Adding a topper to your kitchen chairs or dining set is an economical way to give them an instant update. A topper is a little slipcover that covers just the top of the chair.
After giving her kitchen a complete makeover (it’s really beautiful!), my customer’s Windsor dining chairs looked outdated.
Instead of throwing them out and starting over she replaced the two end chairs with upholstered parson chairs. She used Waverly Strands Sterling fabric.
I helped her coordinate the remaining Windsor chairs with the new pieces by making fitted toppers from textured cotton linen trimmed with natural linen.
The textured cotton linen is thick with good body, which offered nice coverage over the wood spindles. Since the chair backs are exposed my customer decided on a shirt tail hem detail instead of ending the topper at the seat.
