I was finally able to recover the Mama chair!
It was a great shame to have to say goodbye to the lovely 50-60's floral but this wing back Parker armchair needed a new frock!
I flipped through countless fabric books, I wanted to honour the mustard colour of the original fabric but to have the whole chair in mustard may have been too much?
so I decided upon the grey with the mustard detail!
I love grey and yellow together....and I hope I don't tire of it?
She sit's nicely amongst the teak and leather furniture also in the room, a bit of sitting will soften the newly upholstered feel but I hope the look will be timeless?
Do you have a Mama chair?
Here is Mr Ouch's chair and Lady Turquoise, my other upholstered chair ...if your into chairs!
I taught myself a new macrame knot!.....the joys of goggle!
It's called the Chinese crown knot.
I see a macrame necklace idea brewing...what do you think?
I placed a TEAK, yes TEAK bead on for effect.
I would make a nice porcelain bead for it....is this idea worth persuing?
It would be a very bold piece to wear....but hopefully elegant too?
I use some hand dyed twine, it would take 12m of it to make a decent length necklace, so it would take commitment!
Plus it's time comsuming too! ....but so lovely to hold too!
If you have any opinions?
...feel free to express!
Yes a bought a 70's hairy scary macrame just for the beads, they are taken from the twine, washed and danish oiled for me to gaze at and feel :)
