Footstool & Lamp

Footstool & Lamp
Help me out here. What is the name of this pink fabric? You know, the stuff that starchy prom dresses were made from in the 80’s? With pink puff-ball sleeves and crinkly material? That’s what this stool was wearing. Not so pretty in pink. Time for a change. 
 Marianne from Noces de Coton decided it needed a paint job and a welcome into the current decade with some modern but classic fabric. Much better. 
 Also, check out her lamp redo HERE. It too was rocking a dated glazed look, but now is light and happy! Thanks Marianne!

    I think you’re thinking of taffeta…it could be that, but it looks more like a flame stitch chintz fabric to me. Love your blog, btw. I look forward to sending you some of my b4 and aftr’s sometime soon.

    I remember moire taffeta was all the rage in decor and bridesmaids dresses too. I’m over it now but I remember thinking I had to have a round table covered in it.

    Your foot stool looks so much better now and the lamp is fabulous.
