Ah! The humble chair. It is not simply a place to rest your weary bumm, but a spot to express a bit of yourself as well. Today’s post features three fabulously crafty folk and their interpretations of the (re)imagined chair.
First up is Heather Helseth of San Antonio, Texas. She recreates seating in whimsical fabrics at her shop Renewal Home Decor. “Each piece is created with reclaimed, vintage and salvaged materials, resulting in one-of-a-kind designs with history and individuality.” (via her site) Some pieces are covered in subdued textiles with just a hint of whimsy … and others allow for a
bit lot of “crazy”. Here are two of my favorites.
Next up, I’d like to introduce Dendro from Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. This shop is “Hell-bent on Hand-crafted” as stated in their profile. Dendro creates clean, industrial furnishings with steel and reclaimed/salvaged wood. In fact, wood from one of his pieces was sourced from an old black smith shop circa 1860. I particularly found it endearing that with each purchase, they will send you a short story sharing the wood’s past life. Although we are only featuring chairs today, Dendro creates other lovelies with reclaimed wood as well. This piece would make a great industrial bar stool!
