How To: Upholstery

Reupholstering a chair can seem intimidating, but it is much easier than it looks. And lucky for you, many of the CWD textiles are suitable for upholstery! We recommend you discuss your specific project with your upholsterer before purchasing fabric, but we have provided approximate measurements so you may make a reasonable estimate of your needs. Happy upholstering!

How To: Paint Suggestions

Finding the perfect paint color is rarely an easy task. To help you out, we have compiled a few of our favorites to get you started. We have paired them with some of our favorite pillows to show you how a wall color can make your decorative pieces pop. Benjamin Moore is my preferred brand of choice, but you can certainly color-match these colors at your local paint store. Enjoy!
