Colorful office chair makeover

Even though the office is a space where work is carried out so there’s not much room for unnecessary details, it doesn’t mean that you can’t add a little style to the décor. An office is primarily composed of a desk and a chair. The desk can be personalized with your choice of color and there’s not much you can do about the rest. The chair, on the other hand, can be reupholstered and turned into a colorful focal point for the room.

This used to be a simple mid-century office chair. It has a plain and quite boring design, with brown upholstery and an overall sad look. That was until its owner decided to give it a makeover. The once old and sad chair became a colorful and fun piece of furniture. The chair had a metal base that didn’t need to be adapted at all and thus remained as such. The arms, however, needed to the sanded and varnished. They were brought back to life and they now make a beautiful detail.

The most difficult part was reupholstering the seat. It used to be covered with brown fabric. It wasn’t an ugly look but it seems old and a little plain. That’s why the fabric was replaced with something a little more colorful. The new fabric features a blue background with yellow flowers. It’s a simple and beautiful pattern and it also goes nicely with the classic design of the chair.{found on designsponge}.
