Case Studies: Mayan Print Armchair

Welcome back to the maus blog. In this episode we'd like to share with you the story behind this beautiful contemporary armchair.



The armchair before restoration


Our client contacted us with a request to use several different fabrics that her son- who has spent the last 6 months travelling Central America- had bought from market stalls in Mexico City.



We were delighted when these awesome Mayan weaves were dropped in the workshop, and we were quickly onto designing which fabric to use where.



Strong colours with strong patterns need to be subtly tamed when being used in contrast so as not to take away from the wow factor of each individual pattern.





We decided to break up the pattern with bright colours within a palette that complimented both fabrics, and we couldn't be happier with the result. A beautiful modern armchair with a story, another successful maus refurbishment, and another happy customer.
