When I saw this chair from Anthropologie I knew I wanted to try and recreate the leather/fabric detail. Mixing up a classic combination always appeals to me. This chair lists for $1498.00.
I really just wanted to see if I could recreate the leather detail using items I had in my studio. I knew I didn't have any Ikat fabric, so I decided to make it a more of a neutral chair but with the leather (in this case Pleather) detail.
Enter this beauty:
It only had 6 screws to undo to release both top and bottom cushions. I unscrewed the whole thing in no time. I decided to leave the fabric on the chair back and just make a slip cover for it. Using items that I had left over from other projects, I made an envelope cover.
I just love how this turned out! It is so pretty and fresh and I think the leather/fabric combo looks great. And, my chair cost $3.99!
