Vintage Hitchcock chair bench

This item has been sold
I found these adorable reproduction Hitchcock chairs online when I was searching for chairs suitable for making a small bench. When nestled in next to each other they make the perfect sized bench for an entry foyer, for putting on your shoes in the morning. It’s the perfect sized bench for the foyer that’s not too large.

Storage ottoman

Storage ottoman 15
Oh my. The fabric that was on this poor ottoman…..I’m not even sure I can put it into words. And the fringe? Ugh. But luckily I could see past all that. It just so happens that I had just bought some gorgeous blue ikat fabric to recover my own vintage platform rocker. But now, sadly, that project is going on the back burner because the fabric will be perfect for this roomy ottoman.

Ikat is everywhere!

It seems that you can’t go into a store these days without spying an Ikat print, or ten. It comes in every color under the sun and works with loads of different interiors. Don’t think that your decor needs to be eclectic, or have that world traveler look, in order to make this work. It works with just about everything…..modern, vintage, ‘Pottery Barn’, industrial, beachy, and even traditional. These funky designs are what inspired my recent wrought iron bench redo!

Wrought iron vanity seat – Ikat

This item has been soldWrought Iron Vanity Bench - Ikat
This poor little seat was just begging to be rescued from it’s frumpy ways. I covered up all the gold streaks on the wrought iron frame, and added a modern, chic, gorgeously golden Ikat print. And the colors are neutral enough to fit into any decor. It’s the perfect seat for the front door, for putting on shoes. Or maybe in front of your vanity. It would even look great in the bathroom!
