Chair Makeover #2 Danish Modern


 I was fortunate enough to receive this great mid-century modern teak armchair from my kid's grandma, Sigrid who is from Denmark. It has a metal plate with this info under the frame:


I thought it was fitting then, to have it covered it in some great linen I picked up at the Albert Cyupmarket in Amsterdam. I love the combo of warm and cool tones and the curves of the arms. New life for an old classic...thanks Sigrid ;) I hope you approve.

The chair looks beautiful! The colour of the fabric is perfect with the wood :-)

Oh, it's lovely! I can almost feel the smoothness of the teak arms and the oh-so-slight "nubbliness" of the linen. Beautiful!
