Bargello Brights

Bargello, the wavy needle-work pattern popularized in the 1960's and 1970's, is one of my favorite styles.  Jonathan Adler reintroduced bargello on his pillows and upholstery.  A very chic client of mine had a dining room set from her grandmother, complete with original bargello-covered seats.  The "groovy" bargello seats were the perfect counterpoint to the traditional English mahogany furniture.

I was delighted to find a set of original vintage bargello seat covers recently.

The set included 7 covers that had been removed from their original chairs.  They are hand-sewn on to backing, ready to cover chairs.  These covers would be such a fun way to jazz up traditional dining chairs or to use in a breakfast room with some punchy faux bamboo chairs.  The quality is amazing- I cannot imagine how many hours someone spent making these fab seat covers.

They measure 20.5" L x 19" W and are ready to cover chair seats.  Just pull them tight over the seat and staple underneath.  The price is $250 for the set of 7.  If you are interested, email me at  You could also use them to make accent pillows.
