Houndstooth Club Chairs

These two desperately need a stint in rehab.



Top quality, but very dated with chintz upholstery that was surely the envy of all the neighbors in 1986. My customers have recently moved in to a beautiful new home with a southern-traditional vibe. These chairs are set to occupy a charming little nook in their kitchen. She spied this red & white cotton houndstooth and was instantly smitten.

After:



Aren't they sweet? But wait... there's more. Here's another chair from the same house that is getting the houndstooth treatment. This time in yellow.

And some pictures in their home...



The fabric is "Square Pegs" by Robert Allen Designs. It's quite heavy and my serger hated it, but it hugs the furniture beautifully. Happy ending!

  1. I LOVE houndstooth. That pattern looks perfect for those chairs. I like the updated skirt, too. Lovely work as always, Pam.

  2. Leathers Interior Design chair has that great 50's styling, but more importantly fits the bill for comfort. The back and seat cushions are nice and not too soft. A good arm height lends itself to a good casual sit. The back is a little too pitched, but we didn't mind that as it added a lot to the design.
