We got an email from the talented owners of Barefoot Dwelling, a small vintage shop in Maryland. They found and gave a full head-to-toe makeover to this worn out Adrian Pearsall-designed chair. Take a peek at their magic…

We're writing to share a really cool before and after on an amazing 1960's Slim Jim Chair by Craft Associates. We picked up this chair in DC at a very cool estate sale and restored it for a customer for her newly purchased Manhattan apartment. Obviously it required complete re-building and we just love the Studio Bon fabric Fuzz-Taffy with the walnut frame.

Thanks for sharing the project — it's always good to see what professionals can do to give a vintage piece a whole new life!
