Well, here we go. Months ago I was trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my life now that my little one is in school full-time and on her way. For many years I was a therapist, counseling young people while doing arts, crafts, and woodwork in my spare time. I would have a couple of art shows a year and sell some craft here and there. Like many moms, I wanted a new career path where I could do what I love, what I'm skilled at, and have a flexible schedule for my family.
I have decided to put my art/design eye, and my craft/woodworking skills to use with lovely old chairs. I find these chairs everywhere and anywhere. They are usually pretty beat up....years of guck collected on their finish. Upholstery worn and tuckered out. I gently sand and scrape the old finish off, sometimes leaving some of the beautiful patina behind, other times scrubbing her bare. I reupholster them using Pendleton wool fabrics. I love these fabrics for so many reasons: they speak to my Northwest roots; they wear well; they feel amazing; they are timeless; nothing else compares!
These chairs are special to me. They all have a story. They carry the memories of love, laughter and tears in their old sturdy bones. They were made from skilled hands with attention to detail. They are brought back to life with the reverence they deserve. When scouting these chairs I make sure they are well made and absolutely must be comfortable. I'm so excited to share these lovely treasures with you and I hope you get the pleasure of owning one.
