I have been enthralled with patchwork furniture for quite some time.
I have finally come up with a few places I could use some patchwork on furniture in my house.
I have a few pieces of furniture that are hard and not as comfortable to sit on as I would like them to be. I will be adding more padding to the cushions and then making new patchwork covers for the cushions.
This sofa is very bold and would only work for a certain style of decorating.
The sofa I intend to use patchwork on is a loose cushion Scandinavian sofa. I had new cushions made for it, and they were thinner and harder than what I wanted. I had them covered with black Ultrasuede. I will remove the covers from these cushions and add a lot more padding to them. I most likely will reuse the black Ultrasuede in the patchwork either combined with more Ultrasuede in other colors or other fabrics. The other options would be to cover each cushion with a different color of Ultrasuede.
I have a chair that is similar to this one. I will not cover the entire chair with patchwork. I will just use a tasteful assortment of fabrics to make patchwork to cover the cushions.
I also have an antique chair in quite a state of disrepair that is similar to this. It could be only used as a decorative accessory, maybe hung on a wall or from the ceiling. I intend to paint it and then use some fun patchwork on it. I haven't decided what room I will use it in yet, so that will affect the decision on what colors I will use.
This is not something I'll be doing soon. I just wanted to share some of my inspirations with you, and perhaps give you some ideas you could use.
Now I know at least a few of my friends who are reading this are rolling their eyes and saying, what is she doing now. You know who you are! Well, they will have to wait and see. They may just love the finished products!
