I don’t know why more manufacturers don’t do this when it comes up upholstering chairs and sofas. First up – it looks great Secondly, if you have bought a vintage item and need to pay for re-upholstery (hello pink chaise longue trashed by Enid will cost a fortune to recover) then you can use something cheaper – but no less striking – for the back and sides. Now not all of us have rooms big enough to put furniture in the middle so you can see the back but you can often see the sides or even some of the back through the window. Am currently quite distressed by the sight of the 16yo’s lime green bean bag up against the spare room window which I can see every time I walk down the street.
So there’s a thought. Or you can buy it readymade. From Audenza, which many of you will know as Mia Fleur. They’ve changed their name. Stock’s still good though. Like this chair. It’s £1,395 but made by one person, in the UK and guaranteed for 10 years.
You might as well prepare yourself for the burnt orange but it IS coming. That millennial pink is getting peachier and, perhaps if you’re like me, you might want to bypass the peach and head straight for this. Gorgeous against a dark grey wall.
