WHITE MATELASSE

It is very hard (okay, you really cannot tell) to see the different patterns of matelasse in this slipcover. I did this from old bedspreads and table skirts my client had laying around, not being used. I think I used about 5 different patterns, but because it was all white, it worked beautifully.
And, most importantly, her cat really seemed to like 'her' new chair!

Beautiful, as always, and what a great way to use items that otherwise would just be kept in a drawer or closet.

Matelasse is one of my most favorite fabrics ever! This chair looks fantastic, not to mention comfy! I love the idea of an all white chair...it can morph into any room and can be accessorized in an instant! Big Hugs xOxO Nerina

Beautiful! I've often thought about purchasing a matelasse spread to make a slipcover. Maybe I will.

OH Clever girl!!
It looks great... I still have not bought myself a matelasse spread. Been meaning to for years. But reusing multiple pieces is such a terrific idea!!!
have a great weekend Tamerie!!! xxx Julie
