Michael found a vintage Steelcase bench from the 60s and decided to replace the ripped vinyl upholsery — with Missoni! Michael chose a thoughtful mix of Missoni Kew and Missoni Claremont to totally transform and update the steel bench.

Missoni upholstery-weight fabric is not cheap — but it elevated the bench to great heights!

After purchasing the Missoni textiles from Amara, Michael hired a local upholsterer to do the magic. You can read about the transformation in a series of posts on Michael’s blog: Bound by String | Steel cased in Missoni.
