Reupholstered Vintage Chair: A Custom Christmas Gift With Love

I think we can all agree that gifts from the heart are some of the most special and lovely gifts. Recently we had the immense honor of being a part of such a special gift, when a darling man came in at Christmas and purchased an “Amy Chair” experience for his wife.  Swoon!

He knew they had a chair at home that needed some attention, and he knew that his wife had been a longtime admirer of Amy’s artistic multi-fabric approach.  So he came in ahead of the holiday and arranged a meeting between his wife and Amy.  When she arrived in the store she was clearly over the moon, and could not be happier about the prospect of getting an “Amy Chair” of her very own.  

Through much discussion, they eventually settled on using a chair from our inventory.  We always are on the lookout for gorgeous old frames that need some love, and this one, in particular, was waiting for the right person to come along!  It was a perfect match, as the client loved all of the carvings on the exposed wood arms and even in its rough state, she could tell that the size would fit her perfectly.

    That was such a sick transformation, the chair looked almost irreparable! I especially loved the leaf design on the wooden leg of the chair and the stuffed birdy perched on the top of the chair, it just gives it such a suave and oriental look all at once. And yes, you are so correct, gifts from the heart are always special!
