This Louis XVI armchair (France, c. 1880) turned out so beautiful that I may just have to keep it for myself.
Originally, it was a brown piece. I felt the gorgeous beaded and acanthus carvings needed a lift, so I did a swedish finish on it. Although I regularly update upholstery, I decided that the original chartreuse/gold silk damask was absolutely perfect as is. What do you think?
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend wherever this post finds you.
