Today I just happened to be driving in the vicinity of Kepler's, the upholstery shop which is working on the Auction Slipper Chairs. So do you think I could pass up the opportunity to take a look?! Of course not. A stop to view the progress was a must.
The work was scheduled to begin yesterday, and it is always a good idea to touch base when a job...any job...is in progress. If there's a problem, or a difference of opinion about the direction of the work, it's much better to catch it earlier rather than later!
Just one surprise was waiting. Another layer of fabric, a burnt orange brocade, had been hiding beneath the lovely floral. Is it possible that at one point the chairs looked even worse than they did when I found them?
The verdict: the workmanship looks great, the fabric is gorgeous and according to Marvin, is very durable and great to work with. So I left the shop happy. How would you have felt seeing a pair of your chairs in this state of flux...Excited? Frightened?!
