Customer makes – Chair upholstery

We love seeing and hearing all about our customers makes and so it’s always nice to be sent in pictures of what you have all been up to with the fabrics bought from us.

The latest picture we have been sent is from the very talented Linda who has used our crane fabric to reupholster her arm chair and it looks amazing! The fabric works really well with the piece of furniture and the before and after photo really shows how great the transformation is. She has managed to get the fabric tight around the chair and so the finished look is very effective, also the pattern matching on the cover buttons shows a great eye for detail so well-done Linda!

We sell upholstery supplies here at Livingstone Textiles along with loads of great fabrics so there is plenty to choose from if you have been inspired by Linda’s great work. The crane fabric is available on our website and in our Bridport shop, to buy it online or just find out more click here.

If you have made something recently with our fabrics and would like to share it with us then we would love to see it, you can send your pictures to us by email to people@livingstonetextiles.com.
