Upholstery 101 – Art Chair in Progress

I have a wonderful apprentice helping me in my upholstery studio. In exchange for her help on my projects, she gets to work on her own ‘art chair’ – a window-back dining seat which will have a unique artistic element (stay tuned for the ‘After’ photos!). Here are some photos of her progress:
