Earlier this year I inherited three of these retro 70's lounge chairs from my Mother who was moving to a smaller home. There were originally six of these chairs which were purchased to go in my parents shoe shop and then once that was sold three of them ended up in my parents home.
That lovely faded yellow boucle` fabric which was once a bright "70's" orange had to go and the wooden arm rests were in desperate need of some 'TLC'.
And here they are, finally finished with 3 different but much more cheerful Scandinavian prints purchased at Andshine on Etsy.
The metal chair frames were given a fresh coat of blue/grey spray paint. Much nicer than their original dreary brown don't you think ;-)
I'm really pleased with how the arm-rests turned out which I sanded back then applied 3 layers of polyurethane to bring out the lovely wood grain.
I like them all but this pretty butterfly print is my favourite and is designed and printed by an old Swedish fabric company called "Klippan", a family run business that was established back in 1879.
