On Saturday I mentioned a big sale at Silk Trading's Atlanta location (discounts are currently available online too). Their timeless linen-cotton stripes are among the bargains, so I thought it would be nice to look back at the upholstered settee in Mary McDonald's bathroom. When this ran in February 2009, domino editors suggested Silk Trading's pucker-y "Asusena." The seersucker I brought home last week, "Fusilli Stripe," is another great stand-in. Both are now available for around $15 per yard.
I won't be doing a big upholstered piece. Simple slipcovers for the seats of dining chairs (just a cozy table for two) are what I've got in mind. And inspiration for striped slipcovers always comes from Suzanne Rheinstein.
