Spotlight on: Chairloom

If you're a regular reader of Lonny, you've probably seen the cute ad for Chairloom above in the last several issues. Chairloom is a modern upholstery business run by Molly Worth that just happens to be located in the Philadelphia suburb of Ardmore!

Chairloom's portfolio demonstrates just how transformative fabric can be, especially when talking about an unlikely duo of traditional furniture paired with a punchy print. Choice fabrics include Virginia Johnson, Hable Construction, Studio Bon, Rubie Green, and Katie Ridder.

Feast your eyes on these lovely pieces:

You can never go wrong with a little Hable Construction:

And last but not least, my own chair, in a lovely Rubie Green print:

When I approached Molly to reupholster my chair in the Rubie Green "East Village" fabric, I knew I could expect a job well done; what I didn't expect was how friendly and genuinely excited she is for each client's vision. Even if you aren't in the greater-Philadelphia area, I highly suggest checking out Chairloom's work for those upholstery projects that you don't have enough inspiration to finish.

p.s. I don't receive any compensation for the post--I'm just highlighting a local small business that I think is a cut above the rest.


  1. I love your chair and I've heard good things about chairloom! One of these days....

  2. Thanks, Fran. I adore it. I waited until I picked just the right fabric and I couldn't be more pleased. It was finished about this time last year and I think I love it even more now than I did last October!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
