This gorgeous photo of the Pistachio Chairs shows no indication of the endless preparations and sweat equity that went into it!
Last year, Maribel Weisz of Antique Resources and I collaborated on a curated selection of antique chairs reimagined in new upholstery fabrics. These chairs in their “old lady” upholstery were not appealing to visitors to Maribel’s actual nor virtual shops. In February of 2022, I told Maribel the story of a couple I worked with in a historic home. As we updated the downstairs, a pair of needlepoint-embroidered Victorian chairs were a point of contention. The wife loved them–the husband felt the opposite.
