Finally getting back to that Selig chair we picked up.
Back in July, I wrote about a Danish chair that we picked up in this post. It was a great deal for a classic piece and we have been planning to reupholster it for awhile. Unfortunately, we have not actually gotten around to reupholstering it yet, but have started making some progress: fabric shopping.
Recently, we got a JoAnn near us which expanded our in-person fabric shopping options. Still, we tend to do online shopping and then attempt to go see a few of our finalists in person. This piece will be going in our Reading Room when it is completed and we had a plan for a blue-green fabric to tie in colors in the Reading Room and Dining Room. Our other requirement was a bit of texture. Anything from a chunky, tweedy fabric to something with a subtle pattern in the weave. Just something with a little interest.
After looking through a lot of fabrics online, this is our current top choice:
It is Crypton fabric’s Herringbone Blue Bill. Online, the color seems perfect and the weave has some interest. 100% polyester which I don’t always love, but online it really looks like it has the potential to be an eye-catcher. Unfortunately, JoAnn did not carry this particular fabric in store (even in a sample size) when we made a visit there this weekend, so we have ordered an 8″x8″ sample and are eagerly awaiting it at our house and crossing our fingers that it works or it’s back to square one.
Can’t wait to get this project behind us sometime this spring!
