Art Nouveau Chairs

I found three fabulous Art Nouveau chairs from the late 1800s at the Orange Circle with very old swirly mohair fabric! I'm not sure if it is the original fabric (might be), but it certainly goes beautifully with the curvy lines of the chairs.

So then the search was on for a table that would go with them. I found this fabulous table on Craig's List and I like the curved lines of the brackets and the whimsical ball design too.

I had the chairs reupholstered using the old mohair fabric and now I just have to find the right gimp and trim and I will put that on myself.

Having only three chairs actually works perfectly for me because where the fourth chair would go is the walkway through to the kichen. Ah the joys of a tiny house!

I'm liking my new table and chairs!

Here is a new creation of mine. I love walking in midnight gardens, which is the inspiration for this.
I love the red flowers, which I found at Paper Whimsy. They have the most amazing images! I found the moth, moon and crown there also.
Now on to the next project!
