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.
