The owner of an insurance adjusters office was looking for an upgrade to her executive seating. But couldn't find something she liked enough to buy. She gave us a call about re-covering her existing chairs.
You have to admit that the typical oxblood was ... uninspiring.
She had seen an example of what she wanted and sent us a photo of it on her computer screen. The pearlescent sheen on the soft vinyl was a must. As were the crystal buttons. Especially the crystal buttons.
We sent her some vinyl samples with the pearl finish and she picked one almost immediately. Locating the crystal buttons was more challenging. Many sizes and colors were available, but not for upholstery use. The bases and the loops needed to be robust enough to be pulled strongly down into the deep tufts in her chair. We ended up using regular upholstery button bases and gluing the crystal buttons over them. Strength and beauty!
So the shimmer and the flash and a fresh look that gave her space the lift she was looking for.
