Sally Nencini

I love thesa chairs! Sally Nencini is an upholsterer in London that uses embroidery in her work, and I have to say, Hats off to you Sally! And not only does she do such beautiful embroidery work, but she also makes adorable kids stuff and sells it on Etsy.

I think (for those of us without access to Sally) that it wouldn't be super terribly difficult to re-do a chair like this. I mean the embroidery part mostly, the upholstery part blows my mind a little. But I could maybe try it on a dining room cushion -- just to see how it goes. Sadly, it will never look as good as these chairs...
