Fit for a Queen or at least a Really Spoiled Princess

Every girl wants to feel like a princess at some time in their life even if they love modern design and hate foo foo and ruffles.

For those stylish city girls of sophisticated tastes ( and for foo foo lovers as well ) the one of a kind seating from Chair Couture will do the trick. Feminine yet Funky, each piece is finished and upholstered to bring out it's own unique character.


Exquisite detailing and finish work is highlighted by the choice of fresh, current fabrics guaranteed to command attention.


Striking contrast between frame and fabric creates an almost electric feel.


Margaret, the creative and "perky as her chairs" mind behind the line describes her concept. " My idea for Chair Couture is to "re-dress" the vintage French and Italian pieces I love so much in bold modern fabrics ( and sometimes paints) making every bergere, fauteuil, settee, and boudoir bench a striking one-of-a-kind art piece. These chairs are designed to not only fit in, but actually stand out and become a focal point in the most contemporary environments.


I love the harmony that she achieves between the traditional styling of the frames and the contemporary fabrics. It takes a keen eye to be able to pull this off so well. I know, I've tried and failed!!! It's wonderful to have a resource that specializes in this genre to help designers and homeowners achieve this look successfully.




Ingenuity in design is a rare thing and I commend her for her forward thinking. I am looking forward to seeing her expand her line.

Very fun style! I love the idea that younger people could take classic pieces handed down from Grandma and update with them with such cool fabric or paint! They maintain the history and class of beautiful furniture but put their own stamp on it. Nothing wrong with that in my book!

Love it, Jackie! Thanks for sharing!
