I shared her DIY window greenhouse last summer here on the blog & a lot of you were obsessed with it like me. She’s a creative soul & truly inspires me daily. Anyways on to this chair, Holly used a mix of vintage fabric from grain sacks  & a ticking stripe blue an white fabric to upholster the chair after stripping all of the old fabric off. I love this mix of fabric between the ottoman and the chair & think it’s pure perfection. I feel like this chair looks like it could have been a piece that we found in our 1800’s farmhouse & that’s pretty cool in my book. I love all the exposed wood detail mixed in with the fabric combination. It’s just the perfect little chair for this space.

 Bonus? It’s comfortable too. Which is quite important as well. Just ask Bella & Bear. This room is far from finished, but in the mean time we are making it look great before we can start the demo on the flooring because you know that’s how we roll around here. Oh, and that pillow on the chair? That was made by another one of my friends in our shop, Sue from Fabric Scout Studio. What do you guys think about our new [old] chair? I know this look isn’t for everyone, but I think my heart melts every time I see one. Holly did such a great job giving this chair a makeover & having work from your friends in your home is quite special. Thank you guys for stopping by the blog today & be sure to find me on Facebook & Instagram for more behind the scenes. xx
