At Sunday's HOT, HOT, HOT Brooklyn Flea I had the pleasure of being next to Molly Worth of Chairloom. While the temps were in the 90's with bright sun and humidity, Molly was upbeat and relaxed the whole day - despite being up since around 4:30 and getting to the schoolyard at 8:00 am for the earlybirds. Molly makes the trip to Brooklyn from outside Philly. She finds chairs worthy of a second chance and reupholsters them in fabulous modern fabrics. Her motto is 'reuse and reinvent', which definitely resonates with me.
This sweet victorian pair in Hable Construction fabric was my favorite. She has 'the eye' and also offers fabric consultation. On Sunday she brought several unfinished chairs so that you can select fabric to suit your color needs.
She will be at the flea again on 6/22 then off for the Summer and returning in the Fall. View Chairlooms catalogue here.
