Sometimes, things that are well planned out.... work in a space beautifully. We saw these chairs as high potential and bought the set of eight. The upholstered back was fun, but the vintage cane was in perfect condition, so we decided it should be showcased.
So we stripped the fabric, and painted the chairs a glossy black.
I love the way the fabric changes when it hits the light and you can really see the pattern, but blends in when needed.
