eero saarinen executive chair knock off. the vinyl upholstery was ripping off and the foam was gnarly, but it had good bones and i thought it would be cool to reupholster. i've never reupholstered anything before, so i knew this was going to be interesting.
i went to mood and got a really nice loose weave red canvas that i thought wood look awesome.
real executive chairs have two seams on the arms, so i decided to go that route. i test drove it with brown fabric. this is also the first time i've ever made a pattern by draping!
diyupholsterysupply.com! it's a bendable strip of aluminum that you staple one side, wrap your fabric around the edge, catch it on the barbs, and hammer it closed. that did the trick!
