Using Quilts for Upholstery

Using Quilts for Upholstery

Nothing says old New England like a lovely quilt. (Well, sure there are a few other quintessential New England icons that could fit that sentence but you get the gist...) The idea of using an old quilt for upholstery might seem like sacrilege to some, but we think it's a clever and intriguing concept...

The quilts and furniture in these photos don't reflect our personal style but they're lovely and we're inspired by the idea. Wouldn't it be fun to take a bright, modern quilt with bold shapes and upholster a vintage OR modern chair?!

The upholstered pieces in these photos, for sale in an unidentified Michigan shop, were created by a company called Patricia Wood & Company (120 E. Main Street Harbor Springs, Michigan 49740, 231-526-8868). You can see more examples of their work here.
