Embroidered chairs by Peter and Sally Nencini

Apr 28, 2011

I'm in full-fledged covet mode over these embroidered chairs by Peter and Sally Nencini.  The talented duo transforms old chairs into functional works of art.  Peter creates the designs, and Sally reupholsters and embroiders. 

I'm a big fan of Bauhaus art (Kandinsky and Stölzl), so it's no surprise that I'm so keen on these geometric and simplified designs.  Add fabric and midcentury furniture into the mix, and it becomes my kryptonite!

Wow. The beige chair with the abstract floral design is my favorite. I don't even think I could bring myself to sit on it. It's really cool seeing this type of artwork translated into fiber design. Thanks so much for sharing!

Yeah, really gorgeous! I can feel some scandinavian inspiration in the white one in the middle. Looks a lot like the folk costumes (is that even the right word?) I've seen here in Sweden. Pretty!!
