Interior designer Elena Calabrese’s vision for this pair of Bergère chairs was to reinvent them to fit in with her client’s global aesthetic. Learn more about the project here.


Before

The chairs was upholstered with a graphic pattern, Schumacher’s “Vail Chenille” upholstery fabric, and the cushion inserts were replaced with high-resiliency foam. We removed the nail heads and replaced them with a Samuel & Sons double French welt trim to match the lacquered wood frames. The wood frames were refinished in a custom color burnt orange lacquer.

 

After

Revitaliste reupholstered these Heirloom Bergère Chairs in Schumacher "Vail Chenille" in Emerald and lacquered the wood frames in a custom color burnt orange lacquer.
