This is a photography of David Hockney’s living room published in the June 1990 issue of Metropolitan Home. It’s been saved for these twenty years in my inspiration file and from the looks of the fold lines it’s also been carried around. I admire the use of several fabrics on the upholstered furniture and have always wanted to try it. Now’s my chance.
This old chair was purchased in a used furniture store about six years ago. I made a slip cover for it which you can see on the cushion and on the foot stool. The cover is now faded and dirty and it’s time for another one.
While looking for some fresh cording, I came upon all this left over cording from other slipcover projects. Can you think of a good use for them besides trim for pillow edges? I’ll give a prize to the best suggestion by August 31.
