REBIRTH - VINTAGE CANE & BAMBOO CHAIRS



Most of you know I design modern Lucite furniture. You probably don't know that I love to find vintage pieces and give them new life. Pictured is a pair of vintage bamboo and cane chairs, before and after. The chairs are available for sale at TURQUOISE the showroom of Vanessa De Vargas.

Thanks Jordan

Hi! I am an interior design student working on a project that is refinishing bamboo and cane furniture. I came across your blog in my search and would love to hear about the process that you took to do this...the chairs look fantastic! I will check back here as I don't feel comfortable posting my email address.
Thanks for any help or tips!

They look great - Can you please tell me how many yards of fabric this transformation required?
Thanks in advance.
