Piece: Her reclaimed and refurbished Knoll chairs

“I've always had a thing for mid-century furniture. Growing up, my home was pieced together with vintage finds that my parents brought back to life. Everything was modern, bright and had a story (which I loved). When I got my first apartment in Austin, I did the same! I rummaged Craigslist and spent my weekends visiting estate sales in Austin to find the perfect statement pieces.

I found these two Knoll chairs with their original fabric that was ripped with deteriorating cushions. With a love for bright pops of color, I decided to use our Granada fabric to add a statement. To date, the Knoll Saarinen chairs are my absolute favorite pieces.”
