Do you remember this velvet beauty, I have a collection of kilim cushions and Turkish rugs, leather Chesterfield and leather armchairs, most of which has been inherited. Although I would like to have a fashionably grey, minimalist interior, it just doesn’t seem to happen for me.
Back to the velvet beauty, she is a good height and very sturdy and the upholstery is well packed, the lovely green velvet is damaged. I love kilim upholstered furniture and decided to give her a new look.
She is standing on a lovely old & very worn, holey carpet that I have had for ages, I have used it as a backdrop for my stall in the van. Apparently it was owned by a ballerina, which may or may not be true, but another reason why I couldn’t part with it.
So inspired by the likes of Niki, I decided to give them both a makeover
Unfortunately I had been working on the carpet and hadn’t hoovered before I took the pic, but I did want you to see her.
