Upholstery DIY Design

Sophie Robinson – the Grand Interior Design Challenge Judge and Award Winning Interior Stylist for leading Home Magazines – has featured The Stripes Company aka Deckchairstripes signature stripes when re-upholstering these beautiful chairs in her Home DIY Design Project.

We feel honoured Sophie has chosen our striped fabric for this project!

Striped fabrics can be vibrant or more muted. Above Sophie has used a more vibrant stripe on the bottom edges of the chair in cream, red, turquoise, green and orange striped material (named Basketball) along with a more muted fabric on the back of the chair in pink, green, beige, green, turquoise stripes named Dressage.

These statement stripes complement the traditional floral bird design fabric. The end result – a timeless upcycled recover!
