Tie Seats

The idea of upholstering furniture in neckties fascinates me.

Mag Ruffman has a tutorial on her site, Tool Girl.

The DIY Network also has a tutorial.

Diane from Della Mano Designs teaches a class in Maine (more info here).

If you want to buy a chair with its seat already woven, Globalicious has several available in her Etsy store (this one is a rocking chair)

There are no rules that weaving has to be in a straight line.
If the avant garde is more your cup of tea, perhaps you'll be inspired by this Art Chair by Tracy Deramus.
Daddy's Fattys Armchair was created by weaving vintage neckties onto a vintage Harry Bertoia chair.

I previously posted about Alabama Chanin's woven chair seats.

You can always upholster without weaving.

Inspiration from Country Living Magazine, March 2008
Sandy Stone used vintage neckties stitched to a foundation backing to upholster a 1950's chair.

This amazing ottoman was made by Meg Jewell

I love the green one!

Did you see this dress? I thought of you immediately. If I had the figure, I would wear it.
