  1. Great result, Sibylle! Gives me a couple of ideas for the 6 meters of this same IKEA fabric laying around :)

  2. 6m is plenty, you can do two!

  3. That´s a “Kracher”!
    Really, I love how it turned out!

  4. sibylle! esta increíble el sofacito!!! =) yo necesito uno! donde has encontrado el chollazo?
    Y una pregunta más, como has tapizado, lo has hecho tú??? podría ser un post DIY de como tapizar? sería lo mas!

    Hahaha! This is for a little lessons in castellano ;) jajaja

  5. Love the re-do! Kind of reminds me of beetlejuice :)

  6. Looks fabulous!! I’d like to do a big racing stripe on a similar chair I have–just ONE big contrast stripe down the center, of a different fabric applied. I wish I were pro at upholstery. =( Still learning! Bought a book!

  7. I love the fabric…amazing look. You are going to hate me… I was given the couch that would match that chair exactly. I love it and want to do the reupholster on it but very scared to attempt it. I don’t want to make a mess of a wonderful couch. You did a great job, very crisp and professional looking. You should do a tutorial. I see lots of tutorials but not with this shape or type of furniture which in my opinion is unique. Just found your site and am enjoying it.

  8. I love the chair, it looks classy and elegant. I can’t imagine that it could turn out that beautiful. Thank you for sharing your amazing project.
