Fun and funky upholstered finds

I love the wave print and channel tufting
on this old-meets-new, stately chair.
It's the creativity that Bonnie Bonell loves the most about her job. With skilled hands and TLC, she gives new life to tired quality pieces, transforming them into one-of-a-kind furniture that will be used and loved for many more years to come.

Bonnie's company, Bonell's Upholstery, celebrates 40 years in business this year, and recently hosted a well-attended anniversary show and sale for the occasion.

Among the pieces for sale were funky chairs, fun ottomans and colourful pillows. Dressed in updated fabrics and with details such as piping and nailheads, they looked current and fresh - totally prepared to give personality and flair to any home. What a great idea for a Christmas!

Here are some of my favourites:

Upholstered in a rich purple velvet and with details in
a contrasting fabric, this chair looks sumptuous and
somewhat decadent. It's the perfect statement chair
for an entrance, bedroom, living room, or creative office. 

A high-gloss black gives this cane chair a modern
expression. The contrasting fabrics add interest.

The vintage needlepoint flower print is a perfect choice
for this curvy bench. Ideal for a "shabby chic" or French
country interior, it's a practical piece for a front hall or at
the foot of a bed.
Bonnie turned a vintage patchwork fabric into a groovy pillow,
with leather on the back. Love it!
A small footstool or ottoman can be that single,
special item that give a whole room a certain mood
and personality.

The fabric on this chair is hand-painted and stencilled by Bonnie.
Contrasting purple velvet on the back. Cute!
