Javadrinker, I have a similar piece that my husband found in the alley behind the house and brought it back to life.

Looks great! I love the print you chose for the cushions. Looking for more pieces here...lol.

Found a pair of these chairs for an absolute steal a few weeks back and just recently had the cushions re-upholstered. Old on the left and the new fabric on the right. Would have cost me a fortune to use the same fabric on both sides of the cushions so i just went with a matching green for the undersides. There was enough left over however for three extra small cushions. Purchased from Spoonflower, the artist is Woody Miller.

Last month, on Facebook, I posted some pictures of a five band sofa without cushions and table that I picked up in Northern California. I had the cushions done in a poplar fabric I selected from the garment district in downtown Los Angeles. One side has a red background and the flip side has the same pattern but a black background. I had planned to sell the coffee table but now I think I will keep it.

Showing off MY rattan here...

This is a salesman's sample set of Paul Frankl rattan furniture. Not as impressive as the human-sized stuff, perhaps, but my living space and budget aren't all that big.



As you can see, I had to build a display for this stuff (and make tiny cushions).

You did great work. It almost looks life size.

Actually...those salesman samples are pretty rare and always seem to go for a ton of money... This is awesome...love the miniature lamps as well!!

MaukaHale - Thank you! This was a real challenge to do, since I usually work in a much smaller scale.

tikilease - This is only the second Paul Frankl sample set I have ever seen, anywhere. The other was for sale in a pricey Venice Beach shop with the ominous "call for price" label (dealer-speak for "you can't afford this, peasant" - and it wasn't as nice as this one). Glad you like the lamps; they were a LOT of work, but I think it was time well spent.
