ORIGINAL CHAIR ART
A Brief History of Sittin' Pretty
Jenny Ellis a maker of Upcycled Chairs with Artistic Flair located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC. She has used her extensive experience of over 30 years in the fabric arts, interior design, upholstery arts, and furniture fields to create one of a kind statement chairs and home furnishings.
While she doesn't make furniture from scratch, she collects furniture orphans, roadside finds, and raw furniture frames and turn discarded, broken, and wooden “blank canvases” into amazingly new and fresh furnishings. She loves the interesting lines, hand-carved legs and arms--details that you can’t get today at big box stores. These old chairs carry silent histories with whispers of elegance and grace. Restoring old chairs has become her passion. And now, she can be in style and “Green” at the same time. She enjoys bringing new life back into her chairs and home furnishings and adding personality and an element of surprise where there once was none.
Jenny hopes you add her chair art to your home to enjoy for many years to come. Your ideas are always welcome in any collaborations that you bring her way.
