About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →

    Hi Carla,

    Wow! I love your child’s rocking chair: #1 red is my favorite color; #2 it has a beautiful design on the material; #3 the wood on the rocker has a beautiful natural look; #4 you can’t beat a cute kitty on top. It looks just like a “grown-up” chair but fitted for a child. It would look beautiful in any environment. Thanks for sharing this. Also, good luck with your upholstery classes. Having classes online is awesome. Thanks again.

    Hi, I was wondering how much you sold this chair for. I have a little one with the exact same legs! On a fun note – on the bottom of the rocker rail it says Christmas 1942:)

    Hi Nicole,

    How fun! Maybe this one is the same date as yours, though I didn’t find a date on it. This chair is actually still available, priced at $365. Reupolstering it was almost as involved as re-covering a full sized chair, though on a smaller scale of course. We also added the curve to the top seat-back rail to give it a ‘softer’ look. I’d love to see a photo of yours if you have one (I think you can just post it here in the comments).

    Thanks for sharing!
    Carla
