We Love The Laundress & The Laundress Loves Us!
Lindsey Boyd of the Laundress has a clean approach to living, LITERALLY! The crisp, whites she helps to protect with her line “The Laundress” are through out her living space.
I am thrilled to be helping Lindsey as she prepares for her new baby girl. True to her taste, Lindsey steered white when it came to creating a rocking chair for the quiet nights and early morning days when she sooths baby Chloe by rocking her to sleep.
To stay in Lindsey’s style we chose an antique wing chair and repurposed it the way that only Tiger Lily’s could. We added a swivel to the base of the chair to make it rock, and reupholstered the existing frame in a white Belgium Linen.
The outcome was fantastic. We tied together the room by adding a decorative bolster in the fabric Lindsey has on her roman shade.
A Few Tips:
- When looking for a chair to repurpose into a swivel rocker, make sure the base has a low center of gravity. If you take a high legged chair, you will loose quite a bit of the height when you cut off the legs.
- Choose a fabric that works in your space and plenty of it. To conceal the swivel rocker, the chair will need to be skirted.
- Think ahead. Just as we repurposed the wing chair to be a swivel, someday the chair might find another home in your house. Using a neutral fabric can help in the transition.
