Extreme Chair Makeover: Turkish Parlor Chair
You would not have to do this but we think it makes the chair look more "era authentic" We used a black base fabric that had a slight floral design and has some shine on it. We doubled this fabric to give it more weight and durability and in this case the black skirt is 7 1/2 inches long. This immediately changes the scale of the chair. At the same time we added fabric to the top which duplicates the style of exotic chairs in the Victorian era.
The black fabric created the backdrop for the 5 inch Gold lace fringe which was applied to the skirt and the top with glue. Although we elected to do some sewing on this project this could be done no sew with hem tape and adhesive.
So there you have it, a Turkish parlor chair for less than 150.00.
