So after my last post I can't believe that I didn't get a million emails with the subject line "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE COPYCATING THE CORRIGAN CHAIR!!!!!!!"
Was it a lack of faith? Or a lack of interest in the Corrigan? It's probably my most favorite thing Anthro has ever produced-- does nobody share the love?
This was one that even I had my doubts about. No doubts about the actual upholstery part of things-- what I'm doing is relatively straightforward. Mostly doubts in my technical support. And my machines delivered exactly as I thought they would. I had a moment where I really was afraid I was going to stroke out because it was SO frustrating. The industrial-grade machine's feed dogs are broken. The other machine-- I'm afraid I've done unspeakable things to the tension. Ack.
So-- do you remember this chair?
I think that I erroneously stated that I paid $25 for it. I did not. I paid $15.
So after a little inspiration in the form of this bad boy:
it's looking like this:
Nothing like the Corrigan, really, but I have to say that I do think it's pretty cute. And the buttons-- that's going to be the best part. Because vintage-fabric-covered tufting-- that I can do. Tomorrow. I think my sewing machine has driven me to drink.
And PS-- thoughts on the color of the frame? I went with this cream, but I'm wondering about other colors before I commit to tacking on the rest of the cushions. Black? Chocolate? Pale green? Opinions welcome!
