Before and After: Eddie Ross's Chairs From Eek to Chic

Before and After: Eddie Ross's Chairs From Eek to Chic

Here we go again. Eddie Ross has accomplished yet another fabulous makeover. What impresses me most about Ross is his ability to see the potential in overlooked furnishings. With a habit of scouring flea markets, he really has a keen eye for affordable items that can be transformed. This time, he spotted four of these 1970s modern chrome chairs, but he said the "padding was like dry rot and the fabric a filthy micro-suede." So, he headed to his favorite fabric store and had them reupholstered in a cheerful (clean) fabric. To see the transformation,


Beautiful, right? I love how the clean, rectangular lines of the chair pair with the trellis pattern of the fabric. The fabric also looks great with the wallpaper. It seems like it'd be too busy and clashing, but it's an unexpected touch that works! So fun and chic. Hear about this project and see photos of two of the other chairs he upholstered in a different fabric here!
