SLIPCOVERED CHAIRS

Sometimes the back of the chair is much more interesting than the front.
Another case in point.
There is no real perspective in this shot, but this is a child-size chair.
A Parsons Chair with contrast fabric in the pleats and on the buttons.
A chair purchased at an Estate Sale for $10.  Underneath, very ugly gold velveteen.  Slipcovered in a reproduction bark cloth.  It makes all the difference in the world.

Tried to do the slip cover thing on a chair at home but can't get it right. Looks askew no matter what we do and after you sit in it the slip cover is messed up even worse.
