Faux Fabulous

Assistant Editor Jennifer Bonds found this faux ostrich skin by Celerie Kemble. I thought it would be a wonderful choice for the chair’s second life.

Made from eco-friendly composite, it’s easy on the environment and easy on my limited housekeeping skills. A quick swipe with a damp paper towel is all that’s needed to keep it looking spiffy.

I was surprised by the actual color of the material when it arrived, having been too impatient to order a memo sample. Because the finish is a metallic, it looked like a lovely pale aqua on my computer screen. In reality, it is a pretty deep green.

Lesson learned -- never buy fabric without seeing a sample first.
