Lesson in Textiles II: When Bad Things Happen to Good Furniture

Lesson in Textiles II: When Bad Things Happen to Good Furniture

Just an example of how the wrong fabric can completely ruin a piece.
I actually thought these were being sold with the intention of being reupholstered. Okay, this may be the right fabric if you have a jungle theme or are a thirteen year old girl, but I generally wouldn’t choose cheetah print for something I’m selling. They kinda had a Flinstone’s vibe, but the fabric was so totally fake…
Surprisingly (to me), a lady was flipping for these and actually jumped on me for asking the price ($100 for the set- a more neutral fabric could double the asking price, IMO).
At the end of the day, these chairs sold because the right buyer came along, but it was definitely a risk.
