Love to knit? Then I’ve got the project for you… cozy up to one of these awesome chairs this fall by taking inspiration from the UK’s Melanie Porter who showcases an entire collection of knitted gloriousness. Oh how I would LOVE to snuggle with a chair like this by the fire!
Decor8 shared this wonderful artist a while back, and I’m beginning to wonder how I might reupholster one of my own chairs with my novice knitting skills?
When in doubt, leave it to the pro. In Melanie’s words, “Each project starts with the chair itself – anything from an antique Victorian nursing chair, to a 1970s Egg chair – which is painstakingly stripped back to the frame, before being restored and reupholstered using traditional techniques. This blank canvas is then covered with a series of hand-knitted panels, especially created for each chair.”
Hot cocoa and a good book, anyone?
