If you saw this chair in a thrift store would you jump at the chance to give it a new life or is it in such disrepair that you would just have to pass it by? Well, Irina wanted to take on the challenge and had an incredible vision for this lucky little piece.

After deconstructing the chair, refinishing the wood and reinforcing the joints Irina was ready to begin on the upholstery. She had sketched out the design for the finished piece and once her fabric arrived she was ready to begin on the embroidery and fabric collage.
