Chairs that take flight!

I’m so excited to share these beautiful bird chairs that I recently reupholstered with 100% natural latex foam, luxurious wool batting and organic cotton fabrics. Kristi chose a different colorway of the same bird patterned cover fabric (by Birch Fabrics – available from Fabric Worm) for each of her four chairs, which I managed to finish just in time for the arrival of her new baby!
