Chairloom's Mission of Second Chances

A couple of months ago I was reading Lonny and I stumbled upon this ad:

It said "Reuse and Reinvent" and that got me curious so I went to Chairloom's site and absolutely fell in love with it.

Molly Andrews and Tracy Jenkins are partners at Chairloom, an upholstery company located in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. They find antique furniture and bring them to life with color, patterns and beautiful fabric.

Chairloom has two guiding principles behind their work: "One: The value of being found.  We cherish the good bones beneath torn, faded or otherwise timeworn fabric.  Two: The importance of second chances.  Life is all about second chances and there is always the hope of being found when we are lost."

It's classic vintage furniture pieces paired with unexpected choices of fabric in a more contemporary style.

These two chairs are my favorite. Ikat at the back and geometric in front.

These are so gorgeous. Check out the hot pink fabric on the settee that was passed down through three generations.
