Hide CaptionShow CaptionWhen shopping at antique stores or estate sales to replicate the look of a period piece – be sure not to confine yourself to the exact era of that one piece, you might be able to find that exact same look in something from a different period as long as it has the same lines and scale.
In the inspiration room a small seating area by the window includes two antique Baltic silk upholstery slipper chairs. Halili found two Empire style chairs with the same lines and proportion for makeover room. The old upholstery is torn off to make room for the new. The upholster starts with an under layer of muslin, followed by strips of webbing. The original horse hair was saved from the old upholstery and added back with a layer of batting over it. The final layer is a beautiful cream cotton fabric; with a fresh coat of flat cream paint and some gold details the old chairs are transformed into twin masterpieces.
