A Vanity Chair Meets Animal Prints

Usually when it’s time to reupholster, it’s easy to think of armchairs, sofas and dining chairs. But the chair above shows that a wide range of chairs look great with new upholstery. This is a repurposed hairpin leg vanity seat. It dates back to around the last mid-century.

The chair pairs wonderfully with the animal print fabric. The bold fabric really juxtaposes the thin elegant frame of the chair. If you’re looking for some instant glamour and pizazz, animal prints are your way to go. They’re fun, sassy and exotic all in one go. Plus, there’s a ton of ways to have fun with animal prints. They run from more naturalistic brown shades to wild unnatural shades like blue.

If you’d like to get this look, you’ll of course want to check out some animal print selections. A few style options that are similar to the chair above are below. Otherwise, feel free to browse all animal prints here.
