These RE:cover chairs, by Swedish designer Fredrik Färg, are flea market finds that have been redesigned with 100% recyclable moldable polyester felt. Fredric Färg draws inspiration from the classic timeless fashions of tailored suits and dinner jackets. The chairs are first restored and then fitted with a new “textile dress/structure” which is attached to the frame.
I love that these chairs are made with 100% recycled materials that have been given a whole new life. I also really enjoy that Fredrik Färg has not only given the chairs a new life as utilitarian pieces but also as works of art, each one is classic yet unique.
While there are a lot of ways to add texture into your space, felt is a new, trendy material working its way into the home. Felt panels have been widely used in commercial spaces not only for its texture, but for its sound absorption qualities too. These have typically been in neutral colors with no pattern or variety. Now the world of felt has improved with bright, vibrant color options, unique shapes, and fun cutouts.
