This was pictured in a feature article of David Hockney’s home in the June 1990 issue of Metropolitan Home and I’ve saved it for 20 years. Yes, I have an inspiration folder and obviously I’ve carried this around somewhere; note the fold lines!
This is an old dirty, faded chair that I bought in a used furniture store five or six years ago. It was originally pink and I’ve slip covered it once. That cover is now old, faded, and dirty but it is such a wonderfully comfortable chair I can’t give it up so, it’s due for a new dress.
I’ve shown the David Hockney picture because I’ve always wanted to cover a chair or couch in more than one fabric. I’ve tried unsuccessfully before, but this time I think I can do it.
While looking through my stash for fresh cording I ran across these left-overs from previous projects. I’ll give a prize the one who comes up with the best suggestion for their use. Cording pillows is out. Give me more ideas. Deadline – August 31.
