DIYable: repurposed persian rug sling chairs


the collaboration between Still + Co. and Sit and Read is AWESOME. and DIYable! basically, they over-dye reclaimed Persian rugs with these bright colors and make them into modern sling back chairs.

each rug is deliberately chosen and then fastened on to the wrought-iron frame.  the chairs are handmade in Brooklyn, USA, making each one individual and unique.

these are definitely pieces of art – which justifies the $1650 price.  this project kind of resembles a post Kate made a little bit ago featuring the diy sofa covers.  dyeing your own fabric is a great way to easily make your room the colors you want it to be – without too much searching.  for instructions to dye your own goods, check out the post here.


  • if you have an old sling back chair frame and you want to re-invent the sling part, try this technique!
