When chairs go to sleep.....

Queen.Anne.never.looked.so.good

Just a mock-up of what I'll likely be lounging on at Quilt Market.

  2. This is so fun! I love it -- the juxtaposition between the classic lines of the piece and the great, modern colors of the fabric... beautiful!

  7. There's some chair-envy going on over here... the furniture is staging a revolt. I guess I've been way too boring. Time to order some of THAT fabric!!!

  8. Oh my, I have to wing chairs almost exactly like this in my office but sadly they are covered in a cream stretch suede, now you have me thinking they need a makeover!!! Lovely.

  9. WOW - can my chairs take a nap at your place? Here they just wake up with dog hair, cat hair, and/or spilled juice.

  12. Yummmy! That looks fantastic. I have a chair just like that. Would you, could you please post the amounts of each fabric needed, just in case just maybe someone out here may want her ugly country blue chair to look like yours?? BTW, I am putting together a quilt with some of your fabrics from a previous line (Bohemian I think) and I can't wait to finish it. I love your new fabrics as well!!

  14. The bird collage print is gorgeous! It definitely gives a fresh look to those vintage styled chairs. Can't wait to see the actual finished product. :-)

    Ah, and I could have used that lovely aqua/olive clamshell print in my latest doll that I made. Those are perfect colors! Hmm, I still have some of my other fabrics left over so I can try it again with yours when it comes to the stores.

  15. That is almost too gorgeous to look at! Oh my gosh! Would that I still had chairs around here.

    Well, I'll think of something.

    I could stare at that for hours.

  19. Goodness me, I'm about as conservative as they get when it comes to decorating. I think that perhaps anonymous can't see that it is exactly the "thinking outside the box" that makes this piece absolutely stunning.

  21. Sometimes "anonymous" says it all, thanks all for your comments :)

  23. Hi Anna,

    I have a custom slipcover business. Ladies, There is no need to reupholster your furniture. Just call your local slipcover artist. I would love to be asked to make this. Very fun to work with multiple fabrics.
