White Ruffly Linen Slipcovers - Chic Unique

Wow! I have a lot of pictures to share with you in this post. First I have added pictures of the white ruffly linen slipcovers I made for the Antique and Art on the Square show in Elyria, OH. If you would like more information and directions to the show Saturday, June 2 click on the Chic Unique link.

I delivered four slipcovered parsons chairs to Chic Unique for the show and I have around 20 more available. The slipcovered chairs are priced at $169.00 each. If you buy four or more then the price is $160.00 each.  This is a great deal - you pay for the slipcover and get the chair for free.  You can contact me if you are interested in the slipcovered chairs and are not able to make it to the show. 

When I dropped off the slipcovers at Chic Unique, Carrin invited me to her house to photograph a pair of parson chair slipcovers I made for her awhile ago. I was in for a great surprise.  Carrin lives in a beautiful ( I would call it a victorian style) home.  Her home is beautifully decorated.  Carrin has great taste and that is what makes Chic Unique so popular.

Here are a couple photos of the linen parson chairs I made for Carrin.

This is a shot of the whole room where the parson's are located.  This room blew me away.  I loved all the white upholstery and soft furnishings.

I loved everything but I was really drawn too this iron settee.

Parsons in Linen and Sale at Chic Unique

These parson chair slipcovers are done in a natural colored linen/cotton mix. The fabric was beautiful and looked even better after I pre-washed it. The customer wanted the back scroll outlined with cording and I love the way they turned out.

Here is a closeup of the linen/cotton fabric

This week I will be having fun working on some parsons chair slipcovers for Chic Unique's next Antiques and Art in the Alley sale which will be on June 2.  I will have 12 white linen slipcovered parsons chairs available for sale.  I will be sharing pictures soon. Chic Unique has beautiful, hand painted vintage & antique furniture and accessories for home & garden. Chic Unique is located at 120 Middle Ave, Elyria, OH 44035. Below is a small sample of what Chic Unique will have at the show.

Anniversary Office Chair Slipcover

My customer wanted to give his wife a custom embroidered office chair slipcover for their anniversary.  We used a solid gray panel for the embroidered area and then matched a floral pattern with a gray background to compliment the existing upholstery since we were not going to cover the arms.

Here are the before and after pictures :

There was also a custom embroidered monogram with anniversary date on the back closure.

The custom embroidery was sewn by Stitch Cleveland which is located in Lakewood, OH. It is run by Heidi and Megan, a mother-daughter team of seamsters.   At Stitch Cleveland you can take a group or private sewing lesson, join a club, or peruse their selection of colorful fabrics and notions. If you are in the Cleveland area check out their shop.  It is fun to stop in because they are always in the middle of creating something interesting and colorful from clothing to quilts. 

Happy 17th Anniversary Brenda and Russ!!
