We recently reupholstered 3 antique pieces in contrasting bold hues and prints for a modern twist.
We started by upholstering the antique sofa in a denim blue color, along with a yellow ottoman. This client also requested that we create two custom throw pillows, which we did in a navy pattern with yellow piping and a yellow reverse side, the same yellow as the ottoman. As a final touch, we upholstered an antique armchair in the same patterned material on the throw pillows.
The result is a living room that looks cohesive, without being matchy-matchy. The fresh fabric updates keep the antique furniture from looking dowdy.
