Chair Couture: antiques and vibrant color

Margaret Elman of Chair Couture recovers Italian and French antique chairs and sofas with contemporary fabrics. These chairs in their updated version add bright color and impact against the classic lines. Nice mix! I'm normally not enthusiastic about French neoclassic lines, but they really work here, since it's not over-the-top. Her home has been featured in a few magazines- this particular feature was in German Elle Deco and Home Beautiful, with photos were taken by Ngoc Minh.

chair couture is such a neat site, i've known about her designs for awhile now and have been a fan of her work. HER color choices are fantastic and clever.
