|18th century wingback in a Brunschwig & Fils fabric|
I agonized over the fabric choices if you read the previous post. This fabric seemed like the perfect solution as I felt that an antique like this should be done in a silk damask, which would feel too formal for the project. The fabric had to be knit-backed, as it was a linen. That ran about $90, well worth the cost.
|I selected the fabric used in the valences over the windows.|
|The finished chair! I left the windows in the photo--yes, it is snowing on March 22 in Portland, Oregon. The heat|
wave isn't all over the entire country. It's pretty much rained or snowed every day since the first of Feb.
|I had twill tape and nailheads added to the bottom to give the chair a more casual feel.|
|I had an ottoman made to match. The chair is comfortable, and the large "wings" keep you warm on a cold drafty day--just like 200 years ago!|
I thought you would enjoy seeing the final product! It is not in the intended room/house, but it does look nice with the area rug.
