Interesting Detail on High End Chairs

Chair with Serged Edges Showing

Another quick shot from the Show House I recently visited. This is a detail we’ve seen on clothing before and I’m not surprised that it made it to home fashions.  Notice the seams on this high end chair.  Instead of the serged edges and seam allowances being hidden inside the upholstery, they are on the outside! I think it is a fun look and gives a very straight lined chair a bit of whimsy, making it more approachable and a chair that will definitely get used. To see the entire chair, check out my article on “How to Use the Color Gray in Your Home”.

    I think the unfinished edges of a seam look best unseen, even in clothing. It seems like a fad that I certainly wouldn’t invest money in.
