This morning, I found Margaret Elman's amazing Chair Couture chaise. So I started poking around her website and found more great things. The chaise above looks like it's got a traditionally patterned fabric, but if you take a good look, it's the sun reflecting through water in a swimming pool. Margaret takes one-of-a-kind French antiques and upholsters them in fabrics printed with photos from nature, including green grass, sunlight through trees, dandilions and more. Each piece is made to order, using either Margaret's own or high-end (Kravat) fabrics.
Chair Couture has been featured in Elle Decor, House & Garden, O Home and many others. Take a look at her website. These pieces are really fun.
