Chair Makeover on Design*SpongeAll roadways trigger Instagram for me personally today. Whether we discover something that inspires myself, or learn that some body I’m mailing with runs a feed I currently follow, those small square frames seem to be the most popular denominator for the innovative community at this time. And today’s first makeover is an instance of linking the dots between a online contact and an Instagram feed I was currently after.

1_before copyWe can’t bear in mind how I first-found textile designer Jenny Sibthorp‘s feed, however it’s a wealth of stunning handprinted habits with a seaside theme. Based in the Isle of Purbeck in England (residence to some other of the best ‘grammers), Jenny put up her own screen publishing company a year ago and today works in a farm studio in which she recently expanded to printing her fabrics for furniture. Her very first big test ended up being this gorgeous seat, which she remade all the way through (including her own fabric!) together with the assistance of the woman workshop neighbor, that is a professional upholsterer. From little tufted right back buttons to your lovely blue-and-tan linen fabric, the last project is a testimony to both the great bones of an old chair together with modern feel and look of Jenny’s textile design. I always love a good “old-meets-new” tale, and this makes myself need raid every thrift shop in upstate ny to get a frame i could find out and practice on. Consider more of Jenny’s pictures after the jump!
