The Chair (Re)imagined   1 comment

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!

Our final artist is a (re)imaginer from Washington D.C., U.S.A.  Serena Appiah, mother of three stinkin’ adorable boys, turned her love of bargain shopping and renovation into a super groovy site called ThriftDiving.com.  You can learn about her process, purchase pieces, and get inspired.  I dig her so much I signed up for emails!  Take a look at the ugly duckling she nurtured into a sophisticated swan.  So jealous of her talent!

That’s it for today folks.  I hope you hop on over to these sites and enjoy their labors of love.  Thank you for visiting my little corner of the blog world.  Until next time, keep (re)imagining!
Love,

  1. Thanks Bobbie for featuring my website! It is a labor of love and I love working with clients on custom designs to suite their home or office. Giving new life to vintage and disguarded furniture is a passion and a tangible way to live green while growing the American economy, one chair at a time.

    I will definitely check out the other two sites you featured as well. Have a great weekend!

    Heather
