Side chair in Camira wool fabric

A 19th Century oak side chair reupholstered in Frenzy by Camira

It ain't easy to line up skinny stripes, particularly when the fabric is so thin - I'd call this 95% successful...

People often say 'you must be a perfectionist' and I take this as a compliment because they really mean 'your work is neat', but I'm not a perfectionist at all. I think things you make with your hands should be as perfect as you can get them without letting the process of getting things right annoy you, so '95% straight' sometimes has to be good enough.

And this chair is definitely good enough. But that white stripe on the corner? It ain't straight.

This was a commission.
