Lone Fox begins with IKEA’s common TULLSTA chair, which you should purchase simply as a body with out the extra slipcover for beneath $200. Different supplies you will have embrace ½ inch staples, a staple gun, a glue gun, and scissors. Many material shops have a big number of bouclé, fake fur, and sherpa materials in wealthy, creamy whites with varied textures, weights, and worth factors. Lone Fox’s challenge wound up utilizing 3 ½ yards of an expensive upholstery-grade sherpa that got here in at just below $40 per yard.
He begins by beginning the material across the outer body of the chair, utilizing the staple gun to stick it firmly. He then glues down the bisected pool noodles to type a curve, which he then covers in material and staples within the creases. He repeats the method across the entirety of the chair, creating tender waves, which he finishes by stapling beneath. He then covers the inside again of the chair by stapling and pleating extra material and provides a backside panel to the entrance. The ultimate step is masking the chair’s seat cushion, which he does by stitching the material to the underside of the cushion with a big needle and embroidery thread.
